ROSE RAMBLER 12.10.2017 …
Hello dear rose friends as we enjoy the glory of spring – we’re already halfway through – rushing towards summer and we’re hedging bets between us about which rose will be the very first flowering this season:
Tova is convinced it will be THE OPPORTUNITY ROSE
Ben says TEQUILA SUNRISE
Graham believes it will be TWILIGHT ZONE
So you can see, despite another minus 2 frost earlier this week, roses in 20cm pots which act like a humid-crib for their roots, on higher ground up in the Rose Nursery are ready to flower … amazing to all of us!
GRA’S GARBLE …
Please don’t wait until problems occur – to 10 litres of water mix all of the following:
- ¼ cup Eco-Rose/Fungicide (powder should be dissolved in water first)
- ¼ cup Eco-oil and ALWAYS ADD A SEAWEED PRODUCT – we use and recommend ECO-SEAWEED POWDER – extremely economical as you use your own water!
Did you know that going for a drive in your car is the most popular of all recreational activities that Australians do? Not the footy or sports viewing on TV or going to the theatre …
Q. How many peanuts grow on trees? A. Peanuts grow in the ground!
When something dies …
This GOLDEN DIOSMA hedge was very visible in aerial photos we had taken of our property back in 2003 and after severe frost events this past winter, it died.
I called 3CR Garden Show on Sunday morning and the expert panel suggested that the hedge had done its time and demised due to age – I took their advice and removed it – but oh, gosh, what a hole it leaves in a very prominent part of our entrance driveway.
Solution … I will plant a hedge of THE GOLDEN CHILD roses so that when my Mother visits (regularly) I can remind her that I didn’t plant the hedge for my BROTHER but … yes, for her other GOLDEN CHILD, Diana!
on the Hume Freeway, 60 kms north of Melbourne
