Today we chat about GROWING ROSES SUSTAINABLY. And we have the perfect person for this topic --PAT SHANLEY, former President of the American Rose Society.
Pat helped to write the book on this subject --- as the co-editor and a contributing author of the book titled, “The Sustainable Rose Garden - A Reader in Rose Culture.”
If you have ever seen a picture of Pat's garden you will know it to be one of the most beautiful private gardens - a garden where she grows approximately 250 roses using no-spray, sustainable practices.
