I visited your beautiful Nursery with our daughter Louise, the stealer of your cuttings, last Friday.
We are back in Sydney now and I wondered if you could tell me how tall the weeping roses are. Would I need a ladder to get up to them, they looked very high in the pots. THE Crepuscule rose of my neighbour was only about my height. If it’s not too high our plan is for Louise to bring it up to Gundagai one day to deliver it, so could you please put my name on one.
I so enjoyed our half hour wandering around your beautiful rose farm. I came away with such a euphoric feeling, a bit like visiting something wonderful overseas. I can’t really explain the happy feeling it left, your roses are obviously so loved and cared for, they are really very beautiful and you all seemed so happy doing what you do. A happy place to be.
We arrived home yesterday and today, the sun was shining (!!) and I spent 4 hours out in the garden clearing the rose garden and making room for my 2 new beautiful roses. They are sleeping in their new bed tonight.
Thankyou for providing such a place of joy to visit.
Thank you for the roses which I received yesterday. They were in very good condition and they are the best bare-rooted roses I have ordered this year. I think I will be doing most of my rose shopping from Silkies in the future.
Also, your service was 'lightning fast' and very much appreciated because I thought the roses would be travelling for days and I was worried about them. However, no need to worry.
Great work, Silkies Rose Farm.
All the very best,
