Interesting post. It's good to have some deeper thoughts sometimes here on the forum
Roses are not for me. If I could grow them WELL then I am sure I would enjoy them with a passion. However, over the years I have been surprised by people who seemingly are not "gardeners" or have little theoretical knowledge of the subject who simply take cuttings and "stick" them in the ground at almost any time of year with great success.
Sometimes we over think pruning, propagation,planting techniques, feeding etc. yet plants offen don't want us to mollycoddle them. We....I guess I for one......strive for the perfect plant but nature isnt like that
