Welcome to the 2013 Rose season

With weather patterns returning to a more normal range over Summer, our roses still amaze me with their hardiness. We have a much drier spell since October last year yet the roses look a lot better than they were with last year’s Summer deluges. We had some fully grown cuttings down the paddock and they off irrigation all Summer, yet survived quite happily.

We will continue offering the best varieties to you this especially in our Old fashioned and David Austin(r) sections.

In our beloved range of Old-fashioneds we are bringing back:

  • Beauty of Glenhurst
  • Betty Prior
  • Blush Rambler
  • Duchess d’Angouleme
  • Gloire Lyonnaise
  • Kootenay 1917
  • Rosa Californica Plena
  • Souvenir de Philemon Cochet
  • Souvenir de St Anne’s
  • Doris Downes
  • William R Smith
  • Emily Rhodes
  • Sunday Best.

In the David Austin range we are introducing:

  • Lady of Shalott
  • The Wedgewood rose (one I have been waiting for )
  • Sir John Betjeman

Please enjoy browsing our catalogue of over 500 varieties and remember we are happy to answer any questions on varieties and how to grow beautiful roses.

We wish you all a happy and healthy gardening season ahead.

Fraser and Donna Parker
