p30. G. A. Williams, Runcorn, Queensland. Understocks in Queensland. Queensland’s noted breeder, Fred Armbrust, has made a good start on understock breeding and has several crosses, some of them suggested by the writer. However, of course, results will be a long time hence. From a long friendship with Mr. Armbrust, I should imagine he has the understock question right at heart and will do his best to produce what we want here at any rate.

1966, June. Queensland Garden,
p11. Back in 1955 at his home at Blackwood Rd., Michelton, he found he was unable to produce exhibition blooms because the poor type of soil defied all attempts to improve it. At a last resort he turned to rose hybridizing, after having gained information on the subject from Mr. Cec. Homan, the then treasurer of the Rose Society. …..Since moving to Pascoe St., Mitchelton where the soil is better, Mr. Armbrust has started hybridizing again, and is working along very definite lines which promise great things in the future.
