Hi Rosemeadow, yes gardening with dogs is fun but there are moments. Such as landing head first into a rose bush when they get exuberant or ultra curious or just very "helpful" lol. It's funny watching them sniffing flowers, I think they enjoy fragrance like us. Then again maybe they're just checking who weed here! Haha

I enjoy seeing them running around doing things in the garden, like hunting mice or playing together, or laying in the shade of the bigger roses or comming for a pat. Gives you company or though I am quite happy gardening on my own too.

David, 'Papa Meillan' has wonderful fragrance, bloom etc but a bit slow to mature. I like more vigour. Papa Meillan isn't the most healthy down here. Would suggest maree try a Firefighter as well as a Papa Meillan to trial. Then she is buying roses suitable to her taste without spending a fortune.

Hi there ,Ozeboy and Roseman , i have Firefighter, Oklahmoa and Papa , all in standards , you are right Papa is sooo slow , this is its third year and not a lot of action so far , i'm beginning to think i'll be on a walking frame before it produces lots of blooms . The only reason i've kept it is cause i keep reading how beautiful the perfume is , mmmnnnnn.......

maree, you have 'Oklahoma' (Beginners luck) so propagate more from that. Nothing quite like a group of 10 all the one variety. The fragrance from 10 of these will knock your socks off. The standards are a little more difficult to work so would suggest bush roses to begin with.

The next thing is to get some Multiflora for understocks and a budding tool which costs around $10 material cost. These were developed these from reading about a high volume budding machine incorporating a punch system. They are a little crude but work well. There is plenty of Multiflora here.

My Camp Davids are not smelly enough, might be the Sydney humidity?
