There is something similar on the video tapes I use. There is a slide on the side to lock it and stop it being taped over.

Cut roses growing!

Cut the flower head off, and plant the rooted cutting in some gritty soil outside.

If you plant it where you want the final plant, you won't have to move it.

My next door neighbour can only see blue flowers. I made him a list and the year I successfully raised a load of blue poppy  plants, I gave him half a dozen. They were planted in a group in shaded soil enriched with lots of horse manure. When they flowered , he bought me a bottle of champagne.

His blue poppies did better than mine. Must have been the horse poo.

With five acres ,  see if you can obtain a copy of  "the self sufficient gardener' by John Seymour. You should be able to get it from amazon.

It sounds like you should be able to grow a lot more than we can in England.

Good Luck. I hope you achieve your dream.
