Hi Peoples

Post by paulh on 11th September 2012, 22:05

Hi everyone, my name is Paul and I live in a coastal suburb about 40 minutes north of Perth West Australia.

I am semi retired, so I have a lot more time on my hands these days, so about 2 years ago after we moved into a smaller house with smaller yard we started our love affair with Roses.

I must say that the roses are a fair bit of my focus these days and I'm continualy looking for advice and I'm always on the lookout for the next rose that really appeals to me. I mainly look for the more scented roses also the unique of colours and names that we can relate to.

Anyways, I will shortly post some pics and the story so far with our roses and will certainly be wanting some tips.

Thanks Peoples
Paul

The soil out my way isn't much chop, fair bit of limestone, I actually bought many trailer loads of Vegi mix soil from our local landscape supplies, which has all the goodies in it. I have a lot of roses in pots as well.

Paul - How do your potted roses go? I experimented and put 10 in pots this year and they are thriving more than the garden roses!

RosyTeesh I'd say 80% do really well, however the other 20% do ok to a degree. When potting I mix in a fair bit of organic cow manure, some slow release fertiliser, a little bit later I dig in soome blood and bone.
