I'm new

Post by caric on 3rd March 2015, 12:52

Hi I am new here as well. From 2002 to 2008 I had Roses. I planted 47 different bushes as my front border/fence to my old house. I was no expert & self taught myself. I kept records of there progress & learnt from that. I have so much still to learn. I loved coming home & tinkering each day in the Rose gardens. I was always annoyed with myself when I saw other peoples gardens as the bushes seemed larger healthier & more long stemed than mine but at least I was trying. I found out that I do not like florabundas & prefer the tea roses. I have just purchased a new existing home & the first thing that went in near my clothes line at the back was seven bushes. I have a blank canvas in my front yard that I will be eventually converting into a rose bush haven. My target is to this time have bigger, better healthier roses that make my day when I come home from work each day.

Through experience I have found one of the most important aspects of growing roses is to prepare your beds before you plant your roses. I would suggest you use Dr Google to find the ideal medium for growing roses.

Good to see another Queenslander who grows teas.

What varieties do you have?

Caric, this 'new' house you have come to live in, is it a new housing estate or just a new house for you ?. The reason I ask is if it is a new suburb of Redlands I would assume they have taken a lot of the original soils away. If it is an existing suburb i would walk the streets to see how the neighbors have made thier gardens, whether raised or ground level this will also give you some idea of drainage.
Enough said for now, and like the rest a very warm welcome from me.
David.
