Zoe enjoy your roses! Treloar roses are great with their freebies! Can't think of one freebie that I wish I hadn't got.

Now the fun begins. Very Happy

In recent years I have received two Hot Chocolate floribundas as free roses from Treloars and have been more than happy with them.

I'm glad you like your Hot Chocolates Ausrose Smile I would not know what to do with two Hot Chocolates!! All the roses I've ordered (quite a lot....hahahaha) are pastel pink and peach, and whites. I know it's a bit boring, but I like it. Hot Chocolate would stick out in my garden like a dog's proverbials! Hehe.

I wonder if they take a look at what you ordered and sort of match you up with freebies you will like. Seems unlikely though.

(PS. I'm not 'anti-floribunda' but I have an Iceberg phobia because they're absolutely everywhere around here, and they all look black-spotty and leafless and awful)

As I have expressed previously on this site I am not an Iceberg fan however I must admit they put on a terrific show and anyone can grow them. The Burgundy Iceberg definitely has a big following but to me it always looks as though Dr Huey rootstock has taken over a bush.Bred by Nola Simpson in NZ Hot Chocolate looks to me as though it might do well on the show bench in a floribunda class as it hasn't been shown a great deal in Australia and it might attract judges similar to the way the new girl in the staffroom attracts.

We got Cathedral City with my Treloar's order. Not sure if I like the colour but we will see.

It's the first order that we have made with Treloar's and I am interested to see how they go.

We ordered Climbing Cinderella, House and Garden, Poponella, Climbing Jasmina and Titan.

Nice selection Gary. That Cathedral City is a bit flouro for my liking though!

Climbing Cinderella, a piece of trivia in relation to this rose, Ralph Moore bred it at Sequioa nursery in the USA and I would guess it came to Australia at Roy Rumsey's nursery at Dural they were great friends and past budwood between each other.

Gary I guess it is the . Riethmuller 'Titan'  one you purchased, if so we had it at the rose nursery and it is still growing on the fence 20 years later, always in flower, it is neglected and not pruned or watered.

Zoe, has you Zeffy Drouhin got thorns on it?  Remember the previous conversation we had about Bunnings and the Z. Drouhin I bought from there?   OMG!!!

I will go and see what is looking like at present and "maybe" get a photo of it. If not I will get it when it comes back in flower.

I remember seeing it a couple of years back but always seem to leave it out of our rose order. I saw it in Treloar's so I added it to our order.

How exciting ... bare root rose time!  I am anxiously waiting my order from Misty Downs ... counting down the days until it arrives.  I've ordered  a few teas (a couple of which are replacements for miss-named teas from last year's order) and hybrid musks for a planned rose hedge.  

On another note, I had a serendipitous visit from Toowoomba's Heritage Rose expert, Bonita C.,who was inspecting a caravan for sale next door, and noticed our roses.  Lovely to share my very weedy, winter rose garden with such a knowledgeable person.  I rarely get the opportunity to share my love of roses face to face, so a wonderful inspiration to plant even more roses!

Ahh yes, the rose hedge! Now that is exciting! I ordered some stuff from Misty's too - do they send you an email when they post it out? Treloar's sent me an email with a link to track my package through Aus Post. Can you imagine - I was tracking it like a hundred times a day, I was almost frothing at the mouth with anticipation.

I wonder if you old hats remember receiving your first bare root order? I suppose it gets less exciting every year. I'm just savouring the excitement while it lasts, so you will have to bare with me.

How cool to bump into Bonita Smile Perhaps you can have a tour of her garden next?

Bonita turns up in the strangest of places. Very knowledgeable and lovely person.

Our order from Misty arrived a couple of days back. For the first time ever we managed to get all the roses we ordered. Probably due to the unusual (some of them) roses we ordered.

What did you order?

We ordered:

Moonsprite Floribunda Pale Yellow
Auguste Seebauer Early Floribunda Pink
Eutin Early Floribunda Red
Sadlers Wells Hybrid Musk Pink
St Francis Xavier Tea Red
Muriel Linton (BL) Tea Red
Mme Wagram Tea Pink
Malmaison Rouge Bourbon Pink
Souvenir De La Malmaison Clg Bourbon Clg Pink
Mrs Wakefield Christie Miller Early Hybrid Tea Pink
John C M Mensing Early Hybrid Tea Pink
Bishop Darlington Hybrid Musk White
(to replace the one I eventual killed by moving it every year)
Crepuscule Noisette Yellow
(to replace our old one that passed away last summer after being one of our oldest and worse performed rose)

Oh I can't remember what I got from where, except that I am getting Reve d'Or from Jean at Reliable because you convinced me of how great it was with your ridiculously good-looking photo, and I had to ring her up again after I had already made my order. Haha. I hope it's not like this every year. Hahahaha.

Zoe, Judy and Noel do not send out emails, be prepared to wait a bit, normally they tend to send out late. Also they have an end of season sale if that helps with any money you have left  lol!

Misty sent me an email saying the order had been posted and game me the tracking number. It is the first time they have done the tracking number but hey have sent me emails before saying that the order had been posted.

This is also the earliest that I have received them,. Normally it is early to mid August. Maybe I ordered earlier this year!

No Zoe, just to give you early warnings of the possible late purchases  Mushroom 

Gary it is about time they caught up with the times in "notifications"
I have always worked on the principle that if the catalogue comes out they are selling early, if it comes out late they send out late, this is only my opinion.
