Roses that jump

Post by Carole on 10th May 2009, 21:28

Today we went to look at bare rooted roses (NOT TO BUY) but I had problem 'Jayne Austin' 'The Dark Lady' and Redoute just through themselves at me. Twisted Evil I being hard hearted put them back on the shelf, Very Happy BUT they followed me and just jumped into my arms. cheers So I confered with David and we decided we had got to give them a good home Wink So just as we were leaving another rose jumped up and shouted 'I HAVE LOST MY TAG' . The lady in charge rushed over and said'poor thing nobody will want it without a name Crying or Very sad it could be a surprise when it flowers' We just looked at each other and then she said the magic words " A $5 Surprise " So ofcourse we took that one home with us as well. Laughing I just cann't resist a bargain bounce . Carole

Roses are funny you know... they can spot a sucker a mile away lol!

'Redoute' interests me a little. It's a sport of 'Mary Rose' (along with a swag of other sports from MR too). If 'Mary Rose' grows well for you then so should 'Redoute'. I think it's a much more attractive colour than 'Mary Rose' too.

Guess what every one. I went shopping today and not one single Rose jumped into my arms Sad So when I came home I went on the computer and just to cheer myself up I went totally mad and purchased a greenhouse. cheers not a bad size 12ft x8ft . Now I suppose it will have to try and pay for itself. At least it should be warm in it during winter Very Happy

You lucky thing Carole! Green houses are wonderful places to be in on wet cold days when you want to do gardening but the weather won't let you. That is when you weed them, install or service the drip irrigation, pot cuttings and sow seeds. Don't lay the manure down until you are about to leave though. Shocked

Went to our local nursery last, the Big W, no roses jumped in, did not have the one's cyclops wanted, no DA's or as they are referred to "English Roses'. Had one called "Smooth Velvet" I am going to buy it for a friend named Larry. The lady(Heather) that works there is only casual as she is in the retired age bracket, Heather was recruited for her knowledge of plants and her one specialty, which is funny enough roses. Heather only has 394 at present in her new garden, more to be added she mentioned last night. The management of the store have given her power to return stock if she would not buy it for herself. That is what I call trust in staff at the coal face, I ask her advice when I do not know something, which can happen as I am not "peter perfect" as Carole calls me.

Hi victims of jumping roses,
earlier I have thougt, it's impossible that roses are able to jump. Later I have observed that they are able to find the way in my basket by themself. It has been also seen that hips can do this too (I found hips in my pockets after a visit in a garden center and a rosary, but could not remind how this happened).
Last , rose seeddlings can find the way in the compost by themself, they show the breeder with a white or black flag, that they want to go pale , wise owls affraid

regards Bemo

I was just thinking that lady at big W might like to make out a stock list for all bigW's, australia wide. Could be very useful. Idea

Wouldn't help me, Abbi, we don't have a Big W here, but that is a very good idea. I know our Hardware store person has no say in what roses they get in.

The B shop was right out of jumping roses the other day. I went with a gift card clutched in my hot little hand, and they didn't have anything I wanted Shocked Shocked Shocked
A few David Austins which didn't want to come home with me, and a few run of the mill HTs. Tantrum Tantrum Tantrum

Which DA's did not want to come home with you, they did not like you or was it the other way round.

Rant There I was today, just wandering around the garden section of bw minding my own business when all of a sudden this naughty, naughty Twisted Evil rose spotted me and jumped into my arms, I tried to put it down but the naughty rose pushed its thorns into me and said it wouldn't release me until it was driven to our new rose garden that David has just built Very Happy . These roses are criminals and all weak people should steer clear of them.They are quite ruthless in there hijacking technices . This culprit has a name it is" FALSTAFF" . Please be very careful roses are everywhere and none of you are safe! affraid P.S. Falstaff has become much less aggressive now he is in his new home.

I was attacked by Falstaff last year Carole, I know what you mean!
I am the victim of roses travelling through cyberspace and forcing me to look at online catalogues.
2 arrived the other day, Jude TO and Abraham Darby.
8 more are on their way.
Where can I hide ????????

Hi,
I've also been a victim of cyberspace roses. Some that will be coming here in the near future are Mrs Oakley Fisher, Irish Elegance, Dapple Dawn, Eva, Golden Wings, Sunny June, Jacqueline du Pre and a Shot Silk (bush not climber). Online catalogues can make victims of us all - be warned!!
Very Happy

I've tried to be very good this year in what I get so have limited it to:

'Safrano' (Tea), 'St. Francis Xavier' (Tea), "Francis Dubreuil" (listed as a Tea but probably an early HT), 'Alice Amos' (Polyantha), 'Euphrates' (hybrid persica), 'Many Happy Returns' (Hybrid bracteata... grandchild of Mermaid), 'Ebb Tide' (Floribunda), Hot Chocolate (Floribunda), Jean Kenneally (miniature), Rosa gigantea, Rosa bracteata, and the bush form of Cecile Bruner (china/polyantha).
