My William Baffin roses are thriving this year. Far Guy cut them way back in the early spring.
This is the only rose of the Explorer Series that was developed at the Morden Research Station in Morden Manitoba. I understand that even if they no longer research roses that they have display gardens. William Baffin is a wonderful rose, he is kinda a climber, he will climb to about twelve feet. Mine are not nearly that tall because I have this pipe dream about them climbing up the metal wagon wheels. I think they get too warm next to the metal, and their growth is slowed.
I could move the roses, or I could give up on the metal wheels..or maybe I could try some extra water and some fertilizer..I hope they don’t croak from some attention:)
