My vegetable gardening escapes don't usually go as planned but you know what I can grow?
When I was younger my mom took me to Styers WAY before it turned into Terrain at Styers and bought me a rose bush with coral roses. Bee-utiful. And the guy told us the key to keeping your bush blooming all summer (that only sounds a little dirty): trimming them after they bloom.
See the reddish stuffs up there and below? That happens after a good snipitty-snip.
After a bloom when the flower has lost its luster or if you want to take them inside to enjoy 'em, find a place on the stem where there are five leaves on one shoot and slice it up right by it, leaving the five leaves- see above- some leaf clusters have three, some five- snip before the five.
This encourages more growth and just days later, more buds will be a-growin'.
