We were discussing Roses on the sweet sixteen swap and I thought I'd bring it down here.

Rebecca, here is a good FAQ page about roses. It has a que/ans about deer eating them. And a que/ans about growing container roses on the patio. It's also got some lovely photos of the roses they sell.

http://www.springvalleyroses.com/learn/faq.html 

And here's a site that has some beautiful roses

http://www.oldheirloomroses.com/Rugosa.htm  

Another good article here. Rugosa's produce big, hips that are good and healthy to eat. But animals like them too. So if you deadhead, then the hips wont grow and that might help. Also picking out the thorniest ones might help. Rugosa's are very thorny.

http://www.rosemagazine.com/articles04/rugosa_roses/ 

This last page has a great article on Old Roses (look on the lefthand side of the screen). The Alba rose is also very hardy and says it's pest resistant.

(I'm sorry my links are not clickable. I put a space after them like Jess said, they just aren't working!  )

Dorian, do you right click on the address bar of the page you want the link to? I open the page of the website in question, right click, click on COPY, go back to the page I want to post it on, make sure the cursor is where I want it, then hit Shift and Insert. Give that a try (and yes, there should always be a space before and after the link. For example, http://www.thequiltandneedle.com/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=... That's this current page.

Thank you Jami for posting those as links!

Hey, smarty pants , you did it!! Knew you could! It's the little things we sometimes forget that get us! LOL

Too bad Rugosas can't grow here - too cold! I need to look for ones produced out of Morden, Manitoba - they are bred for our cold - cold???try frigid! - winters. Pity, 'cause I LOVE the old fashioned roses.
