Friends who come to your rescue are wonderful, but smart friends who know everything about roses are even more wonderful. My smart friends are on the Antique Roses Forum on the GardenWeb. I ran screaming to them this evening when I saw my 'Climbing Clotilde Soupert' invested with something!
Go here to see my cry for help and the instant aid offered by these precious rosarians. Everything I know and a lot of who I am is thanks to them.
