    Hail Folks,

    I am seeking suggestions for best ways to display my collection of Roses (AoS, Whispering, etc).

    I have between 200 and 250 of em and wish to display them in a Castle.

    Thx for all input.

    I put up the vines and raise roses throughout them.

    also i use the old potted plants, the ones without blooms.
    I put a rose on it it looks like a potted rose. <---- Those being my prize roses
    (like my wispering rose from The Town Watch)

    My greatest challenge may also come in where to place them. Scattered throughout the Castle as opposed to all in one area such as the Roof. Alas, historically my Roof has been used for a Replica of my Beloved Trinsic.

    *walks off to ponder*

    Well, the ultimate decision is yours. A couple options might be: lining all the wall crests with roses if you really want to spread them all out, or you could design a 'romantic sitting area' with roses everywhere(using all kinds of plants and topping them with roses with elven benches for sitting(the main castle roof may be a good location because of the size and open air)).

    Hmm, this just came to mind...
    Rose Hedges: on a hedge scatter vibrant red yarn balls along up the side of the hedge then top it off with a wispering rose. I haven't tried that, but it might be worth trying to see how it turns out. Hey, if it doesn't look good, the fire me! I can find another job! :pancakes:

    I would use vines and hedges then place the rose throuout to create a rose hedge

    Or even a Roof Top Rose Hedge Maze

    Humm just gave myself a nice idea thanks.

    Here are 3 that I have on display...

    The first is just on a simple vase made via glassblowing.

    The second is on one of the old potted plants like Cadsuane Sedai mentioned.

    The third (my personal favorite) is on top of a dirt pile (from Oaks) on top of a kettle.
