Hi one and all

Post by Linde on 2nd November 2010, 15:56

I recently found this website and ocassionally come on to see some of the topics and thought it time to introduce myself.
The rose addiction started a few years ago for me. My husband and I had a wholesale nursery for many years, however, not growing roses only exotic/native trees, shrubs and groundcovers. We sold the nursery early 2000. Bought land up here and built from scratch. I am a photographer by trade so still do that part-time.

With the influence of a mother who has always been a very keen gardener and my neighbour who has open gardens the love of gardening has struck. When we had the nursery we did have gardens, however not extensive and we had a young family then and my husband felt because he worked with plants all week he wanted time out from them.
I particularly love old fashioned roses such as teas and noisettes. I always think after purchasing new roses that will be enough now, but I get over that quickly and am always looking for more. (groan goes my husband)
We live in the hinterland of the Sunshine Cst up near Mapleton/Montville (just a bit below) on a hill, lovely views but the price we pay is wind. So our gardens get a working out, only the tough survive!

I look forward to joining in on discussions and getting to know you.

Linde Very Happy

Hi Linde

Newbie myself. I also have a home on top of the hill. Fell in love with the views, but they also came at a price "WIND", espicially in the winter months. So far haven't had too many casualties, but most importantly, my Roses are whethering it fine (though I have had to stake many of them just in case).

Thank you for your welcomes.
Hi Shamous, we unfortunately get the wind all year round, the worst for us being the nor westers and sou easterlies. However, like you our views are beautiful and we can put up with the wind to have them!
The roses I have are amazingly tough, the wind probably blows off a few aphids and the fleas off our dog!
I will upload some images down the track as soon as I learn how to do that.
Cheers,
Linde

Is there really someone else (apart from the 3 or 4 that I already know) that have discovered that you can grow roses on the Sunshine Coast.

We are down in Mooloolah Valley and grow teas, chinas, noisetts mostly (with the odd imposter thrown in there eg Alister Clarkes hybrid teas and polyanthas). We have a gallery of our roses on

Hi Balinbear,

I had noticed before that you are from the sunshine cst. We are up at Dulong. I love the tea/noisettes and old worlds. My first tea rose was Monsieur Tillier that my neighbour introduced me to and since then the rest is history. I now have about 15 variety of teas.....lots more to come! and a few noisettes and also like you lots of other variety of roses. The most modern for me is a delbard rose ' Sister Emanuelle ' she is beautiful however, blackspot can be a problem, was supposed to be very resistant, that is why I really only am wanting teas etc. from now on, they definately are hardier.
I purchased an interesting 'unnamed pink tea' from Trewallyns (Bundaberg) earlier in the year, I think I have identified what she is 'auguste compte' but will sometime put up a few images of her to get some feedback. It is a very interesting tea!!
Would love to visit your garden sometime, I notice you have a great selection.
Cheers,
Linde
