Does anyone in Tas know if Stoney Banks Cottage (Jackson Rd Franklin) is still in business? I can't find them on whitepages. So many stand-alone nurseries succumbed to the drought. They used to stock a found Bourbon "Renee Griggs" and a found rambler "Ann's chook house rose" (irresistable name!) which I'm chasing for the HRiAI Collections at Renmark.

I can't find any reference to it anywhere on Google.. There is no Jackson Rd in Franklin that I can find. There is a Jackson St (copy and paste this reference into google earth: 43 4'39.03"S 14659'11.66"E)... is this it? I can find Stoney Bank Nurseries in Pennsylvania... but nothing here.

Do you have any more of an address? Dee lives near there and might have a better idea.

Sorry, quoted as Jacksons Rd in Dianne Ackland's book (1996 edition), no number mentioned. The phone no was quoted as (002) 66 3398. It was open on Sundays (only) then, and did mail orders within Tas.
I can see Jacksons Rd on google; very few houses on it.

I did get through to someone, and as far as I remember - it was a long time ago - they no longer focus on roses.
