For Gary Wootton.
You have entered your seeding 'Our Kiera' and noted:
"Parentage for this rose is White Spray by Dr Bruce Chapman".
We have three White Sprays, and I think you might mean the rose that Dr. Bruce Chapman bred and for a good while was known as (Kardinal x White Spray), but now known as 'Dr. Bruce Chapman'.
It was never specified which 'White Spray' he used in his parentage. We have three named as such:

White Spray (shrub, Lens, 1980)
White Spray (unknown, McGredy 1990)
White Spray ® (floribunda, LeGrice, 1968) the parentage for 'Our Kiera' (Dr. Bruce Chapman x unknown)?
Later edit - on the other hand you may mean pollen or seed from the same White Spray bush that Bruce Chapman grew and used in his breeding. If so, does any other Australian know which one that was?

The hip I used was from the same White Spray bush (or a cutting from that same bush) that Bruce Chapman grew and used in his breeding. I shall check if the owners (Glynis and Doug Haine) of the bush that I received the hip from can help with the parentage question.

Richard Walsh has contacted me and said that you were having problems trying to contact me, I will give you another means of contact, but it is for you only and not for publication.

I have not used my nursery information for some time but want to have the ability to change initial details.

The Glenorie Roses site was set up by Margaret Furness on my behalf a few years ago and was closed due to Kangaroo and Wallaby damage. The property has now been securely fenced so would like to change the initial page rather than disturb Margaret.

Welcome back! I can't delete the bit about wildlife now (or take the apostrophe out of Miniatures), so maybe it wasn't me who set it up. Can't remember back that far.

Ozeboy, I have taken the "closed sign" off the hook and you should now be able to change any details. You might like to update the list of roses you have as well. Send me a Private Message if I can help in any way.

Hello Margaret, great to see you are still on HMF, presume you are well enough to continue the rose hobby.
Don't think we have corresponded since I sent you those 'Mrs BR Cant' sport's from Gary
That's one of the best Tea's I have ever had. Hope your's is doing well, definitely a keeper.

I am compiling an order for HT's, Floribunda's, Modern Climbers and Shrub buds to send to Ruston's. Let's hope they still have a few left. If you visit them over the next couple of months put a good word in for me please.

I let a lot of Heritage roses go as I wasn't fit enough to look after the property and have gone back to getting rid of everything that sticks up in the ground so I can run the mower over the lot to keep it tidy.

Regards, Bruce.

I'm well but the D word (downsize) is looming. I gave Gary's Mrs B R Cant to Werribee, as the status of Ruston's was so uncertain. Best to check with Dianne at Ruston's now, whether they'll still be selling budwood.
I don't know if you'd caught up that Thomas for Roses isn't accepting orders for next winter; they hope to get back into things but the clock is ticking. They might be willing to sell you budwood.
Some semi-old climbers that most people won't know but are well worth growing are Marie Nabonnand, Indian Summer, Cl August Noack, Cl Mme Abel Chatenay. All in the HRAI Collection at Renmark.
