HI Jan, it says you have Celestial NIght. IF you are familar with this purple rose I have a question. I just got this rose and am wondering how tall it gets. I'm trying to place it in my garden and coming across conflicting information on it's height (7 ft from one site, 4 ft here) and would love to have a better idea of where it should go in my garden.
Thanks,
Joan

I got mine last year --- it is in a pot waiting to be transplanted into the ground. It's not that big yet but the blooms are simply beautiful. I do not know how big it will ultimately grow.

Yes, I will contact Burlington Nursery to make arrangements to have 5-6 Grandmere Jenny's propagating the Grandmere Jennys. If you have Berolina, Chondos Beauty, Love's Promise, Royal Dane, Gruss an Teplitz, Dame de Coeur, Grace de Monaco I will gladly pay you for the cuttings (I need 4-5 of each ) and I will make arrangements with Burlington Nursery to propagate them. That way these vintage roses will still be available to the public. If you do not have these roses but know where to find them , there is a rose society in California that has auctions each year, you might try there. I will pay for each rose cutting.

Right now my rose garden is in a state of disorder. I have been having health problems (knees) and haven't given it the time it needs. This Fall I will order in a crew to take out all of the weeds and prune the roses that have survived our water problems. The Irrigation System that services us has once again had problems with their old pipes and my roses have suffered for the second year in a row. This time it was only a month without water last year it was two months. It always happens during the hottest months when the earth dries out and cracks --cracking the concrete pipes. will let you know which of the roses I have when I get thru with the pruning. I do know that I have Chandos Beauty.

Hello:
I am looking for Grandmere Jenny. If you still grow this rose could you possibly root 4 cuttings for me? I am willing to pay $15 for each rooted cutting and will also pay for shipping. Thank you. Margaret Lamb

I really do not have the facilities to root cuttings. When I want cuttings rooted, I usually send them out to either Berling Leong or one of the members of our rose society that is willing to do it.

Hello:
If I buy cuttings can I just mail them to this Nursery and they'll root the cuttings for me?

I certainly would not charge you for the cuttings. You need to call Berling and talk to her about rooting cuttings. If it is OK with her, then I would send her the cuttings.

Hello:
Do you have Grandmere Jenny? If you do and are able to take four or five cuttings, I will be sure to contact this nursery and make arrangements to have the cuttings rooted. Thank you for answering my question.

Actually Berling has Grandmother's Hat listed as for sale at her nursery. Woops, I looked up the wrong rose. I need to find my Grandmere Jenny rose and make sure she is OK. I lost some roses last year during the drought when the main irrigation pipe that services our place broke. We did not have water for August and September. Only the hardy survived. I found out which roses were drought tolerant.

Woops wrong rose . Berling does not grow Grandmere Jenny. I will have to find my Grandmere Jenny rose and make sure that it survived. I lost roses during last year's drought when the main irrigation pipe that services our place broke and we didn't have water for August and September.
