Hi Tish, have you found a nursery near Bribane to get some roses? My Blackberry Nip is growing strong and about to bloom for me for the first time, Ebb tide seems to be a favourite here on the forum, otherwise Just go with your gut feeling I suppose. I bought Pascali and Bonica this afternoon, so see how they like my garden. Hmmmm

Tish, I have no idea what roses on your list grow best where you live. Gary would be the best person I think to help you.
As for the roses and I dont know how many can aford to buy at the weekend.
These would be my ones.
St. Patrick
Fishermans friend
Brass Band
Ebb Tide
Blackberry Nip.

These are not in the order I would choose but ones I like. If you only get 2 I would get Ebb Tide then Blackberry Nip. They are roses I realy like but have not got yet.
Diferent colour certainly Brass Band or Fishermans friend and St. Patrick would be a good addition.

Hi tambralyngar,
Yes I found a lovely lady who is about 45 minutes drive, but she seems to have most of the ones I want so I will need to be careful to not buy too many Very Happy
The one I really want (Blackberry Nip) she doesn't have Sad
Ebb Tide is first on my list, it looks like such a pretty rose.
Thanks for the info on Red Intuition, I might take that one off my list Smile

Hi Carole,
I definitely want Ebb Tide, but unfortunately she doesn't have Blackberry nip Sad I have been searching for it for ages.

I think I might go with :

Ebb Tide
St. Patrick
Blue For You
Magma
Henri Matisse

As long as I don't see any others that I want, this new rose obsession I have is sending me broke haha

Tish, I can recommend Fisherman's Friend for its beauty and scent. Alas, not a great plant and have to admit that its difficult to get going, but if you persist, the rewards are pleasing. So much so, that it earned a spot in my 2nd garden.

I also have Burgandy Iceberg, a gift from a friend and I love it for its colour. No scent and not as robust as the original Iceberg alas, at least, not for me.

Hi RitaG - Thanks for the info, I definitely want to track down the Fishermans Friend now! That photo is gorgeous.

Hi roseman - They are potted plants $25-$35. Pretty exxy, but I have had so much trouble with bare rooted (back in winter) and getting the correct plants Sad
I'm unsure if they are grafted or how she has obtained them I forgot to ask :/

Hi Tish, - and to answer Rosemans question, if you are talking about the lady I told you about then her roses are grafted, she has a dealer that supplies her.

Calm down Tish, go and see Gary before you spend any money. You could look on Help me find and check the health statis of your preposed roses. I wouldn't go with any that were not listed as "Very Disease Resistant".

Queensland is a big place, are you on the coast or 200K west. I have a friend at Warwick who grows magnificent roses.

I'm calm Smile Warwick is too far for us to go.
I've decided on 5 which I have researched, and which people have recommended, the rest will have to wait.
I spoke to her today, she's very knowledgeable.

Yes and she also deals with the Qld Rose Society if you want to go down that track. There are a couple of other places about a hours drive out of Brisbane if you ever feel like going out for a country drive. One at Laidley and the other Kalbar.

Tish, just wanted to let you know Warwick is a very good climate for growing roses. Quite different from the Qld coast. No, my friend doesn't sell roses.

I'm greatly moved by your enthusiasm for roses. Judging by your list you will have blooms 365 days of the year. Even the most unhealthy ones like the DA's and HT's will bring great joy at various times of the year. However, you are in Tea rose territory up there, they love heat and don't mind humidity.

Just to add my two bob's worth, the only rose I have on your list is Mrs Dudley Cross (because it is a Tea). It is slow to get growing, but it really appreciated the wet spring/summer last year. It is a healthy bush with no black spot, although at this stage (been in my garden 2-3 years) it is not as bushy as some of the other teas. It seems to have less, but larger and more shapely blooms than many of my other teas, a lovely scent, and no thorns!

Thanks Ozeboy Smile

I have absolutely just fallen in love with roses, none of my friends are into gardening so it is so nice to be welcomed here and talk so much about roses!

My very new favourites are Kronenbourg and Blackberry Nip. They're stunning and both love the heat!

This is my Kronenbourg below Smile

Thanks Maree, I might leave it till one of the last ones I get, I have heard people tell me the same thing you have. Do you have any photos?
