Heritage Rose Inventory

Living Rose inventory, ‘The Shambles” Montville 2017, Kyleigh and Michael Simpson.

G.Nabbonand (Tea Rose)
G.Nabbonand (Tea Rose)

Old roses, grown almost exclusively from cutting form the basis of our collection. Most are Tea or China type roses but there is always room for more modern and Australian Roses.

Many of the roses listed are well established and flower freely. Some are less successful, due to reduced disease resistance in our humid climate and reduced sunlight in some areas of our shady garden. There is no irrigation system. Supplemental feeding with Sulphate of potash and Epsom salts together with organic material does benefit our roses. Limited and judicious pruning is done as they do not always survive aggressive pruning in our warm climate. Unfortunately a heavy prune in July 2015 set them back considerably, but almost all are recovering with many new cuttings planted in 2016,2017.
