When we moved into our house several years ago, we inherited dated wallpaper, rusty lawn furniture, and a dozen roses in containers that have been plagued by black spot and Japanese beetles. I had no qualms about riping out the wallpaper and giving away the lawn furniture. But give up on plants? Never.
Now that I have recently created more garden beds, I'm debating whether I should toss them in the ground. It would use up some of the space and they would probably do better in the ground than in the containers. But then again, why use up valuable garden space with plants I don't even like all that much?
Then just when I was fed up with them, they do something sweet to try to get on my good side; one rose bush just put out a bunch of fragrant beautiful flowers.
