Roses need TLC, too, in the winter

Before making any cuts, get your tools ready; have your shears and loppers oiled, adjusted and sharp! By-pass type shears and loppers are best as they make a clean cut without crushing or bruising canes. A small pruning saw, preferably with fine teeth, is helpful for cutting hefty canes and getting into tight places.Decide the general size and shape you want for your rose; for most types, a plant with four to seven healthy canes in an open, vase-like form that promotes good interior air circulation is ideal. If in doubt about whether to remove a cane, leave it; you can always remove it later in the season.Start with the largest portions of the plant you want to take out — it makes the job go more quickly. Remove at least one-third to one-half of the volume of the plant, particularly the three-Ds — damaged, diseased or dead wood. Cut back to healthy tissue — look for white or cream-colored pith (interior of cane). If you have some old canes (usually grey and shaggy) that aren’t producing much new growth, remove them right down at the base of the plant.Next comes clean up, also known as good hygiene for the garden. This important step will help reduce the potential for pests and disease in the spring. After our fall rains and cool temperatures, plants may shed some, but not all of their leaves; those that remain may be infected with rust and blackspot. To prevent these rose diseases from spreading, as well as removing sites for insect pests to spend the winter, strip remaining foliage from the pruned plant and discard along with stems and canes from the area. Remove all debris from around the base of the plants, and also pull any errant weeds.AdvertisementHow to protect your plants will depend on what Mother Nature does in the coming months. We’re often fooled into thinking that since it is winter, there’s no need to water plants. That’s true if your soil remains moist. Dry, cold and windy weather can suck moisture out of the rose canes leaving them lo... (Marin Independent Journal)

Grammys orders for white roses keep pouring in at local florists

Friday afternoon: a white rose boutonniere. With the music industry’s biggest names set to hit the Grammys red carpet donning the flowers in support of sexual harassment victims Sunday, local city florists were hit with a sudden increase in orders.“We received two orders today of all white rose boutonnieres which we’re delivering for the, rumor has it, for the Grammys,” Rob Palliser, the owner of Scotts Flowers NYC on 37th Street, said. “There has been an uptick.” News of the white rose show of solidarity for the Time’s Up movement began to spread only days before the ceremony was scheduled to hit Madison Square Garden, leaving local florists with little time to prepare. Many said they hadn’t ordered any extra flowers in advance. Palliser said his shop was in the process of filling an order of 20 of the white flowers, priced at $20 each. Projecting the orders will only increase in the final hours leading up to the ceremony, the shop was looking to order more from the 28th Street Local Flower Market come Saturday morning. Richard Sonnick, the owner of Flowers By Richard in Hell’s Kitchen, said the orders were coming in without...

Flowers for Lisa Wires Claiming Crown Jewel

Claiming Crown Jewel at Gulfstream Park Dec. 2. The win capped off a solid day for trainer Jorge Navarro, whose trainee Sharp Azteca earned his first grade 1 victory in the Cigar Mile Handicap Presented by NYRA Bets (G1) about an hour earlier. "Jorge told me the day he claimed him that this was our Claiming Crown horse," owner Jason Provenzano said of the 4-year-old Flower Alley gelding who was claimed for $20,000 at Monmouth Park in July. "This is a dream for me," he added. "The phone hasn't stopped. I got in this game a long time ago. My father was a jockey years ago, he rode down at Bowie, Timonium, Pimlico, Marlboro—tracks that don't even exist anymore, some of them. I fell in love with horses at a young age but I never thought I'd have the money to own them. I got in a good position in my life and we started claiming horses."The 19th running of the Claiming Crown marked opening day of Gulfstream's championship meet, and record handle on the 11-race program was $11.9 million, up 7% from last year when $11.1 million was wagered. Handle in 2015 was $10.3 million. Handle on the Claiming Crown has gone up every year since Gulfstream began hosting the event in 2012.In the 1 1/8-mile Claiming Crown Jewel, Flowers f...

Alamosa Flowers: Berries for wildlife

I’ve been thinking about berries.I have a snowberry shrub (Symphoricarpos albus) that had beautiful white berries until the middle of November. As I walked around my garden today, I realized the snowberry is being taken over by another, more aggressive shrub that I can’t identify in its winter state. I would like the snowberry to thrive so entered a note into my “check it out” list for next spring to remove some of the encroaching shrubs.According to the Wiki website, the common snowberry is an important winter food source for various birds but is considered somewhat poisonous to humans. It is one of the few berry-bearing plants I could find that should work well in the San Luis Valley (SLV). It tolerates sun, shade, heat, cold (down to zone 1), and drought.I’m going to look into getting a coralberry (Symphoricarpos orbiculatus or orbiculatus) shrub. According to the “Sunset Western Garden Book”, it is cold tolerant (down to zone 1or 2) and resembles snowberry, but bears white or pink-tinged flowers that are followed by small purplish red fruit. The Prairie Moon Nursery website says it tolerates medium-dry soil, the flowers provide nectar for bees, and the berries provide winter food for robins. One website says the plant is sometimes referred to as buckbrush since it’s a favorite of white-tailed deer; another says it is deer-resistant! Oh, my!Coralberry suckers and has dense foliage, so I’ll look for a...

Gracie Holway, who hails from Michigan, will dance the Sugar Plum Fairy, among other roles, and Jessica Gadzinski will perform the role of the Arabian Princess and Dew Drop.IPB’s two new soloists are Kelsey Dorr from Lake Forest in Orange County, who among other roles will dance a Rose in Waltz of the Flowers, and Lawrence Chen—a young artist from Chino Hills who is also pursuing a mathematics degree at Pomona College—will be dancing The Nutcracker Prince, the Spanish Soloist, Russian and the Soldier Doll. “We are always excited to share our beautiful production of the Nutcracker with loyal fans and new audiences,” Artistic Director Victoria Koenigs said. “This year we are thrilled to introduce five outstanding new dancers who have just joined the company. You don’t want to miss these inspiring dancers who all bring fresh and unique qualities to their roles.”The Nutcracker was first presented in 1892 at the Maryinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia. The ballet was an adaptation of the 1816 story, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, by E.T.A. Hoffman. The ballet was choreographed by Lev Ivanov with music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Marius Petipa, the reigning choreographer at the Maryinsky, fell ill, so the job passed to Ivanov. Tchaikovsky only reluctantly accepted the commission to compose the score which, when completed, he considered “infinitely worse than Sleeping Beauty.”At the premiere, the ballet was deemed a complete failure. More than 60 years and many productions would pass before The Nutcracker would become a staple of the repertoire in ballet companies around the world and one of the univer...
