Hi does anyone have experience with these Brindabella roses - Apricot Gem, Goldie and Peachy? I'm making big decision as to which to buy.
Thanks All

Hi Sunflower,

I don’t have experience in growing Brindabella roses (Apricot Gem, Goldie and Peachy) but can only suggest three things.
1. Whether an empty lot or a pot, make sure to have some space for your roses to grow. (sn)
2. Get them sunshine at least 6 hours per day. (#)
3. Water them regularly. (st)

As you do this, I'm pretty sure whatever roses you have, they're off for a healthy start.

apricot gem is not a flash rose. Perfume quality is not high and plenty of blooms but not of show quality ones

I have six roses from here two topiary which have done very well in north qld first thing i notice they are not like any other rose.
Firstly the leaves stay on the plant unlike most other roses grown up here that seem to defoliate but flower.
Second i use Black Marvel fertilizer which is amazing for growth and flowers. :D

I have Goldie and it is just beautiful. Love the Brindabella roses.
