Several years ago, we transplanted several rose bushes into our front yard. We have a live-in contractor (best way to go!) and one of his customers wanted the rose bushes gone. So he brought them home.
Not all of them survived the transplant.
Two years ago, I had the task of trimming them down and when I was done each bush only had 10 to 12 inches left. This year, with the weird spring we had, the roses took their time coming up, but when they did, wow!
Pardon the front steps, they really need to be repainted.
