Upcoming Rose Reviews, here's the list

Updated: Oct 8, 2023

It has been a LONG time since I did my last rose review. I have to admit that it feels dreadful at times to prepare a blog post although I really enjoy sharing them with you. Resizing photos, doing in-depth review, and preparing each blog post take a long time to do especially when I want to make it very informative/helpful for people wanting to grow roses in Houston.

A few years ago, I was desparately searching for this kind of info, but couldn't find people around Houston sharing, especially on the varieties tha I wanted to grow. So here I am sharing what I have and know.

The good thing is - roses have more time to grow while I have more time to observe. If you recall, my intent is to wait until at least one year to evaluate and share my thoughts on roses. Judging them too early won't be fair. Each year, I'll try to do an update on the ones previously reviewed so you can see the comparison from year 1, year 2 and year 3.
