I especially like Camelot! It's great to see you here. You have an excellent teacher in your Uncle Damian. He knows so much about roses and is a top guy on top of that. I'm sure he can help you cross your two roses to practise getting seeds and raising seedlings.

You're a good bloke Damo. Great to see people encouraging the next generation of rose breeders for Australia Thumbsup

No worries Smile

How much space do you have Jakob? Has your Uncle helped you make a garden yet? Maybe I could send you a few roses to add to your collection Smile

Jakob, wonderful to see your interest in roses. I am trying to get my Grandchildren interested but there are too many distractions like horses, dogs and chooks.

Jakob, I have just met, this young boy will produce some great roses. As a young lad he already knows the basics of crosses. His uncle Damo is amazed at his early thoughts of crossing roses. He also has 4 roses at present that are the foundation of his new roses. In MY opinion all of this forum should nerture Jakob in all ways.
If anyone has a rose no longer needed why not ask Jakok if he would like it and I will pay the postage.

Hi Jakob,
my 4 year old daughter Lotus loves Roses also and has claimed the Chicargo Peace (which has my departed fluffy in it) Potted as hers.
Smile she waters them and we check for Aphides try catch lady beetles to put on them to get rid of aphides and shows visitors our rose garden.
I loved helping my grandparents as a little girl in their rose garden also.
So it's wonderful to see you interested, learning and see the beauty in flowers at the age of 10. Congratulations

Jacob, its great to see you here !
A very good book about some French young people who loved roses, is For love of a rose, written by Antonia Ridge. One day you should read it, it is very inspiring.
