Plant Shrub Roses to Complete Your Spring Garden Planting

February 12th, 2012

Shrub roses are plants that can turn any average garden into wonder of color all summer long. You will find yourself lost in this colorful world when you approach the entrance of your garden and walk underneath a flowering archway with rose bushes growing freely. In bloom, rose shrubs are enchanting and most have a fragrance that brings on tranquility. As you walk through you will see the different rose colors; yellows, like a gorgeous setting sun; pinks settled among the green foliage brightly lit with grandeur; more of the deep reds that bring solidarity to the mind. The scents among these roses are as different as the colors that emit them. This becomes a small paradise where you feel compelled to sit among these creatures of beauty.

 

This picture may read like a dream, but it is truly obtainable for your own home. And it is not difficult to gather the right rose plants to bring out that small bit of heaven to your landscape.

 

Your first step is to scope out a few select spots around your garden or lawn area where you can plant the roses. Then, choose the roses that best fit your landscape. For example, if you have a small yard, choose The Fairy Rose or Red or Apricot Drift Roses as they are small growing.

After choosing the right one, or ones, order your new flowering shrubs, plant and sit back as they take center stage for a beautiful transition into the garden itself. Aside from light pruning, your beautiful new roses will be something that you can enjoy and take pride in for years to come, as they turn your average garden into a masterpiece of color. The compliments that you receive will make you proud to call this garden your own.

 

Be sure to check out Greenwoodnursery.com to see our rose bushes selection. The week of February 10th, all rose plants are 10% off.

Affordable Hedges

February 14th, 2011

Flowering Hedge

Image by Chad Horwedel via Flickr

I have been busy putting up pages for new plants over the past week. Some of the new plants are Juncus Blue Arrows,  Mahogany Ajuga,  Creeping Raspberry and Chocolate Mint (which I suggest planting in containers). A few plants making their return to Greenwood are the Tree Form Ardens,  Tree Form Lucy, and Tree Form Lady Stanley Hardy Hibiscus.

A project that is finally complete is bringing you 3 new departments: Affordable HedgesAffordable Flowering Hedges and Affordable Elegant Hedges. This has been a collective effort with everyone here at the office to find just the right plants for these departments. They had to be easy to grow, low maintenance and provide good density for hedging. They are sold as packages of 5 plants (same variety) with a Bio-Pak Fertilizer pack for each plant to plant 25 feet of hedge.

Next week temperatures here are scheduled to be in the upper 50’s, possibly low 60’s. A couple of weeks of weather like that will cause early spring bloomers to believe spring is arriving and their buds will swell up ready to pop. This happens quite often with trees such as the flowering cherry and pear varieties. A few weeks of warm weather followed by harsh temps again can damage the buds. When this happens, the trees may only have sporadic blooming at best and then leaf out. Mid to late spring, I receive lots of emails asking why their flowering trees didn’t bloom and this is the most common reason why they don’t. Warm weather during late winter followed by freezing weather is difficult on plants. The temperature fluctuation can also cause thin barked trees and shrubs to crack or split.

If you are following the Weekly Club Specials, then you already know that for this week only all of our rose varieties can be booked for spring shipping with a 10% discount. All of our Knockout Roses, Rugosa Roses and Drift (ground cover) Roses are reduced 10% now through Thursday, February 17th at midnight. Check yourClub Page for more weekly specials over the next 3 weeks. Plant your spring and summer gardening with Weekly Club Specials.

Be sure to “Like” our Fan Page to keep informed on new plants, specials and planting news from Greenwood Nursery.

Questions? Feel free to drop me an email: Email Questions. As owner of Greenwood Nursery, I have always made myself available to our customer base to help with questions or concerns.  I’m here. Just let me know if you need any help.

Until next time…….Cheryl

Drift Roses

September 20th, 2010

New from the Knockout Rose Family, are the Drift Roses. Drift Roses are gorgeous compact growing groundcover-like roses with miniature roses that will bloom continually from early spring to frost. Like their Knockout Relatives, the Drift Roses are tough, disease resistant and cold hardy as far north as zone 5.

They are sure to become a favorite for any type border. Prune back to 4″ in early spring (after the last hard frost) for best performance. Regular deadheading encourages re-blooming and helps maintain a tidy appearance.

Currently, we are booking our Drift Roses for shipping this spring. Click here to book your Red Drift Roses and Apricot Drift Roses.

P. Allen Smith talks about Drift Roses in a recent newsletter. It’s a good short article on these new landscape plants. For more information visit P. Allen Smith on Drift Roses

Growing Knockout Roses

May 17th, 2010

What can you plant in your landscape that will bloom beautifully from spring
through fall? Hands down, the longest blooming period goes to the Knockout
Roses! Here in zone 7, they start blooming around early April and
continue on to late fall. This past fall, my double reds continued with
blooms until Thanksgiving which was many weeks beyond hard frosts and
remained in leaf through early December.

