Help, garden redo need to move irises and roses
I have no gardening skills whatsoever! However, the 1950's ranch my husband and I bought nearly two years ago once had extensive gardens that have since fallen into disrepair. The area I am planning on re-doing is about 16'x34' with alot of stone work and an old fountain/pond. There are roses and irises for sure...not sure what any of the other plants might be or if they are just weeds. I am looking for some ideas on what zone 6-7 plants/shrubs/flowers to use in this space, especially easy care ones. Also, I need to know what I should do with the rose bushes and the irises while I tear the beds apart. Should I wait until the irises bloom or take a chance on moving them now before it gets frightfully hot? Thanks in advance!
