Hi Rosetalk members , so glad i stumbled across this site , i am a avid gardener , love all sorts of plants , birds , beneficial insects , roses are one of my very favourite plants . I have grown a lot of roses and have learnt a lot on that journey , my garden is constantly changing as i learn more about the balance and environment you need for a beautiful garden , and all on a small suburban block too . I am constantly on the look out for new or old roses that i fall in love with , my philosophy is , if i don't love it , out it comes and that applies to all my plants i think . I am very happy to contribute to this page any way i can , cause i just love talking about roses, plants, birds and bugs . thankyou Maree

Ozeboy are you a breeder or seller of roses or in the rose industry ? Just wondering when you said you had been busy with roses at this time of the year.

Thanks roseman , i had a look and i think he is just the person i'd like to talk to . I have a small arch , which i had two Pierre de Ronstads on , one each side , i got sick of them cause they had no perfume and i couldn't reach the top to prune , also they got blackspot , so i pulled them out . Story of my life , thats what happens when you have a suburban block , if it doesn't suit , out it comes . I have wanted to plant a clematis and rose together , but would like a small climbing , perfumed , hardy rose and a hardy clematis . I did have a mme isaac pereire , which was beautiful , but it had to go to make way for a vegie patch . Any ideas anyone please , the arch faces north , thanks heaps

maree, I have a small boutique nursery in the North West area of Sydney. My roses are listed on Help me Find under nurseries, then Glenorie Roses. The roses consist of rare and found roses not usually in commerce, heritage, selected healthy roses from the 1800's and 1900's and breeding roses of interest. There are a lot of study roses here that are not on HMF but are called after the person who found the rose.
I do get collecters calling, looking for the unusual. Some of these forgotten or lost roses sometimes amaze me how beautiful and unique they are. Others are poor doers and can imagine why they have become almost extinct.

My interests are propagation, breeding and saveing almost lost roses. Currently I am trying to reserect the Riethmuller roses and have all known to exist except Lady Woodward which hopefully will be propagated this coming season. These roses do well up the mountains or the upper most tip of Australia.
Financially, I'm just under the nursery paying for itself but who knows, one day, might make a profit.
I'm usually available to assist with plants or information and help.
