WANTED: Prospero

roselee z8b S.W. TexasSeptember 14, 2010

I had Prospero (AUSpero 1982) and dearly loved it, but it didn't survive a move. It is rarely offered by rose nurseries anymore so if you have one perhaps we could trade for cuttings of roses I have.

Thank you!

Hi Roselee,

Propero is indeed a treasure. I left one behind in a former house and missed it as well. I got a specimen recently from Pickering Nurseries of Ontario, Canada, a good, reasonably-price source of roses. Could you send me a list of what you have in your garden or perhaps post of list of what you have to trade in your "Trade List" on your profile? Perhaps we can trade cuttings for a number of different roses.

John

John, thank you for replying! I'll get a list of my roses together and put it on 'My Page' within the next day or two. I only have about 40 or 50 roses right now. Hopefully I'll have something that you might like to try.

Hi Roselee,

I sent you an email this weekend with a list of what I grow. Please let me know if you still would like to trade cuttings.

Thanks,

John

John, as you know by now I received your email. Thank you. Also wanted to let people know that thanks to John I found out that Pickering offered Prospero so I ordered it from them. Michael G mentioned on a post that Prospero is not an easy rose to root so thought that would be the best route, no pun intended :-)
