Re: One project accomplished

Cathy, my late friend Don, who was a rose hybridizer, always planted
his beds with chives.  He claimed they helped resist Japanese 
beetles, crowded out weeds, looked pretty when they bloomed,
could be neatly trimmed with grass shears when the bloom
was past, and were good in vichyssoise.

Indeed! The catalogs are coming in and I can't wait until I have time 
to settle down and peruse them. And, can you knowledgeable ones out 
there recommend some suitable "understory" plants for roses that would 
be hardy to z5? I do not have a rose bed, but scatter them throughout 
the garden.
