    over the winter my moms roses picked up some kind a mold which killed them off. Is it worth replanting, or will the mold just return, it looked different than the usual snow mold we get.

    Roses just dsont to grow up here well, its to cold for too long, so they usualy freeze to death over the winter. But my dad spent two day ripping out the roots of nice hearty flowering bush so my mom could grow roses

    oh where just starting to plant up here, The last heavy frosts usually end by early to mid may. But we get crazy weather so you never know, It snowed in early august one year. That totally destroyed my moms flower garden, It was a heavy wet snow that crushed everything,

    You know... I've always neglected my roses and have never had a problem with them... I don't fret over them, I don't treat them, I don't feed them special food, I don't prune them, but once a year... Basically, I ignore them and they thrive...

    I've grown roses in Northern California, Central California and Southwest Pennsylvania.... I'm not sure where you are...

    Maybe I've just been lucky... I dunno...

    Right now Im about a 1000km, or 600miles north of the Montana/Canada boarder, in a small town called Fort Mcmurray

    Usually Im in in Edmonton Alberta though, wich is about 400miles north of hte
    of US boarder

    northern california is like going to the tropics for me.

    Well, the farthest north I ever lived was in Caribou, Maine... So, I'm afraid I can't give you any advice... :( Sorry...

    with that kind of weather it will be hard to grow anything :(

    the most important thing would be protection during the winter but if that means you have to keep them covered for most of the year i doubt it would be worth the risk of having to start over every few years..

    you might want to check this guys site, he's growing roses in Ontario and has an interesting method to get them trough the winter :)
