Jordan, have checked the size of some of them. Leander is huge, in DA's English catalogue he has given it it's own group,they are large plants leading to climbers. Might pay to check all thier sizes, if they are going into pots.

I have The Alnwick Rose in a half wine barrel. Used to have Evelyn in a large-ish pot but it wasn't really happy there. Jude the Obscure can get pretty big too.

Jordan71, don't be upset if you lose some of the DA's for they seen to be cool dry weather roses. I have given up on them due to excessive dieback. Some make it OK but you can count those on one hand.
It's a shame really for they are very beautiful grown for the old rose look and Damask like fragrances. I am sure the breeder would concentrate more on health having bred in all those other good attrabutes. Alas we have a used by date and I hear David Austin is battling cancer. I'm sure everyone growing roses wish him well and like to see him one day listed on the Rose Hall of Fame , (Is there such a thing?)

Rita who posts here when time permits has fantastic DA's in her Sydney garden. After visiting her garden it makes one think about trying to grow them again.

I had a call from a guy in The McKay, Queensland area who sings the praises of Reithmuller and Tea roses for his climate.

You might be able to grow those DA's down south without special attention. Best of luck and get those roses planted into the ground as soon as possible.

I hear good reports from growers in the drier climates such as
Wastern Australia and inland areas such as Deniilquin and Mudgee.
That's one of the reasons why some HT's I sent to David have grown very well despite being hopeless on the coast. The DA's can grow to 7'6" here but suffer up to 50% cane dieback yearly.

I'm trialing my seedlings at Mona Vale right on the coast just 500 meters from the open surf. I'm sure Gary up in Queensland would give a good assment of a roses health He's pretty well right at the middle of the east coast where the greater number of people live.

I have a nursry man friend in lower Qld supplying plants but no roses. His advice to customers is roses won't do well here so he doesn't stock them. Pity he hasn't heard of Tea's, Noisettes China's and Riethmuller roses. Unfortunatly most of these roses are too large for a lot of modern home gardens. I believe the future will be tidy shrub roses, metre tall that will be healthy growing anywhere on the east coast.

David Austin is a master breeder of roses growing beautifully in low humidity UK with their roots covered in 12" of stable manure to keep their roots warm. He has achieved his goal but let all rose breeders know we need roses to suit Australia, particularly where the greater population lives, (Coastal Australia.)

In WA some of DA roses easily grow to over 3m high, so I suggest you have a look at what roses you bought and consider where you plant them.

A little good book is the Melville nurseries Handbook of Roses, which names all the different roses they sell but also how they grow in WA. The height indicated in this particular handbook is specific to WA and gives us a more accurate picture of how they will become rather then how they grow in other parts of the country.

A PDF version can be downloaded on their webpage:

It is a couple of years old, but the roses still grow the same Smile

Here in Slovenia my english roses are doing well.
-Pat Austin is reblooming non-stop and has very nice fruit fragrance, but the flowers don't last long. A must-have English rose.
-Teasing Georgia is a monster and needs a lot of space, maybe it will reblom better in it's second year.
-WS2000 is beautiful, healthy foliage, strong fragrance, reblooming still not very good. I reccomend it.
-Winchester Cathedral, I will see this year, because it's its first spring
-The Alnwick Rose is beautiful, not wide, but the rebloom isn't so fast as I wished it would be. And it's sadly almost without fragrance.

Rose-Anna, lucky you because you have the climate to grow them,
DRY, low humidity.
I have an interest in most things to do with nature and beekeeping is one of those interesting persuits. I only have 5 hives now but have had up to 35. It's important to have quality pollen and nectar available as often as possible. One year I decided to bring in about 8 varieties of Western Australian Eucalyptus in tube stocks. Rose or Flower of of the West was one and another Bushy Yates. All were a complete failure despite placing them in rather light soil at the back of my few acres.
They all looked like they had some terrible disease or being attacked by bugs.
My post made reference to the East Coast climate.

The morale of the story is, plant what will grow in your climate.
