Hi roseman, thanks for the welcome.
Live on 18 acres in Pomona on the Sunshine Coast. Not usually the easiest climate for dreaded BS, but we try to stick to resistant types. I love teas,chinas,bourbons,noisettes and polyanthas while hubby likes HTs. We both love DAs of course.  Very Happy

Nice to hear from someone close by. I'm sure we'd have plenty to chat about.

Hi sixmile.  Another Sunshine Coast/Hinterland enthusiast.  Fantastic.  
We live in the hinterland beyond Eumundi in God's own country!! Very Happy 
We grow some teas, bourbons, hybrid musks and noisettes.  
Need some rain from that cyclone up north (without the wind, of course!).

Don't get too excited there are not that many of us out there. Bloody hard to convince anyone around here that there are garden styles other than Balinese with the obligatory Buddas and palm trees.

NOT a fan of the old palm tree. That's all you see around Nooooosa  Laughing I was overjoyed when we found a stall at Yandina Markets selling potted roses a couple of weeks ago--mostly DAs which I love. We took home a lovely Molineux thats settling in well and going back today. They had a nursery at Tamworth and are now living in Eumundi. Nice people too.

We used to inhabit the Yandina Market but have not been there for a while. My wife still goes every now and again. She also likes the Caboolture markets for plants though not many roses down there.

Yes, sixmile - as Balinbear said ... it seems only a few of us up here believe it's possible to grow anything apart from palms and orchids. By the way, palms make a great backdrop to roses, I think - so exotic!!
No doubt, you too encounter those who emphatically state, 'you can't grow roses on the Sunshine Coast'...

Yes they do provide a decent backdrop. We have about 2 acres of rainforest/palms running through our place.

Its a bit different to making a garden of them.

How about paw paw trees as a back drop!!! Believe it or not one corner of our garden seems to have this combination .
I love to tell the knockers how wrong they are. Mind you it is a bit of a commitment to have them look near their best but worth every effort. There does seem to be a growing group of enthusiasts turning to older types, teas etc suited to our area. one of my "bibles" comes from the Perennial Poppies garden group at Brisvegas. It's a little pink covered booklet written by Leonie Kearney and Barbara Wicks listing the best "Old Fashioned Roses in a SubTropical climate" (title) I love love love this little book and my goal would be to grow every rose named in it.

Lee (my wife) is a member of the poppies and is off to England on a garden tour with Barb and Leonie and a few others in July.

By pure coincidence I was looking through that book this morning as I was putting my shoes on for work looking to see which roses we do not have.

Well I am extremely jealous Balinbear. The gardens should look brilliant in July for the travellers.

! have prowled(and drooled) through some of your photos and there probably isn't too many that your missing I bet
