Thinking more globally

Post by Admin on 5th June 2010, 17:39

Out of interest I went searching for the countries to which growers of roses can export nursery stock or cuttings/budwood from Australia. It's actually quite interesting especially consisdering that whilst we cannot export directly to the U.S. from here we can export to countries like Canada and from there they can go into the U.S.. Here's the AQIS link to search the countries we can export roses to:

Type the word 'Rosa' in the sceintific name field and then click 'search'.

So what does this mean?

It means that even though in Australia we have absolutely no need to breed roses with much in the way of cold tolerance... if we are to tap into larger markets we should still be keeping these things in mind and thinking more globally and have an idea of conditions in different places around the world, such as Japan, where our roses might end up or to which we can expand our markets.

Very interesting Simon. We can send budwood to the UK with a certificate? I'm thinking of my Eglantyne sport - if it proves stable
