Talking Point Summary:

  • [00:06:22] “Unfair mystique surrounding roses, that they are hard to grow that, they take a lot of work.”
  • [00:09:47] “So we want to create a lot of new growth by taking off all of that old growth and letting them rejuvenate”
  • [00:17:35] “I don’t think for the money, there’s a plant that gives you the bang for the buck as far as blooming”
  • [00:22:40] “when you do plant them lots of organic material and make sure you don’t plant them too deep and again use some type of pre-start fertilizer”
  • [00:27:20] “You don’t have to prune the whole rosebush at one time.”
  • [00:35:05] “roses that’s one of those plants that you can have success with it from Yuma to Flagstaff.”
