Be Ever-Blooming: Encourage & Educate

Recently, I was at a friend’s house who had climbing #roses that weren’t doing well and had no buds or blooms. I explained to my friends that #climbing roses don’t climb on their own like a vine does; rather, you as the #gardener have to train them by bending and forcing the new soft canes horizontal, which will produce fresh shoots. I wove in the branches to be horizontal within their trellis and pruned some unhealthy sections. About a week or more later, I returned to find one small bud starting to #bloom! I house sit for them soon so I’m hoping by the time they return most if not all their #roses will be #blooming with just a little tender loving care. It’s rewarding seeing struggling roses overcome and blossom…All they (and we) need sometimes is a little #encouragement and educational tips. Why not encourage someone today? And don’t forget to #encourage and #educate yourself as well. Be ever-blooming! 🌹🌞
