Rose plantings

Post by rosemeadow on 8th August 2011, 07:27

About a week ago I finished planting 86 new Heritage roses from Mistydowns. It took me nearly a week to plant them. They each got a watering can of water to wash them in, also a watering can in the hole prior to digging the holes deeper if the ground in that spot was a bit dry as I plant the graft below the soil. Now we have had 21 mls of rain yesterday. So that was well timed ! We really needed the rain too as our rain water tank was almost dry.
About the same amount of modern roses from Treloars come latter in this month.

Eeep. That's busy. My small lot from Mistydowns should arrive today. Planting them will be easy.... the dozen or so trees I still need to plant are trickier - they need alpaca-proof guards, not just bunny-proof ones.
No doubt the Treloar order will arrive this week too. *g*
Now all I have to do is construct an arch .... Wink

Hi Autumn Damask. I am lucky because I have very deep soil, makes digging holes very easy. Also the excitement of having them propelled me along.
What kind of trees are you planting ? What are you making your arch out of ? I need to make a few more steel mesh ones when I have the money to buy some more sheets of it. I have three weeper stands to get made before my Treloar's order gets here.

Hehe The arch will be simple steel mesh.

And my Treloars order arrived today.. with the Mistydowns one.

The holes aren't hard to dig. Just my back doesn't like the digging. :p And I am trying harder to dig better holes than in the past!

The trees are some Red Oaks, Turkish Oak, English elm, Plane tree, and a few for the garden like Silver Birch, a Dogwood... and something else I can't remember!!

Rosalie, they sound like a good lot of trees.
Simon I am glad Misty Downs can post you roses, in case I do move to Tasmania in the far future.
How much can you grow Tea roses in Tasmania, Simon ?

I got an email today saying it had been sent today - guess they read the forum too Wink

Hi Karen Mexican Wave

I have these teas, climbing teas, not-really-teas;

'Lorraine Lee' (bush form), 'MME Joseph Schwartz', 'Comtesse de Labarthe' (Dave, pretty much all the cuttings of 'CdL' took and so did all the cuttings of 'M. Tillier' and 'Carabella'), 'M. Tillier', 'Marie Van Houte', 'St Francis Xavier', 'Francis Dubreuil' (NOT), 'Souv. de MME Leonie Veinnot', 'MME Lambard', 'Adam', 'Climbing Devoniensis', 'Safrano', one that I think is either 'Perles des Jardins' or 'Étoile de Lyon', and 'MME Antione Mari'. 'Lady Huntingfield' grows like a Tea here too so I include her among them and I have 'Nancy Hayward' and R. gigantea which are similar to the Teas in preferences. 'Nancy Hayward' grows very well down here.

On the whole they grow ok. They are certainly not evergreen here as they are elsewhere and they don't flower all winter. The grow very slowly and to nothing like the size they do on the mainland. They are, in general, pretty healthy but some tend to spot quite badly here as well as mildew a bit. I have a mix of own-root and grafted ones and the own-root ones definately do better down here for some reason.

Our cold nights and warm days have brought the mildew on early. Mme Lambard, Beauty of Glenhurst and Peace 1902 (but strangly not G Namonad) seem to be the worst affected

We missed it last year with all the rain we got. We are trying to keep it in check by hosing it so we will see how we go.
