my name is Joana I live and Work in the uk but am originally from Portugal. Last weekend my home town (oliveira do hospital) devastated by fires. It was the worst affected County with 95% of our Greenland lost in just a few hours.
My parents and many friends gardens burned completely and fortunately the house was spared after much fire Fighting that night.
My mother is devastated with Her black garden. I’m keen to start working on it and friends/neighbours/town gardens. My parents and friends were very proud of their rose gardens, with centenary roses and some bought at harlow Carr castle Howard and other places around Europe.
i wonder if you can advise me on whether roses survive fire and how can I look for signs of life? Should I remove them and start over?
your advice will be much appreciated. Although we currently focus on keeping the county’s people fed and safe I feel this will help with healing from the very traumatic experience they lived through.
