All About Roses by Emily Lane


These are copies of the slides from Emily Lane’s April 2021 presentation All About Roses. The presentation was culled from a 4 hour symposium, and this is just the highlights. It touches on topics of rose selection, planting and maintaining roses, and landscaping with roses in ways that are adapted to our unique local climate and wildlife. This information is gold for any newcomers to the area who are interested in roses. On a personal note, with a lot of emphasis on starting with the right roses, Emily’s point of view on roses reflects experiences and approaches that I have adopted and advocated – ones informed by my own tendency to be unfussy (or neglectful) with my roses.
