Ozeboy's rose nursery

Post by rosemeadow on 4th August 2012, 16:11

On my trip back from Tasmania, I went to visit Bruce to buy some roses from him as he propagates rare and well known roses . Here are some photos to show you how excellent they are. I have bought some before from Bruce and they grow very well.
I ended up decieding to tip the potting mix out so I could take them home bareroot as there was no way I could fit them all in the car potted. Their roots were excellent and there was quite a few worms in the potting soil. The last photo is of Bruce's cattledog.
Thanks for letting me visit at such short notice and for the lovely rose plants, Bruce Very Happy

David, pleased you can see a difference because there has been a lot of work go into setting up. I was sick and tired of having potted roses spread all over the 5 acres. There are still around 60 roses to be moved if room can be found on the new site.
The roses comprise mostly healthier HT's with breeding value, Tea's China's and Noisettes. There are a lot of very rare old Tea's including some Rookwood's. A lot of them have great appeal to collecters and people looking for lost roses that have been part of their life, 'Sharon Louise' bred by Mrs Parkes is one of those roses. A lot of the roses have been entrusted to me for safe keeping and others propagated for the National Rose Collection. I have a very good collector friend in SA who has sent me so many very rare plants. It is my aim to spread these roses to other area's so they will not be lost.
There are a few what I call sets of plants like the Riethmuller's of which I have all the known ones and three possibly considered lost ones.
Then there are the Mrs Parkes roses which I have all now 'Star Scent' has been found.

The Bluey is 'Tallawong Snow Flake' bred by Mrs Dickson of Victoria.
She is a true blue blood and suggest the ladies curtsey when meeting her. Her pups have been sent to Europe and USA winning at their big shows. The last pup damaged her ear, she is no longer a show proposition at 9 years of age.

Karen, thanks for documenting your visit, hope you, your family all the plants do well in Tassie.

You are welcome Bruce, its the least I could do.
Corrinnes loves the clothes you gave her, and they are the right size for her, or most of them.
Thanks for the good wishes for us all.
