Roses and strong winds

Post by AutumnDamask on 9th August 2011, 14:10

Am just planting out some of my 2011 purchases and am wondering if I have chosen the correct location for some of them...

How do Tea roses handle a southerly gale?! I know the DAs Tess, Pegasus and Glamis Castle are ok on that side of our house but I wondered if the Teas (Mme Lombard to be precise) would be ok with it??

The wind hasn't been as bad as it was several years ago and the windbreaks are coming along but thought it best to check. scratch

And I've got inside and checked my list/plan. And I've planted Summer Song in the wrong place. *facepalm* I think I'll leave it!

(My plan to have an Iceberg-free zone has been foiled by being sent Iceberg as a Free Rose.... Very Sad )


PS. We need a smiley for *facepalm* or *headdesk* LOL
Duh

My Teas are growing where they cop the full brunt of the Roaring 40s and do ok.

:windy:


Plant them below the graft so they get more support... that way the plant stem doesn't act like a lever that the wind can use to shake the plant loose every time it blows.

P.S. we do have a face palm smiley Duh

Thanks for that Simon. I thought I'd seen you mention the Roaring 40s. Sometimes I think we get it in a funnel straight from you down there in Tas...!! 2006-07 were really bad. Sad (lesson learned = we can't grow magnolia yet. Very Sad )

You'd have to in Tasmania. It grows wild down there. Nearly as bad as 'Rosa Canina'

We drove through one of the towns down the east coast and they were growing up through the bitumen. Well maybe not that bad but every yard had one and some of these were just growing in the middle of a lawn.

I reckon that it won't be long until its declared an environmental weed.
