Roses clustering, best ever.

Kakdah held the blooming roses close to her nose. She said, her roses bloomed better in Tanah Merah, much bigger and smell sweeter. The extensive pruning prior to the long 7 hour journey from Putrajaya to Tanah Merah must have done the trick. Lot of crushed egg shells, sunnier location and cooler climate encourage the blooming fiesta further.

  1. Lovely to have some rose photos to admire when we are freezing in the snow!

  2. They look beautiful! Put your banana peels under roses too. They love them!

  3. mm, I can almost smell them. Our roses got frosted three weeks ago, so it's all pine trees round here...

  4. They are beauties, aren't they? I can feel the joy kak dah is feeling, just looking at the gorgeous blooms and the buds of more to come. Tanah Merah really did wonders, I kind of knew it will for both of you... yup, people like you deserve it.

  5. What a beautiful pink rose Bangchik. I love the dainty pink and the petals. They look so good to me this time of the year.

  6. Kakdah's roses are happy plants have adjusted so well to the new climate! As usual your photographs are beautiful!

  7. Beautiful roses as sweet as kakdah!
    Maybe Tanah Merah has a better weather for the plants, but i think mainly it's because you're the gardener. Some little secret for you: milk can also be a good fertilizer for your roses, other than eggshells :)

  8. Congratulations! Things are progressing very well for you and your garden. Spiderman, then roses...

  9. Such a beautiful rose Kakdah! Bangchik, this looks and sounds very promising. I am so happy for you and your garden :-D Btw, is Tanah Merah at a higher ground?

  10. Pretty roses Bangchik. Kak Dah has done her magic again for the flowers in your garden! I wish I could be successful with roses and orchids, then I have more blooms in my garden too..

  11. green lane allotments:
    thanks. Roses as always soften hearts... but the whiteness of snow can be soothing too.

    There will soon be banana peel around them. thanks

    Scattered gardener:
    let the plant rest for a while, when snow melts, roses will smile.

    rough rosa:
    Kakdah will have to learn a little bit mpore about roses. What do we do after all the flowers are gone..

    Hocking hills gardener:
    The flowers smell so nice.., according to kakdah. The colour is sweet and petals form well...

  12. Thank you for sharing such beauty with us!

  13. Such a pretty blooms! A pleasant surprise for Kak Dah. The roses definitely love Tanah Merah!

  14. They are stunning, such a lovely shade of pink. Made even nicer by the gloomy snowy weather we have here.

    Plants adjusted well, but we need longer time to adjust.

    michelle suggested banana peels, now milk is another adds on. thanks.

    ~Open Kitchen Concept
    Thanks, now i wonder what will happen after the first burst of blooms. Will the plant rest or go for more.

    The progress is there.., slow but sure.

    Tanah Merah being further inland, therefore a lot higher than Kota Bharu.

    Take new approach with roses... heavy pruning for example and see what will happen..
