A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world -- Leo Buscaglia
This is a well said quote, isn't it? Roses are gorgeous and timeless beauties. To date I can't pinpoint a particular rose or even the colour of a rose that I like most. They are all so pretty!
Roses however are not an easy plant to cultivate especially in our tropical climate that is always humid and hot.
Recently I visited the beautiful rose garden of Rohani Bujang, head of the Honey Bee Rose Club. I saw many thriving roses! All the roses were planted using the organic way.
Read more about her planting methods here.

What I found most interesting was that the soil mix she used i.e. one part compost and another part a blend of the following ingredients (all or part of): perlite, burnt soil, sand, rice hull, black soil and coconut husk.

I have one Othello rose in my garden now. In spite of the heavy downpour in the afternoon these days, I just hope that the soil in the pot is not affected/compacted by the rain and clogged...
What's your favourite rose?
