Thanks to many of you trees are being planted by Monrovia to benefit our planet. I thank you, Monrovia thanks you and the whole world thanks you!
If you haven’t gotten in on the #PlantItForward fun, good deed and fabulous give away already NOW is the time.
We have until April 30th to get the job done.
The Plant It Forward campaign is an initiative by Monrovia and the organization Plants for the Planet to have one trillion trees planted to fight climate change. To learn more about #PlantItForward click HERE.
Here is how you can help:
~ plant something, anything
~ snap a photos and post it with the hashtag #PlantItForward on Instagram or Twitter
~ tag 3 friends to do the same.
So easy – so worthwhile!
If you are a gardener you’ll be planting anyway. If you are not a gardener yet, now is the time to get started!
I have a special gift for 5 of my readers who #PlantItForward and Monrovia has a tremendous give away too.
Read on for the details.
As I mentioned, you can plant anything, but I do have a suggestion …
Try a Lady Banks climbing rose ! You will be glad you did.
I did and I am thrilled with this vigorous climber with the dainty clusters of blooms. So much so I just ordered 2 more.
Lady Banks, Rosa Banksiae, does best in zones 6 – 9, loves full sun to partial shade and is drought tolerant.
This climber grows almost before your eyes topping out at between 20 – 30 feet. The width of the plant is about 5 feet and the roses themselves are 1.5 inches in clusters.
White & yellow blooms on dark green leathery foliage. Evergreen in mild winter areas and thornless, this rose is a perfect choice to cover a fence, arbor, shed or anything that will give it a bit of support.
In spring to early summer your Lady will explode with with clusters of lightly fragrant romantic flowers. This rose flowers only once per season, but the bloom time is long.
After all the blooms fade, prune the new growth only as it grows on old growth stems.
As I mentioned, for Plant It Forward you can plant anything, but if you are so inclined do try a Lady Banks rose or two!
