This rose also appears on various sites as a florist-type rose

thanks, and Grand Prix looks really nice too.
Neptune, if you ask Bunnings, they may give the name of their supplier and you can find out if they will be getting First Red

Tried that before and they have no idea what is coming in the load. They said they have no way of checking the names before receiving them

PJP 2 is a fantastic rose, seems to be always in flower and smells lovely.
I've usually bought potted roses, but now have bought a bagged rose. Are they much harder to grow then potted? Anything special they require?

Thanks Maree, had a look, it say to break off shoots as they grow, is this to help get the roots established first to save energy? I won't be pruning till mid July, and was thinking bout stripping the leaves of all so I could hit with spray's to help reduce blackspot for the growing season. Don't know if that is a good idea or not. If so, I don't really want it to start shooting leaves just yet.

Happy roses go to youtube and type in " Guru planting a winter rose ' its a Swanes guru and he's planting a bagged rose . I just read where they say about the shoots , don't know about that , does anybody else know ? If you keep poking about the Swanes site you will find lots of bits of interesting info , just keep clicking on any links you can find ..

Bunnings and Big W in Maryborough have had some nice varieties of D.A roses in, last week; can't guarantee they have much left after our visit tho..
I did grab a really sturdy-looking Cinderella Climber too, couldn't go wrong for $8, and I have liked what I have read so far on her... hopefully they will still have a couple left next week on pension day! I think she would look lovely with 2 or 3 on a rustic post n rail... Has anybody got her growing- observations/notes/thoughts appreciated study
