This rose bush was given to us about two weeks after Rachael's passing 4-1-12. My church gave them to us on our doorstep and they were about one foot tall. I think they are in a great spot being placed at the entry to her door. Don't tell anyone this secret but the reason they are so healthy looking and growing so well is because I dug a hole two feet deep and wide and put in a very good potting soil mixed with some of the soil that came out of the hole. This allows the rooting to get a good foothold and really latch themselves in.
