Bare root roses make their debut with the anticipated winter storm this weekend, and are available through February. Roses require a period of dormancy and during this time are sold sans roots or bare root. Because these plants require less care and space, your favorite nursery will offer their largest rose selection of the year. Purchase bare root plants from a reputable nursery. Plants are rated according to standards established by the American Assn. of Nurserymen, with each grade designated by a number — 1, 1 ½ and 2. No. 1 grade are the best, generally the only grade you will find at a nursery.

THE GARDEN FANATIC "There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose ..." -- HENRI MATISSE "Your next-door neighbour ... is [about] roses that are better than yours." -- G. K. CHESTERTON The Greek poet, Sappho, described the rose as the "queen of flowers" nearly 2,600 years ago. To her east, Confucius noted the exquisite rose gardens of the Imperial Palace. Today's roses owe their heritage to these forebears, mostly five-petaled native roses of the northern latitudes.

"If winter comes, can spring be far behind?" -- Percy Bysshe Shelley "To be interested in the changing seasons is... a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring." -- George Santayana The calendar indicates that we still have five weeks to wait until the official beginning of spring (we have completed 56 days of winter as of today). Subtle signs of the change in the seasons are appearing throughout town. Deciduous trees, like the sycamore and crape myrtle, are beginning to bud under cloudless, blue skies, and Catharine's Mutabilis rose has already begun to display its bountiful blooms.

It is nearing the end of winter and words like dormant spray and bare root roses return to the horticultural lexicon until next year. Fertilize everything ... shrubs, trees, perennials and the lawn.

“A bargain is in its very essence a hostile transaction ...” — Lord Byron Although I freely dispense advice weekly in this column, I also have the pleasure to visit gardens and dispense advice professionally. As a businessman, I hope that Laguna gardeners will support the local nurseries and businesses. As a pragmatist I am aware that many shoppers are influenced by cost and believe that bigger (either a city or building) will offer a better price.
