    Jill,
    I very much enjoyed your piece on ramblings up north near Chico (my alma mater). Would you consider doing an edited version of Part One, focusing only on the cemeteries and the roses for the November issue of ROSE LETTER? Or I could do the editing, if you prefer. I’d also like to use perhaps three of the photos. Let me know.

    Hello I just wanted to let you know we did a little write up on your PVC Greenhouse on the MakerStage website, we also used one of your images to show what it looked like. If you would like us to take the photo down just let me know and I will do it as soon as I hear from you.

    Hello everyone, while I enjoyed these articles and hope to utilize the information someday, I’m wrestling with a huge Morning Glory (MG’s) invasion among my roses. Don’t like to use chemicals and I’m considering removing the roses (and everything else) from my garden and cover with blackout materials for a year or so to completely eliminate them. Does anyone have a tried and true method of eradicating MG another way and that won’t ruin the roses? If I do move them, do I have to remove all the soil around the roots to assure the MG’s don’t tag along? I really don’t want to do anymore than I have to as I’m running low on time, money, patience and energy.Please help! Marie

      This isn’t a forum, and I’m the only “everybody”, but I’ll try to answer your question. What I think you have is bindweed. White flowers that look like morning glory, but very invasive and hard to get rid of. If you do what you’re thinking of doing, yes, get the dirt off the roots of the plants you are trying to save before you pot them up. You can kill bindweed with roundup, but it’s hard to protect your roses if you do. Some people paint it on the leaves of the bindweed, which works well, but is tedious. I’d recommend pulling out as much of it as you can, wait for it to resprout, then paint the new leaves with roundup whenever you see them. They can come back for several years, so it requires diligence. Good luck.
