Desperately Seeking Delicata

Salisbury, United Kingdom

Cannot find this rose in the UK. Does anyone have any ideas how I can get one from the USA?

They are absolutely my favorite rose nursery!

Thank you for a reply. I have already tried them, but it's so cost-prohibitive for them to ship internationally, they don't do it anymore. Too much paperwork, forms, certificates, etc. I'm x-ing my fingers that I'll find someone on this forum who might be able to send me cuttings. I'm not sure seed would work.

I did a search in Help Me Find and see that someplace called Mottisfont Abbey in Hampshire lists Delicata as part of their rose line-up. Maybe you could get cuttings from them? It is supposed to be a public garden. Sounds like a road trip! =D

Terri... thanks ever so much for the posting. Although I have searched and searched, I can't find any rose lists at Mottisfont. HOWEVER -- and this is so cool -- it's only 10 miles down the road from me! It's pretty early here, still, so will call them later today. Looks like a place to visit no matter what. I'll let you know what I discover.

That's fabulous - leave it to Terri! Good luck, Panamus, with your search.

Blush! I am on auto-research sometimes =D! Old habbits die hard.

There are far worse habits to have! Very funny!

Terri... Donna...Wooo-hoooo!!! Could I ask for more?? The Head Gardener at Montissfont is going to send me several cuttings in early spring, when they do their pruning. Is that not amazing? I didn't even need to go there (although I intend to when it's fully open in season). I called, they were all very helpful, suggested I email the HG, which I promptly did, and he replied within an hour. This is one of those amazing 'feel-good' stories. Haven't stopped smiling for 24 hours (and don't intend to).

Thank you both. A kiss for each of your cheeks.

This is absolutely wonderful. I think this is the result of your enthusiasm and charm.

Thank you for the kiss!
