Everything looks great Tom! What kind of gardenia is that? Is that new, or did it live over winter in the ground? That rose looks awesome. I have resorted to only Knockouts because they are the easiest; I have not had good luck gardening organically with roses. I love scented anything, so that would be awesome. I gave away 2 scented roses because I couldn't get them to bloom or refrain from getting eaten so badly they looked awful. I gave them to my parents who will spray any chemical they can get their hands on as long as it "works"!
