Hi,
I really would like to buy a David Austin rose called GRACE in Ireland. So I've been to my local large garden and hardware centre (they're nationwide) and they stock six (of a potential 200) David Austin roses - and I asked them to order it for me. The lady was very helpful except that when she rang her supplier they told her that GRACE was last year's rose and that she wouldn't be able to supply it. So the only way I can get this rose is to go on the DA website and order a root specimen which I'm not confident about (have never done this before) or else find someone in Ireland (North or South) who sells GRACE - or else go to England and visit the DA gardens - I'm sorely tempted to do the latter : )
Anyone else have problems tracking down their favourite roses?
Tim

If you are prepared to travel to England then why not try Kildare first dublintimmy.
Johnstown garden centre, they usually have a great selection of David Austin roses

Hi GPI
Thanks for your reply. I've been to Johnstown Garden Centre a couple of times and haven't seen it there. In fact, I've never seen GRACE in the North or South and I'd guess I've visited over 50 garden centres in the last two years.

I have two pink ones and they are beautiful and hardy, withstanding pests and blight much better than most teas and flower very well even if I forget to feed them. Here's a good starting point website. http://www.nurseriesonline.co.uk/mailOrderSpecialist/roses.htm

They were quite a few at Ardnacrusha Garden Center in Limerick, sorry I know its on the other side, and stocks have probably gone by now, but if I am passing, I will see if they have any in stock.

Regards
Protein

Try contacting Springmount Garden Centre just off the N11 near Gorey in Wexford. They have a lot of roses in just now, but not sure if they also stock David Austin roses, wouldn't be at all surprised if they do.
Worth a phone call !
I don't grow roses myself, so apologies for not being more specific
