For those interested in the problem of growing roses in Iceland, here is a link to a very good video hosted by the Icelandic Rose Club.

Agree, excellent historical presentation on the sisu challenges and approach on finding at least the right “300” … in an unusual climate zone - re: meteorological graph and data. Like how they compared it to other countries’ trend.

Well worth the time to vu and personable hosts. Lots of leads for myself to pursue.

Can’t help looking it as a mirror, good to know see others have challenged the conditions local to then.

I spent the month of July 2001 in Reykjavík on a course. The walk from my lodgings to the university led through a municipal park, and I remember stopping to smell the Rugosas every day!

Some have had trouble viewing the complete video which is nearly 45 minutes long. Here is a zipped version which I have been told does work.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
