How tough are roses?

It's difficult to start this Newsletter, after such terrible weeks for many Australians.

Brian and I have just come back from Europe, where we visited our family for a holiday organised months ago. 

It wasn't easy being so far away while Australia was experiencing the worst summer ever; we continuously followed the news and wondered all the time how we could help, how we could support people affected by the bush fires.

Back home just a few days ago, we are now considering several options and we'll update you soon. 

In the meantime, Brian will explain to you what to do with your garden when the temperatures become really hard.  

Roses are very tough and resilient, and they can survive many things, so don't give up with them and look at how beautiful our 2020 New Releases are.

Summer will finish soon and it's now the right time to plan something new for your garden.

In your garden this month...

"Just want to congratulate you on growing roses for the Australian conditions. I live on Kangaroo Island and, due to the bush-fires, we have not had a town water supply, have not been able to do laundry or use water for non-essentials such as garden. I was expecting many losses, but every single one of the roses I bought from you last season have not only survived but are still flowering..."

This is a lovely email we received a couple of weeks ago from one of our customers. 

We were obviously happy to know that our rose plants survived the horrible weeks Kangaroo Island experienced, but it also gave us the idea to remind how tough roses are, once they're established plants.

Would you like to be our Guest?
