Judy Fischer is one of our oldest miniature roses and one
of our favorites. It has proven to be a tough shrub that has taken
drought, sheering by deer and lots of sun.
Like all roses, miniature roses are sun loving and fairly
drought resistant. Plant in well drained soil and fertilize with an organic fertilizer
in the spring. Dead canes can be pruned anytime but most pruning
occurs in the fall when we shape the plant to the desirable height and
width. All rose petals are
edible, if grown organically, and make attractive garnishes for salads.
They can be added after cooking to almost any dish. Whole buds can be
used to decorate cakes or other confections. Before using any flower in
food, a sample flower should be pulled apart and inspected for insects.
Judy Fischer Miniature Rose has perfectly shaped buds
that are ideal for drying or using in fresh crafts like
our fresh Herbal Wreath.
Judy Fischer is one of the six plants chosen to be in our
Crafter's Herb Garden for Zones
