Next Saturday, June 8, Mike and I will be on Rose Chat Radio at 10:30 eastern time with hosts Chris VanCleave and Teresa Byington. Chris is from Alabama and Teresa lives in Indiana, but according to Chris who contacted us to be guests on the show, they sound like they’re in the same room when on air. We’ll be talking about our Six Basic Steps for Growing Roses, sustainable rose gardening, our book, Roses for New England: A Guide to Sustainable Rose Gardening as well as the unique growing challenges for New England rose gardeners.
Chris has asked us to select 5 roses to discuss that grow well in New England and choosing only 5 will be a challenge since there are so many that grow well in our area. I’ve already chosen one, Super Hero, (see photo above), which is such a hardy, disease resistant rose with great form and color.
We hope you can listen to the show – tune in on-line – and you can even call in and say hi and ask questions. Here is the link to Chris’ blog, Redneck Rosarian (www.redneckrosarian.wordpress.com ) and to find out more about Rose Chat Radio, go to www.RoseChatRadio.com.
