The author discusses how rose growers can pledge to follow wordy resolutions with dedicated action in the U.S. He says that major rose resolutions must include feeding and irrigation aside from deadheading, pruning and soil amending. He adds that rosarians should have their entire heart in the undertaking because half-hearted activity will not lead to success. He also mentions the failure of many aspiring rosarians to fulfill resolutions in their intended plan.
