Hello Charlotte,

Thank you for all the super information you have shared. I’ve bookmarked your site for constant refreshers.

Charlotte, to my surprise I am having a devil of a time finding the ‘right’ edger i.e. 4’ tall with an edge that can be sharpened. I have two lovely 15 year old ones, and want two more. Have looked high and low on line and in the stores in my home town of Ottawa. I was wondering - do you have any suggestions about where to find such an edger?

It would be lovely to hear from you or one of your team.

I have not been able to find organic roses sold anywhere. Where do you buy them.

You have a couple of options if you can’t find a certified organic rose bush. Start with a conventionally grown rose bush and raise it with organic methods. This is what certified organic farmers do. If they can’t find certified organic perennial planting stock they buy conventional and it is considered organic by certifiers after one year under organic care. The other option is to take cuttings from a friend or neighbor that has an organic garden and raise those cuttings.
