Their "end of season" sale consists of roses that did not sell during the mail order rush, you will either get a list in the mail or maybe on the computer. The list is not long usually, but sometimes you can get some 'bargains' or one's that you might have been deciding "do I want this one or that one"

Hahaha so true Sue. I was there yesterday, I bought these:

VERY fetching Zoe! Actually, I thought you would have gone for the pink pair to go with a purple dress!! LOL Oh, and I quite agree with your comment about wanting them both! That's more like it!  Eye Popper

Well folks, I'd just like to say that 31 out of my 35 roses are planted! I have four roses that I bought for my "no-mans-land" area, and they're going in tomorrow, then I will be done and dusted!

I've also put in 15 fruit trees (5 of these have been temporarily potted up though because their holes are not ready), 10 camellias and a few lilacs. And the 1500 bulbs... I am very sore and tired.

I will post some photos after I put some mulch down next weekend.

Wow Zoe, that's some workout! I'm exhausted just reading about it. How's the back? Lol.
Just think of the transformation you have made to your garden when everything's growing and in full bloom. Can't wait for the pix.

Ahh John, you're still pretty cheeky for an old fogie! Glad to see the years haven't eroded your sense of humour Smile Hahaha.

In truth though, it really is just a warm up. I feel like I've done soooo much work, but when I look at the garden I realise I haven't even touched the sides! 

My back is ruined Silky! But at least the daffodils are blooming, so I get a bit of instant gratification!

Well done Zoe.  Just think of the effect in a few months time!  We'll all be green with envy!  Well, I will anyway! LOL

Well, the first blooms are out... And it's the tea roses! I only have four teas - Mrs BR Can't, Mme Joseph Schwartz, Anna Olivier, and Marie von Hautte - and they are all blooming before anyone else. I know I am supposed to pinch the buds off so they can grow roots, but it just can't do it. 

I will definitely add some more teas to my collection if they're all going to be this awesome. Pics to follow Smile

Bud pinching - somehow it flies in the face of Nature - my nature, anyway ;-)))))). Congrats on all your new bloomies! Pix?

Yeah I can never bring myself to pinch those little buds either. Seems ungrateful to the rose offering up her beauty.
I wanna see pics too!

Anna Olivier doesn't have any good flowers at the moment, only an old faded one. I will post some pics when her new buds open, and Marie von Houtte updates. And I will try to remember to rotate the pics.... Haha.

So far, so good - so very VERY good.

Are you developing any feelings of favouritism yet ???

Well, I've only seen four flowers so far out of my 35+ roses, so I feel I had better reserve judgement until I've seen them all! But in Perth I was most impressed with Lamarque, so I can't wait to see that one flower Smile

My. Neighbour likes Mrs BR Can't best so far.

I know what you mean Zoe, Munstead is an opulent heartstopper. Nice shaped bush too. Isn't it exciting seeing your new roses bloom for the first time?  Don't forget to take photos.
