Cracks' introduction.

Post by Cracks on 15th January 2011, 21:28

Hello forum members i am Cracks. i have been a rose enthusiast for many years thanks to the influence of my late Nana. She had hundreds of roses on her poultry farm at Hampton in Victoria and was a real green thumb. I spent many a day out in the garden with her pruning roses and weeding etc. When she passed away i was asked if i would like the roses, of course i said yes, however i had no idea how i was going to move them to my house. So started the research, planning and preparing where i was going to put them, the arguements and "land rights "discussion with the wife who had a 100%indigenous native garden,lol. Once i had my patch sorted i planted 2 cuttings i had from her roses and i was ready for the others. I ended up digging out 11 roses , the method i used was waiting till winter,digging them out with soil attached about 18inches accross then wrapping in hessian bags and loading into a trailer then wetting them. This was a massive job lol,but i really enjoyed it. Then made my journey over the west gate bridge back to my place and loaded them into a wheel barrow and transported to the back garden and wetted again. The next day i was out early and one by one dropped them in their pre dug holes and covered them over with soil from Hampton and of course the free chook manure . I found it challenging to sit them in the holes and then turn them to envisage which would be the best way for them to face, but im happy with the results.
I have since found nanas handwritten notes on her planting and what they were called. There is Mr Lincoln, a dark rich red. Fragrant cloud, Im guessing this one is a near white with amazing perfume. Night Flight, a pale mauve with limited flowers. Mister Peter Frankenfeld, not sure yet which ones this is.Diamond Jubilee, not sure yet. Dulce Vita which is a lovely two tone flower. and Red gold, which is a small flower two toned yellow gold and orange red lol.
Anyways i will try to upload some pics in the future and hope to chat to felloe members regards Cracks

Cracks, you have come to a great place to learn about roses, share your interests, add your two bobs worth and meet some interesting people, a warm welcome from me, David(roseman). We have some great members from Victoria, which in time you will come across, it does not matter that they are south of the border and sometimes are referred to as Mexican's, they laugh, have a great day. roflmao

Anyone can correct me "but" I think Mr L is not Mr L. I think it should be darker and have more petals. Are all the plants at nans house, modern roses or is there some old roses amongst them

Hard to tell really, David. The colour has been affected by the flash. Try taking one without the flash in the evening to get a better idea of the real colour.

What kind of a plant is 'Night Flight' (health wise)?

Its a very small bush and gets limited heads per season, otherwise i think its in good health, the Mr lincoln has had some very dark coloured flowers and then some much lighter ones, it may even be one main stem is dark and one is lighter but not entirely sure of this yet. Mr Lincoln was her pride and joy.
So it states that these are all hybrid teas, what does this mean?

There are many different groups of roses that are distinguished by things like physical features and breeding. Hybrid Teas is a term used to describe a group of roses that were initially bred by crossing a group called Teas with roses like Hybrid Perpetuals. The resulting roses were not Teas but were hybrids of them so they became Hybrid Teas. Most modern roses sold in nurseries are this kind of rose. Once you start getting into it more you will find specialist rose nurseries sell all kinds of roses from species roses to Teas, China Roses, Noisettes, Hybrid Musks, and the list goes on. These are all excellent garden plants with much to offer.

Nice photos.
Two bits of useless information for the day; Vol de Nuit was named for a novel by the chap who wrote The Little Prince. It's about the thoughts of a mail pilot in Africa who is heading towards a storm when low on fuel (I think - it's some years since I read it), and doesn't arrive.
Fragrant Cloud is apparently an uncomplimentary expression in German, being roughly equivalent to bs.
