 “My last order of roses took much longer to arrive than before.  I was really worried as they had been posted on a Thursday, but did not arrive until the following Monday week; 12 days later, (no doubt dear Covid has struck again).  When I opened the box, I found the roses had been packed so well you would think they had just been sent the day before.  They were moist with very healthy new growth/shoots.  Well done Silkie Gardens Rose Farm, you do an incredible job of packing and sending your roses.  It is plain to see that you care a great deal about your roses, clients, and your business reputation.”


I received my 12 bare-rooted roses scarcely 8 weeks ago wonderfully packed and beginning to produce shoots. After 24 hours in a bucket of seaweed mix, they were planted into pots.

Following the recommended feeding regimen, all my roses have wonderfully healthy foliage and are smothered in buds. My “Casanova” has just bloomed.

It just goes to show you that top quality stock, and following Silkies Eco care regimen, produce huge results!

I just love your newsletter. I haven’t bought anything from you in a while but I love reading your newsletters. They are fun and uplifting and an inspiration to me for the RFS (Rural Fire Service) community engagement newsletters I write.

Hi Silkies

I have to say a big thank you after having received my rose order today, it arrived In great condition and will be flowering in no time. I have moved from Euroa to Queensland but I had no hesitation ordering from you as I have purchased from you before and know that your product is first class.

Once again thank you - Regards - Glenda S

Thank you Diana. 

Your roses are very special 

Thanks for this update. You’re doing a great job bringing joy to the masses. Cheers - Anita


Hi Diana,

I received my german made secateurs, thankyou.    Tried them out today and they are beyond fantastic.  To think of all the money I have wasted on inferior secateurs over many years.  The only ones I have ever liked prior were some from Aldi a few years ago but they have never had the same ones since.

Loooove my new ones thankyou..., and being such a bright colour means they have less chance of being composted.  Regards, Christine


Dear Diana and Graham,

What an efficient pair you are!!! Last Monday I ordered 2 Mutabilis roses from you and to my surprise they arrived in excellent order today, being Thursday. I appreciate the effort you go to, to satisfy your customers. They are now soaking in some seaweed solution ready for planting. Well done, and thank you.  Lyn.


Dear Silkies Rose Farm,

I would like to thank you ever so much for your prompt attention to my order of roses.

They are perfect; just what I wanted.

I would like to make a special thanks to the very kind person who delivered the roses to my door! I had expected that I would pick them up from your farm but you have gone above and beyond and delivered them to my door even though I had not paid for delivery!!

Thanks Heaps,  Maureen B


Thank you - My roses arrived in superb condition

You have inspired me to get back to looking after my roses after your talk in Corowa a few weeks ago .

My rose garden will be also thanking you now l am back to focusing on feeding them looking forward to lovely roses again.


Hi Diana and Gra,

Thank you for your very prompt response and delivery of my rose order that I received yesterday. The quality of the roses is to be commended, they look as though they are ready to jump out of their skin. Looking forward to their beautiful blooms. One very happy customer!

I have bought from you in the past by phone order as well as your book, All about Roses, Diana.

Thanking you once again,

Kind Regards, Dorothy


To the dedicated Rose Team,

Congratulations Di and Gra (and Mooi) on assembling such a delightful “working bee”. I am sure you all work hard but happily - and I feel that transmits to the roses. We know that our roses come from a happy home and will settle happily into our gardens. (I am an environmental psychologist.) 

Thank you,  Nadia x


Hi Diana

I just wanted to say thank you. Our roses arrived last week in excellent condition. I couldn’t believe how cleverly and carefully they had been packed! After soaking in seaweed overnight we planted in our new sunny rose garden and they all seem to be doing very well. 

I also wanted to say that I really enjoy reading your weekly emails. Best of luck digging out the remaining roses in this wet weather. 

Best,  Mae


Hi Diana,

I have had such a wonderful day as my parcel arrived safely this morning. Thank you for sending such healthy roses, they are in the ground ready for the rain tonight! The parcels you send are way more fun than Christmas

Dear Graham & Diana,

Just a little note to let you know that I received your beautiful roses today, all meticulously packaged for their journey across Melbourne, and arrived in perfect condition.

They are now all put to "bed", (the garden bed that is) while they slumber for a couple  more months, and I really look forward to their emerging beauty & fragrance in spring.

Thank you both so much!!!

Kind regards Georgia  


Morning Diana,

The roses just arrived, thank you.  What lovely, strong and healthy plants they are too.... I even received a complimentary strong healthy earthworm in the bit of soil. 

Beautiful, thanks so much.  Helen the happy.
