Hi, this is Jim Tarr with Glover Nursery. Today, we'll be learning about how to plant a circle rose flower bed. Once you've picked out good quality roses, go ahead and pick out the variety of roses you want. These happen to be a ground cover rose but you can choose from hybrid teas which have the big flowers, one per stem. You can do a Floribunda type which these would be considered. They have multiple flowers per stem or you could do a Grandiflora which is kind of a combination. They have multiple flowers per stem but long cutting stems. We've made this flower bed here, is a minimum of three feet across. Now if you wanted to you could make this any dimension you wanted to. We're going to do it three foot because we're only going to have one rose around here. So we'll do a grouping of roses and we want to do those about 30 to 36 inches apart. Each of these dots will represent a rose. Since this will be a fairly formal garden, I think we should stick with one variety of rose to the center and make major color impact. We'll choose a rose that blooms repeatedly throughout the Summer. Let's do something neutral like Iceberg, that's a white one that will bloom off and on all Summer long. It happens to be a Floribunda and out on the outside edges of our paths let's do our hybrid teas. We'll do four in each quadrant. This would give us a total of 16 roses on the outside. You can increase this amount just by going back another 30 inches and putting another staggered row in if you would like. For right now since we're going to do a fairly small one for the average homeowner, I think maybe 16 is a good place to start. This was Jim Tarr, and today we've learned about a circle rose flower bed.
