June roses at the BBG.
From my interview for ShelterPop with Sarah Owens, who curates the Cranford Rose Garden at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden...
In what USDA zone were you born?
I grew up in the same zone (as the BBG) - 7 - in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. But it would warm up two to three weeks earlier than in New York and stay warm for two or three weeks longer in autumn.
What is your favourite garden chore?
What is your least favourite garden chore?
Using blowers and other gas powered machines.
Where would you like to garden?
I would love to garden in the Mediterranean or really anywhere with a milder winter.
