A Season Of Everyday Roses. A Video Blog Postcomments (2) April 10th, 2013 in blogs
Video Length: 9:28
Produced by: Paul Zimmerman Roses
Last year my garden got away from me. I was writing my book Everyday Roses, I broke my finger over the winter and time just seemed to slip by. Because I write about, and work with, roses people assume my garden must be a picture of perfection. Guess what? It's not!
Because I haven't been able to get into the garden much the pruning is behind, weeds are out of control and more. Rather than try to fake the way it looks I thought it'd be fun, and honest, to spend a season in my garden with you as I work to bring it back into shape. We'll do some rose gardening, look at new roses, evalaute test roses and perhaps even take some field trips. Along the way I hope you will learn some things and I know I'll learn some things from you!
Welcome to the first video blog post in a series I'm calling "A Season Of Everyday Roses"

Everyone loves roses. If you always wanted to add roses to your garden but were too intimidated by their diva reputation, Roses Are Plants, Too is the blog for you.
Paul Zimmerman has grown thousands of roses for over 15 years and for ten of those years in a sustainable manner. His common-sense approach shows you how to integrate garden roses into your landscape by looking at them as nothing more than flowering shrubs, all the while encouraging you to trust your own "Gardener's Instincts" in the care of these beautiful plants.
You will learn how to prune and train climbing roses, and how to get the most "ka-bloom" out of your shrub, David Austin and Knockout rose bushes. You'll get tips on growing roses organically and trimming them all season to keep their shape. You'll discover the difference between own-root and grafted roses, and more. Much of the instruction will be via videos that Paul produces himself!
Paul Zimmerman ran a rose care company in Los Angeles before moving to South Carolina to start Ashdown Roses. Now he focuses on rose education and teaching via Paul Zimmerman Roses. He lectures, gives workshops, and judges rose trials around the world, and it is this experience he brings to this blog.
Whether you are new to roses or an experienced grower, Paul will open your garden to the vast diversity our national flower offers.
