Big Boy Baxter
The roses are progressing along beautifully! The spider mites are all cleared up, and everyone is back on track. Here is a new picture of Baxter followed by his previous pictures. He really has filled out a lot, and his branches are a lot thicker and stronger.
I am very optimistic that all the Knockout Roses will survive. I was worried for a while though, because they were just so small when I received them. I couldn't imagine that a first-time gardener like me could possibly keep them alive to maturity, but all it took was learning how much water they required and a weekly application of rose spray.
