New Support For My Rose Bush

'Carefree Marvel' shrub rose started as a small bare root in my garden. It is huge now.

It crowds  its neighbors and  blocks  the garden path.

I knew it needed a good support. 

One of the spring windstorms provided the material, madrona's trunk.

Love it!

  1. A unique and very attractive support, i like it.

  2. Very nice!!! Love the monarda and poppies interlaced with the rose.

  3. I love it. That is very creative and unique. Thanks for sharing such a good idea.

  4. Those poppies look great! What a rosebush!

  5. What a fabulous idea! I love it... :0)

  6. Carefree Marvel, a beautiful rose and also the neigbours Monardas are showy. A good and also nice looking idea to use these trunks to keep the rose of the path.

  7. Very creative! I love the rustic look, it blends in without detracting from the rose it's holding up. I can't believe how much is blooming in your garden!

  8. Smart! And I love the look of it, too.

  9. What a marvelous rose! I have a 'Carefree Wonder' but it doesn't look nearly as happy as yours. Love the support system you devised.

  10. Eco-friendly and frugal support. I like it.

  11. I love the natural look of this support always better than metal if you can do it.


  12. Wonderful and clever! What a great idea! I may have to borrow it. :o)

  13. Wow, your roses and Monardo are doing so well, fantastic September colour.
    Just discovered you today and am jumping aboard your blog.

  14. That's the perfect solution! I've always admired trellises, chairs and such that are made with twigs and branches.

  15. I like this support. Great job, Tanya !

  16. Tanya, I have the same problem times 4. How did you get the stakes to stay in the ground through the rain and wind?

  17. Aleese, we don't have bad winds... Good luck with your roses!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
