I am Salila Bryant. I live in New Zealand. I am an organic gardener and rosarian. I have a vast collection of roses and other flowering plants that I love to take care of. We have recently bought lifestyle block where we are going to build our retirement home. I am propagating plants for our future garden, particularly old roses. My intension is to have a nursery for old roses.
I love old roses, because of their resistance to diseases and fragrance. Roses in New Zealand are very expensive. I try to grow plants from cuttings. My roses are grown among vegetables. I am working full time, I have very little time for gardening, Yet I manage to maintain my garden quite well. All my vegetables and flower garden is maintained organically. We make our own compost year round. When it comes to hard work, my husband helps me. I cant imagine a life without my roses, books and camera.
