In my Master Gardener Intern Class on propagation held on March 7, I acquired a rose, a Red Cascade.
I brought it home and set it outside in a protected shady spot. The instructions were to leave it in the “greenhouse” until September, occasionally checking on it to see if it needed added moisture. By mid-April, the leaves were touching the sides of the pop bottle “greenhouse,” so I removed it. It still sat outside in a shaded spot, protected from the wind. Occasionally I’d add some water to the soil.
In May it had a blossom and I put it into a bigger container. I also left it in the shady spot.
In early June I set it out where it would get more sunshine and was no longer protected from the wind. This week I moved it into the fairy garden and set up the trellis behind it to climb on.
