American Rose;Sep/Oct2012, Vol. 41 Issue 11, p26
The author offers guidelines on rose growing in fall. She claims that fall is the ideal time to plant everything from roses to garlic to freesias because it is easy for the roots of new plants to become established before winter sets in. She cites her favorite bulb-type plants including freesias and daffodils. She also discusses pruning as another fall activity. She suggests that September/October are the best time to give roses a healthy feeding of organic goodies.
