David Austin collection
We are reaching completion of the David Austin Collection garden. Last week we had a flurry of back breaking activity brought on by the roses really starting to bud up and possibly a tiny bit due to our first rose group coming to visit on Sunday!
The Bay of Plenty Heritage rose group arrived on Sunday afternoon, sadly about 2 weeks too soon as far as roses to look at were concerned. Never mind, there were plenty of buds to admire and they could see the work in progress…
The roses definitely seem a bit tardy this spring, but every day now there is a cornucopia of new varieties to admire again, including some all new ones purchased this season.
We are also very busy potting up last seasons cuttings and are very excited with some new varieties we now have for sale. Some of the very early D.A.s decided they were going to make roots this year, so we will be offering a wide selection of the 1961-1999 varieties.
