In early Autumn all our plants are in flower and look stunning. It's the perfect season to see the nursery and that's why we'd like to invite you at our annual Open Day, on Sunday 29 March.

March - It's time to know each other
 

Our budding season is over - or nearly over - but March will be a busy month for us anyway because we have two very important events to organise.

South East Field Days at Lucindale on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st, and our annual Open Day on Sunday 29th.


These will be two great opportunities for us to meet you, listen to your stories, answer all your questions, and show you our beautiful roses.


Save these dates and organise a day with us; at Lucindale or, even better, at our rose nursery in Kalangadoo. 

We'd really love to meet you!


In the meantime, have a look at our beautiful 2020 New Releases; you'll be able to see them all growing at our nursery during our Open Day.


 
South East Field Days

On Friday 20th and Saturday 21st March, we'll be at Lucindale for the annual South East Field Days


We are very excited, because we've never been there before with our own stall, and we are hoping to meet many of you there.


We'll have many potted roses and cut flowers for sale, we'll have our beautiful 2020 Releases on display and it'll be a great opportunity to place your winter order for bare rooted rose plants.


Come to visit us, even to say Hi and have a chat: we'll be at site # 384, in Wilson Street.


Lucindale - SA

Friday 20th and Saturday 21st March

from 8 am to 5 pm.

Our "Open Day" is on again

This is our main event, that involves a lot of organisation and field preparation, a bit of stress (only for us though, you'll be very relaxed there), and a huge amount of excitement.


For the 8th year, we'll be happy to open our gates for a whole Sunday dedicated to you.


Brian will be in his element, chatting about roses for 6 hours without interruptions. 

He'll have 3 main tours through the nursery, explaining how he grows his roses and what you should do in your garden - a tour approximately every 2 hours, starting at around 10.30 am.


For the first time this year, we'll also have live music and 2 floral arrangements workshops with the talented Cindy Cross - landscaper and gardening expert - at 11.30 am and at 2 pm.


In the market area, we'll have food - BBQ, sandwiches and rolls, sweets and pizza - drinks, coffee, wine and craft beer.


Metal garden sculptures by artist Bruce Willmer; the Rose Society happy to share their knowledge about roses and to register new members; bunches of roses sold by the students of Penola Primary School to raise funds for their camps.


We'll have something for our young visitors too, with a jumping castle (weather permitting) and a Play Area.


Huge Autumn Sale on potted roses and a special discount on all winter orders placed and paid on Sunday 29th.


Wear comfortable shoes and wander through the thousands of rose plants in the field, captured by their colours and their fragrances.


Our Open Day is a great opportunity to see over 800 varieties of roses in flower and to discover our 2020 New Releases, but it's also an important fundraiser for Penola Primary School, with all the money from the entrance donated to improve their equipment and to fund school camps.



Sunday 29 March

10 am - 4 pm

20 Koorine Road

Entrance: $10 (entirely donated to Penola Primary School)

In your garden this month...



Early Autumn can be a lovely season for roses, with their best flushes of flowers lasting for another couple of months.

There's still something you can do in your garden to make sure you'll have colours up to April-May.


It's also the perfect time to order your new roses and prepare the soil for their arrival in wintertime.


Did You Know...?

You can have rootstock growing on standard roses as well, between the brunches or even along the stem.


You need to cut it off really hard and make sure it doesn't grow back, exactly as you would do with a bush rose plant.


In this video, Brian shows you how to do it.
