Re: Someone has the American Rose Annual from 1931?

Rodrigo, I don't know where you live, but if you live in the state of SP, you may be able to find a good bit of information re. Roselandia which used to be in Cotia. Unfortunately that firm seems to have gone out of business and its buildings apparently were destroyed in 2014. I don't know whether s...

Re: Bayer Advanced All-in-One Rose & Flower Care

Henry, As you note, the present label for the Bayer Advanced Disease Control for Roses, Flowers & Shrubs does not specifically mention to avoid use while pregnant. Perhaps you should write to Bayer to ask that a specific caution (DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE PREGNANT!) be provided. However, the label does ...

Re: Bayer Advanced All-in-One Rose & Flower Care

**our findings suggest a potential risk of triazole fungicides to human pregnancy.** Maybe the precautionary principle is to avoid being pregnant? Or to avoid getting pregnant if planning to use such a fungicide. Most of us drive vehicles that burn gasoline. The fumes from gasoline (such as one inha...

Re: Don Juan

Some nurseries in the Netherlands are listed on the "Buy From" tab on the HelpMeFind listing. And if you have met some rose growers there in the UK, you may be able to find it just by asking around. 'Don Juan' came from an Italian breeder.

Re: Bayer Advanced All-in-One Rose & Flower Care

John, I agree with those who say to avoid the Bayer Advanced All-in-One It's an awfully expensive way to buy fertilizer--and routine, indiscriminate spraying of insecticide will decrease the number of beneficials in your rose garden. If you need to control black spot and powdery mildew, Bayer Advanc...

Re: So I don't think I'll be using Coir again

Rebekah, More than 10 years ago I decided to try coir. I ordered some bricks, soaked them, and liked what I saw. It was what I didn't see that caused the problem. The coir had been processed in salt water, and was loaded with sodium--enough to kill nearly everything I planted in it. I wrote an artic...

Re: When to expect Rugelda F1 first blooms

I grew Rugelda for several years, and never got recurrent bloom from it. Nor did any of its seedlings (from several crosses) show recurrence. One seedling that got hidden among more vigorous seedlings from other crosses bloomed for the first time 9 years after it was planted out. After that it bloom...

Re: Who was "Maria Stern?"

Kim, you didn't waste any time getting that link posted. The note was added only a couple minutes before you posted it. It was an interesting but brief research project. Maria Stern died at age 90 in 1999, so she had many years to enjoy her rose.