Plant these gorgeous specimens in well drained, fertile soil in full sun.
With little attention, they will put on a spectacular show for months on
end. The Knockout Roses are smaller shrub plants maturing around 4 feet tall
with about a 3 foot width. They are easily maintained as an even smaller
size with regular shearing. Space the roses 3 to 4 feet apart for a dramatic
hedge. To keep maintenance to a minimum, prune them back anywhere from 6 to
12 inches above ground in late winter or early spring while dormant making
certain to prune out any broken or damaged branches. Mulch with organic
matter such as aged compost or aged manure mix. Spread the mulch at least 3
inches deep around the plant leaving a welled area at the immediate base of
the plant of around 3 to 4 inches wide so the mulch doesn’t touch the bark
of the plant. Apply an organic fertilizer designed for roses as directed on
the label.

As with other roses and plants with thorns, deer are not really drawn to the
Knockout Roses, so they do make dazzling color in areas where deer may be a
problem. The Knockout Rose Family has shown great resistance to the most
common problems of other roses such as black spot, mildew and rust.

Bringing Balance to Your Garden

May 17th, 2010

Bringing the four elements to the garden can open up many avenues into
oneself. Just as Feng shui corrects the positive and negative influences of
interior placement, incorporating the elements of Fire, Water, Air and Earth
can bring balance and peace to the garden.

The first element of Fire, representing the South, opens the flow of chi to
the head, neck, shoulder and arms. Its color is commonly red and can be
found in the fire from a fire pit or candles, Knockout Double Red Roses,
Japanese Red Maple, Weigela Wine and Roses, Echinacea Tomato Soup,
Gaillardia Burgundy, Monarda Fire Ball, Pineapple Sage, Arctic Fire Dogwood,
Nishiki Willow and the Cotoneaster Coral Beauty. Presence of Fire in the
garden can increase Productivity.

The second element of Water, representing the West, opens the flow of chi to
the abdomen and human emotion. Its color is commonly blue which can be
applied to a water fountain, bird bath, blue reflection ball, Russian Sage,
Nikko Blue Hydrangea, English Country Aster, Veronica Royal Candles,
Hibiscus Blue Satin and Hibiscus Blue Chiffon. The presence of Water brings
Serenity.

The third element of Air, representing the East, opens the flow of chi to
the chest and lungs. Although yellow is the color commonly used, air can
also be found through the use of whirligigs, wind chimes, windsocks and
fragrant plants such as Lavender, Lemon Thyme, Rosemary Arp, and Mock
Orange. Yellow can be found in the plants Lilium Painted Pixie, Yarrow
Moonshine, Forsythia, Sungold Cypress, Knockout Sunny Roses, Angelina Sedum,
Echinacea Mac-n-Cheese, and Black-Eyed Susans. The presence of Air in the
garden brings Happiness.

The fourth element of Earth, representing the North, opens the flow of chi
to the feet, legs and lower abdomen. Earth is green; the color of nature,
but can also be found in objects taken from Earth such as rocks/stone for a
path or wood from a fallen tree might be used to build a bench. Green can be
found in plants such as Heuchera Lime Ricky, Ornamental Grasses, Hostas,
Ferns, Spartan Juniper, Emerald Green Arborvitae and Boxwood Wintergreen.
Build Confidence with Earth in the garden.

The fifth element, and most forgotten, is Akasha. This element will open the
flow of chi to the human aura and the brain. Akasha, the center of the
universe, is the only element that we can’t see, feel, smell or touch. It is
energy or inner spirit. The colors of white and/or purple are the associated
colors for Akasha. Center your garden with Mock Orange, Hibiscus Violet
Satin, Hydrangea Incrediball, Anemone, Shasta Daisy, Echinacea White Swan,
Black Knight Buddleia, Old Fashion Lilac, Persian Lilac, Hibiscus Diana,
Hibiscus Morning Star, White Profusion Buddleia, Viburnum Japanese Snowball
and Lavender. Akasha in the garden creates harmony with the mind, body and
spirit.

Yes, I do have Russian sage in the Western area of my garden, Moonshine
Yarrow in the East, ornamental grasses in the North, Japanese Red Maple in
the South along with Mock Orange for Akasha and those are just the
beginning. Maybe that is why Steve and I feel so centered when we retreat to
our garden.

Whether you get your compass out and place the elements to their
corresponding colors and directions or just include these colors within your
garden or landscape, you can still reap the benefits of their presence. To
keep the positive/negative balance, place at least one corresponding plant
in each of the corresponding elements direction. This will allow the
elements to work together in unity.

Other ways to make your garden magical is to bring in plants that provide
fragrance and plants whose leaves or blooms will reflect the moonlight.
Fragrant plants will include: Lavender, Rosemary, Lemon Thyme, Oregano,
Spice Bush, Roses, Mock Orange, Old Fashion Lilac, Persian Lilac and
Sweetbay Magnolia. Plants whose leaves or blooms will reflect moonlight will
include: Variegated Solomon’s Seal, Burgundy Lace Fern, Limelight Hydrangea,
Incrediball Hydrangea, Russian Sage, Pink Muhly Ornamental Grass, Pee Gee
Hydrangea, Heuchera Mystic Angel, Fire & Ice Hosta, Patriot Hosta, and the
Nishiki Willow.
