Newie showing her first garden!

melian1212October 16, 2012

Here are a couple of pictures from my garden down here in sunny Argentina! It's a 3 years old garden with a lot of trees (too many) and some roses (I�m looking for disease resistant, very full plants and we don�t have many varieties to choose from so I�m just trying them out and learning as I go...) I�m very happy this year, some BS but they are holding on... I don�t know the name of the pink climber by the window and would apreciate your help!

There are a couple of Austins: Cottage rose, Scepter d�isle, Gertrude Jekill, Charllote, Graham Thomas, Mary Rose, Heritage and Geoff Hamilton... A couple of HTs : Violon D�Ingres...Some Floribundas: Charles Aznavour, Coumtesse Du Barry, and 6 Icebergs in the front garden... The climbers are Sally Holmes, Iceberg, Clair Matin and Kronemberg...

Hope you enjoy my photos as I enjoy yours!

Your unknown rose is absolutely stunning. It seems very happy in your garden, as does everything else. If you're fairly new to gardening I can only congratulate you!

Thanks for your kind words! This has been a good year so far...very mild winter, hardly any frost and now lots of rain... There is an outbrake of Blackspot that I hope will stop with the arriving higher temperatures (we don't have a long spring)...I don�t know if I will succeed but I�m determined not to spray... did it last year (there was a drought and we had every pest in the book plus the BS and Mildew)and I felt terrible... I have a child and pets and don�t want to place them or myself in danger... This season I�m already seeing many beneficial insects... I hope they restore the natural balance of my garden...
I don�t want perfection...I want roses that are able to resist and fight back and not be completely defoliated by the end of the season, without too much care, that�s all... For instance, right now the only ones that are BS free are Violon d�Ingres (that I bought because it was said to be very resistant), Geoff Hamilton, Mary Rose and Charles Aznavour (planted recently)... What do you think? Will I be able not to spray? Or will I loose the plant in the end? Thats my only fear, that if a don�t do anything the plant will die... I don�t mind loosing a couple or replacing them if they are not performing well but... do plants resist continuous fungal attacks?
I would appreciatte your opinion! I have learnt a lot reading the forum and would love to continue doing so!
Chau chau!

Melian,

Drop dead gorgeous larkspur!

I don't grow Falstaff or Gertrude Jekyll - have you compared them to your unknown pink? It's a beauty.
