    That’s an impressive list of roses! What has your experience been with “Stanwell Perpetual” and “Felicite Parmentier”? Those are two I’d love to grow here in Keski-Suomi but have been unsure of their ability to overwinter. Would you mind sharing how you overwinter your roses? Thanks!

    • Hello Heidi,
      Thank you for visiting our site!
      Stanwell Perpetual and Felicitie parmentier are both new arrivals this spring. I am confident they will perform well here and look forward to their contribution among the collection we’ve assembled.
      Despite a preponderance of English roses from my initial years of building the collection, we’ve since added several cold hardy rose species. Of them are several among the Canadian Series along with other Scandinavian varieties which have taken our interest.
      We don’t do much regarding overwintering, except in a few instances we took some extra precautions last year. Using heavy winter gardening fabric, we bundled several items throughout the garden just to be on the safe side.
      As for roses, all have survived through at least one winter, several dozen roses have been here more than 2 winters already.
      On the whole, we’ve been very fortunate. We have a very slim rate of failure, and that’s due mostly to choosing specimens which are climatically appropriate to our region.
      We’ll be participating in Avoimet Puutarha this July. Should you wish to take a look around, you’ll be able to do so then. Tervetuloa!
      -Kathryn
