Greenvale Rose Farm

Post by silkyfizz on 6th January 2014, 21:12

Has anyone had any dealings with Greenvale Rose Farm (north of Melbourne)? I've been looking at their web site and they have a huge selection of roses (all potted). I wouldn't mind checking them out and having a look at their stock. Maybe someone has bought their roses or visited the rose farm?

Fun site, for sure. Could use some spelling corrections (Alex's Red -sic), but Loved playing with the mix 'n match search engine.

Which less common roses interest you, silky? Stop blushing and go see them, already. There's work to be done!

Well Alec's Red caught my eye for sure. Yes spelling jumped out at me too! Lol. But I had fun using the search engine too. I just want to see the place because it has a huge range of potted roses according to their website, and I'd never heard of it before. Which seems strange that it doesn't seem to be well patronised, if responses here are any indication. Strange also that there are no prices that I could see, so I wonder how pricey it is. But don't worry, when I do go I'll be taking my trusty little el cheapo camera with me, so you can all have a gander. Maybe I've unearthed a real gem! Maybe I can be the Indiana Jones of the Rose World! hahaha. We'll see...

I grew Alec's Red a number of years back and it did throw the occasional good exhibition bloom.

I really like the colour and the form of Alec's Red. And the strong perfume of course.

I was wondering if you had been yet Silky? I was on their site last night, and say they have a few that I would otherwise have to order bare root from interstate-but the no prices thing is a bit scary....
Was thinking of going myself, but not sure when I can manage it, because its across town from me.

Yikes! Just for a rose in a pot?
Curdle I haven't been yet, it's just too hot and I figured their plants wouldn't be in top condition considering our recent heat. I live across town too but I still plan on paying them a visit. At those prices I may not buy a thing but it might be useful to see the plants I'm interested in, in bloom.

Hi Maree,
 
no I haven't gone there , just have been in contact , to be honest the guy I was dealing with over the email wasn't very helpful and kind of abrupt and pushy all I got out of him is their stock is 3 year old in pots and they start @45 + so I think I will give that place a miss

finally made it there , was a total disappointment, the service sucked , the bloke there was rude no help , I went inside to ask a question had his back turned to me and answered abruptly . most of the roses are in small pots with their roots hanging out of the bottom of the pots , they looked very tired with lots of dieback. and at $ 40 each I did expect them to be at least healthy.
