Water-resistant battery and adapter housings. Safe for outdoor use in a covered area.

To prune Joseph's coat climbing roses: leave for two or three years, so as to grow and develop long, sturdy canes. Just keep them in bounds and remove dead or damaged stems the first years. Tie to support with stretchy floral tape. As the rose gets older select more canes to create structure and fill up fence or trellis. Remove other canes at the base of the plant. After you bend and tie the structural canes horizontally new lateral shoots will develop and sprout along the length.

Boxwood is very easy to propagate. In the spring, take stem cuttings, 6 inches in length, and remove the lower inch of leaves. For best effect, group five to seven stems together, as pictured, to resemble an entire plant. Plunge this group into soil that has been amended with copious quantities of peat moss or leaf mold. Pack the soil firmly around the stems. Keep the cuttings moist, and you will have new, rooted plants in about six weeks.
