Roses tested for hardiness
In conjunction with an article in our spring 2017 issue, Garden Making is offering 10 prizes of a David Austin English Rose grown on their own roots. (Garden Making issue No. 29 is now mailing to existing and new subscribers and on sale in stores or by mail order.)
For more than 50 years, David Austin has been capturing the romance of old roses — their seductive scents, attractive colours and full, voluptuous flowers — and marrying these qualities with modern roses bred for disease resistance and repeat flowering, writes Lorraine Flanigan in her report on the results of testing for the roses’ hardiness in Winnipeg and elsewhere.
To enter the draw, complete the entry form by the contest deadline, which is the first day of spring, March 20, 2017. Only one entry per person.
The draw is now closed.
