My garden zone is 8 and though that sounds like a mild environment easy to garden in you would be sadly mistaken.

Zoning is only one element you need to consider in gardening. Your local growing conditions carry as much or more weight in what you can grow with success.

  1. You can propagate roses now, you just need more patience for rooting. The canes are harder than earlier in the season but they usually are more hardy as well. The ones in pots may need to get a better root system before putting them out in the ground, but since I really don’t know they size of the potted ones I can only guess. I don’t know your Zone or how cold your winters get. How long until a hard freeze hits? If you have a few weeks yet, you may be able to put them out in the ground and let the roots get started reaching out but be sure to protect them with a nice heavy mulch. Just don’t let the mulch touch the plant.
    As for the zinnia did it really develop seeds? Usually flowers are cut long before they have developed far enough to create seeds and once cut they do not continue to mature. If it really has seeds just give it a try, you never know what may work and the cost to try is very low.
    happy gardening!

    Is it too late to propagate roses (I live in central Pennsylvania) My roses are out doing themselves lately. I moved last summer and brought my favorite roses with me. I would like to have more bushes. I have some already started and in the ground. I also have some in pots that have leaves and roots. Should I just put them in the ground now?
    I love your site, it has been such a help to me.
    Another question. I recently received a bouquet of flowers that had a lime green zinnia in it. I dried it, can I plant the seeds in the spring and will they grow. I checked on sending for some seeds but the price plus the shipping was a lot.
    Blessings to you

  3. I feed my roses my composted chicken manure, I give them buckets full in the Fall. Over the Spring and Summer I use worm castings and a combo liquid fertilizer of Liquid Seaweed and Fish Fertilizer. I should write that in my post and attach links. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. I have found in recent years that I can keep black spot to a minimum by denuding my roses of all leaves in late Fall when I prune them and I spray the canes with a product called Green Cure, it is an organic fungicide. Black spot spores can overwinter on the canes and infect new leaves if not treated. I have not had to do this in years but I still remove all leaves in the late Fall of all my roses, which can also harbor the spores.
