My gardenias were plagued by white flies. The flies spread to my iris. I was totally frustrated. I put a spray bottle on my hose and soaked them with a dish soap solution. When the white flies quit swarming, I rinsed the bushes completely with fresh water. This was two weeks ago; the plants did not die. In fact, they seem to be happy and filled with buds and flowers. I am not a horticulturist; i am just a home gardener.

I'm in love with the Hybrid Tea 'Sugar Moon', not only for its beauty but for it's powerful sweet scent. Today in Zone 7a.

I had a Floribundas or Grandiflora (?) that bloomed all summer with dozens of soft red roses. I liked its protected location planted in sandy soil on a hill with good drainage. I never did anything to it! I moved to Florida but recently have a place in Northern Ohio again and I wish I could find that rosebush again for my new yard!
