Welcome Dave, I have a friend at Warwick and they grow very good roses there due to the dryer climate.

The humid coast of Queensland is a real problem for roses due to fungus problems. Stick with China, Tea or Noisettes and you should do very well.

Best of luck.

Thanks Ozeboy. I'll take note of that as i need plenty of advice. Yes, i thought the humid conditions here would present a problem. The climate here should be very wet in summer tapering off to low rainfall during winter, next to nothing in early spring and then back to heavy rainfall in summer, but over the last few years we seem to be developing a pattern of huge rainfall that comes down in bucketloads early in the new year and then just about nothing for the rest of the year. The humidity here in summer is to "die for"...literally !!!

G'day back to you Bemo. I have really enjoyed meeting some of the people on this site so far. They have been very friendly and extremely helpful. I don't think "chilly roses" are going to be a problem here. We rarely ever get frosts with an average winter's day in the low 20's DegC and summer temps in the mid to high 30's DegC and humidity between 80-100%. Maybe i could air-condition my garden ?? Idea Cheers. Dave.

Good morning Estate. Nice to meet you !! (oh goody...another one to gleen information from !!) I'm really looking forward to meeting all of you and can't wait to get into some serious rose growing. As i suspected, it's not as simple as buying a rose, digging a hole and throwing it in and see if it will grow. I can see it turning into a passion for me !!

Hi Roseman. Nice to meet you too. 1952 - 1953 WAS a good vintage wasn't it!! Thumbsup Yes, i sure am going to need that help you spoke about. My wife bought the roses we have now just recently knowing full well that we had no gardens prepared. I just hope they all survive !! My biggest job now is getting the gardens ready for planting next year as i would like a heap more roses. I'm going to take everybody's advice on here and look at the tea roses as i think they would be much better suited for this climate up here. Any advice as to how i prepare the new gardens would be greatly appreciated.
