Hi Tish,
Sadly I don't know Brisbane nurseries at all. I am sure there are other members on here though that live in Brisbane, or at least close by, who can offer some help. I seem to remember seeing a thread with nurseries listed on the forum somewhere. Simon, can you provide the link please?

You can see it in the forums list under the links section but they are mail order nuseries..there has not been a thread here about general nurseries. 'm afraid I'm not much help on this one.

Hi Trish, Tamara and all the other new members here. Its really great to see, and so many Queenslanders !
I wanted to suggest a beautiful climber for you that grows luxouriosly in Sydney and it may do in Queensland, you will have to ask Balinbear, who is Garry. The rose is Larmaque and it is a white Noisette.
I would never put woodchips on my garden as they take too long to breakdown and take from your garden instead of giving anything good to the roses. I think if you do use woodchips you have to feed with artificial fertilisers. I am not a expert though. A big public rose garden near Melbourne has woodchips around its roses.
You wouldn't want the woodchips falling in your pool eigther. Meryl in Sydney has a lovely garden around her pool, she may have some advice for you. Meryl has the Larmaque I saw growing with such huge, beautiful blooms.
I have around 900 different roses and I don't do anything with them except plant them, water ( luckily we have had a few good years of rain to make waterings so rare it can be listed on one hand, maybe only three times. Although during the dry years it was a very different story ), mulch with grass I pull out around them ( I use to collect Lucerne to mulch ). Over ten years ago I used Seasol and Charlie Carp in a earlier garden but I haven't in this garden.
There are a few roses here not as good as they should be. Maybe all the blooms would be huger etc. with some potash and natural fertiliser but I never have the money to buy them as I have spent my money buying more roses each year in Winter through the mail from Mistydowns and Treloars, also Ross Roses previous years. Ross Roses have the best display garden if you are every visiting Adelaide.
I do have very good soil beside a creek to create the rose garden I planed to make, and despite the Kangaroos and the Wallabies in the National Park ( which was a state forest when we moved here ) it has eventually thrived.
Good luck with growing your roses, its a great hobby !

Yep Larmaque grows well up here as well. If you are after a bit of a yellow (pale) Rev d'Or is another Noisette that thrives up here or its sport
Duchesse d'Auerstad​t if you want more yellow.

We have bit of a gallery that shows a lot of our roses to see what we have had success with.

We have just updated it and will be putting a few more of this years new plants on it as the flower.

Tish, we(David and Carole) are going over to Karen's(rosemeadows) next weekend, weather permitting. I will take as many photos of Karen's roses as possible and place them on here by Monday night, hopefully.

Trish, my camera or computer decied it wasn't going to down load any photos for me, just when I started wanting to post photos here. Will have to get it looked at.
That would be great David. This week I will have to get the stock whip out on myself to weed and mow.

I hope to have it worked out in a few days.
I had Angel Face in a earlier garden and it was very nice. Now I have a new Angel Face and its a climbing one this time.

Oh nice! I am trying to find a good place that sells potted roses in Brisbane. Most places are so far out of Brisbane, and the ones I bought online are all the wrong ones Sad

I buy my roses in winter through the mail, barerooted, which is cheaper and you can choose from hundreds of roses.

That's what I did last winter and I got some of the wrong colours Sad So I'm really hesitant to buy anything that I haven't seen flowers on.
However, I have just emailed Treloar as to why my Abracadabra is pink
