Perhaps you may try Granada, DD's parent. It's a very fine older HT rose, and has a better overall bush quality, better foliage too. DD's fragrance is intense, but apart from that and a bit unusual colour combo, Granada is a much better plant and it also has a very nice fruity scent. Between the two, I'd always choose Granada.

Having stated the above, I cannot ignore 'Margaret Merril' any longer & she has to go. I cannot grow this rose well no matter how hard I try

What's wrong with your Margaret Merril? She can be picky but still many people love it ...

G'day Ozrosarian! Smile

I grow both 'DD' & 'Granada' here and 'DD' does far better & TBH is more to my liking! I guess it just comes down to where we live & what we like!?!

'MM' got awful BS in Sydney & has no vigor where I am now so it can be replaced with something better! I have tried a number of plants of it but I guess it is just not a rose for me sadly!!! She is very pretty...which is why I have tried so hard with her!

Hi Karen (Wave) , I would love to visit you oneday & you are more than welcome to visit me if you ever get a chance?

I still grow Peace, Double Delight, Papa Meilland and some other unhealthy HT's because at fleeting moments the occasional blooms are worth waiting for. Despite my continual bashing of unhealthy roses I still have Grace and Heritage which have just passed the fungis test. I did leave Brother Cadfael, Gertrude Jekyl and Jude the Obscure thinking someone would want these only to find no one wanted to kill themselves with fungus sprays.

David you were offered these some time ago but mentioned you had these and didn't want anymore so unless I hear from you within 24 hours they are on the rubbish to be burned stack up the paddock.

Damo, what town do you live near ?
My Margret Merril I grew fom a cutting about 6 years ago, hasn't done much in the way of blooms.

Rose Pruning Time?? I put off pruning HT's as late as possible, just before bud swell. Reason being I don't want a lot of new early leaf growth to be burn't by late frosts.

I can still spray with Lime Sulphur as there is no new shoots at this stage.

Karen, I live near Crookwell! Smile

Regarding pruning: I'm with Bruce for the exact same reason...frost!!! I don't touch my roses until late September at the earliest & often much later. I prune my roses very lightly though, just removing any dead wood or crossing stems!

I've done mine already... has to coincide with my holidays and I live with any damage. The damage is, however, minimal because things are so deeply asleep that they don't even look like starting to grow again till almost October.

Early on, when I first moved here, I pruned earlier & the overall damage was always pretty bad! Sad If it were just minimal damage I think I would do the same as you Simon; I'd get it over & done with at the most convenient time!

I'll never forget my roses (hundreds of them) in full leaf, sending out water shoots & covered in buds oneday & then wilted & burnt the next morning because of a late frost! Scarred for life haha...of course this can still happen regardless of when the roses are pruned though!

For me it is when I get to them or if I get to them, if I don't so what.You lot talk about late frost try 20 acres of chardonnay grapes all with young leaves on them and a LATE frost, Oct/Nov, that was the vineyard I am in so can you amagine bigger vineyard damage. Back to roses I am thinking about doing it Hmmmm
