Well, there you are Dennis! You've just answered a question we had recently on "how long do roses live?" You've made your mark on the forum! An eighty year old rose is astonishing. Would love to see a photo of it! (Hint Hint!!) LOL

SueH, I will take photo's but all you will get at the moment is old roses that have been pruned and sprayed waiting for some manure and mulch and warmer weather? Is this Ok??? Dennis

Dennis with such a full schedule for looking after all those roses, I'm curious if you have time to have to have your own garden. Can you tell us about it? Dealing with extensive formal (I'm assuming) rose gardens, I wonder if you have an informal approach at home? You can always tell me to mind my own business! Lol

My wife and I have a beautiful garden on two acres on the outskirts of Braidwood NSW. It is open on the Airing of the Quilts weekend each November (late in the month). Cheers

Hi from Queensland. I look forward to sharing our rose experiences with you.

Not to steal your thunder but a list of roses in the The Rex Hazlewood Rose Garden can be found on

Didn't know the roses were listed, this will be very helpful to me in their management. But you can see what a job some of the gardens are? Many of the roses require very different treatments. Some are pruned normally, some to knee high, some to waist high, some shoulder high, some head high and some not at all. It is knowing which rose requires which treatment is the problem. In the past all roses were pruned the same. Also Rugosa roses do not like to be sprayed at all! Thank you. Dennis

Dennis, with so many, many, many roses in your care and in your up-close experience, do you have personal favourites? Ones you have planted in Braidwood, for example.

Gold Bunny, Simply The Best, Zephrine Druone, PiereDe Ronsardt are some of my favourites but I don't have time to smell the roses at work much. There are so many and they keep us all so busy. Dennis (Sorry I have not checked the spelling!)

Dennis, have just had a look at Simply the Best and Zephrine Druone roses. Wow, aren't they beautiful?! Zephrine looks to be a prolific bloomer, is this right or is the photographer taking a "poetic license"? Wonderful old rose!

Sue, Zephrine is a stunner, resistant to Black Spot stunning scent which fills the air and very beautiful blooms. Well worth a place in any garden. Simply the Best is a huge flower and the scent is fantastic. Cheers

I simply can't find Simply the Best in any of the main catalogues in Oz. Strange. It's a NZ rose, too.

betsyw, try HMF or roseman's link. I found it just by googling it's name. It's just stunning and I just love Zephrine!

Dennis, thank you. I will certainly be finding spaces for these two! Very Happy

Sue, I actually had looked at the HMF entry earlier, and had gone through the Where to Buy section after no luck with the usual suspects (Treloars, MG, etc). There were no entries for Oz suppliers on HMF, and . Google revealed nothing either. Very strange, as I said, for a McGredy rose that also won Rose of the year in 2002, and was a commemorative Commonwealth Games rose.

With the NZ connection, and all the hoopla, I'm sorta surprised that it fell from grace so fast.

Yes, I agree betsyw. Seems a shame. Will keep looking and let you know if I get anywhere. Maybe someone else on the forum will oblige!

You could try Googling McGredy and see if they have a contact number then trace it back to OZ or maybe, a little maybe Thomas' might have it. Last option get budwood of Dennis.

Actually, I am more curious than keen. Truth be told, I am not so enchanted with the rose that I would jump through the creaky hoops of Thomas's archaic payment sytem ( snail mail? stamps? cheques? ), nor impose upon Dennis for budwood (even if I knew what to do with budwood, or had the patience to deal with it, if I did) .

There are only two roses for which I would undertake creaky hoops or grovel for the kindness of strangers: Sweet Chariot and Secret Garden Musk Climber.

I have an order in with Ozeboy for the first, and the merest unrealistic glimmer of hope for the second ;-))))
