Re: Rosa 'Paul's > now ZD

You're preaching to the choir on that Melody.  That's why I was concerned.
Everything in that garden is watered from a 5 foot high sprinkler shooting
out over it all.  I remember a couple of years back when I was doing
something in an adjacent garden at 6pm.  Someone from that garden drove in
and asked me when her sprinkler had been shut off.  She had turned it on at
7am and was just now coming back to turn it off.  ( Someone had shut it off
around noon  noticing it wasn't being tended to).  I don't know what their
current schedule is, but it's probably too much water on the rose leaves.
