Sorry no roses but here are some winter flowers. It has been a lovely and warm spring-like day. However tomorrow it will turn cold again with freezing temperatures and cold east wind, snow warnings for Sunday. It has all become very boring, all the shops will be emptied needlessly of various food stuffs yet again. But, I don't mind sacrificing some of the flowers, the camellia flowers that are opened certainly will be ruined. With great excitement I have just taken delivery of a parcel from Trever White Roses.

Very nice Andrew, I like the mixture of colours. I wish winter would just go away.

I need to order two of the Harelan (gift of life) rose bushes.

How do I do that?

Would it be possible, please, for one of the HMF bigwigs to go through the Welt-der-Rosen website and ensure that all roses that it lists are represented on HMF?

And, if possible, it would be helpful to know the contact details of the HMF person to whom I should suggest other roses be added to the database.

I hear that the hmf volunteers are few in number and overstretched. It would be preferable for you to suggest to the nursery that they establish and maintain their plant list on hmf.
Anyone can add new roses to hmf, via Rose listing omission, but I gather it makes it easier for the volunteers if descriptions, breeder codes and photos are supplied.
Best wishes.

Thank you Margaret. Well said.

Thank you - that's helpful, at least for nurseries. But what nurseries that no longer exist? And sites like Welt der Rosen that are maintained by knowledgeable individuals? And roses raised by amateurs that find their way into commerce? I suggest that HMF should consider where the weaknesses in its coverage are most conspicuous and try to priorise the options for action.

Roses can be added via the Missing Plant option, under Plants on the left-hand menu of the main screen.

.....But what nurseries that no longer exist?

That is one other way you could help, Charles. We could add a listing for something like
Joe Bloggs Nursery – 1930 Historic Archive

We could then link you with this Nursery file and you could either
Add their roses, one by one.
Or add their roses in one typed listing . There are more instructions for adding a listing here:

For a long time now, Ive found this website to be extremely slow in loading anything, especially when searching for roses. long delays for pages to load etc. Very frustrating especially since I'm a paying member. Does this site need more server space to run efficiently?

I don't have that problem but lack the computer competence to explain yours. Maybe a browser issue?
