Last September I did a major revamping of the Arbor garden as some of you might recall. This involved alot of moving of existing plantings from other beds and from within this bed. “Nelly Moser’ was one of the major moves I made and was curious to see if she survived her transplanting into a new location. Previously she was growing on the arch at the entry to this garden with a Bonita Rose as a companion. But I decided to plant another rose in that location and moved her to the back of the garden on a new trellis I received as a birthday gift. Well as you can see in the above photo, not only did she survive the move but is growing like a fiend at the moment. Hopefully the bamboo stakes I placed at the base of the trellis help guide her to grow up & not all over the garden. She is full of large buds right now too! I’m thinking she likes her new home, huh? In front of her is some existing Alliums (I think white mountain bells) that should provide some much needed shade for her roots. To the left is a unknown red rose that was a pass-a-long from my grandmother’s garden years ago. It gets quite tall too so against this back fence was a good area for it as well. Roses & Clematis make good companions in the garden in my opinion. It shouldn’t be much longer and I’ll be enjoying those large pretty blooms again.
