    What does it mean when a Rose grower retires a Rose

    Good morning well David Austin is always using the word "Retiring" Roses the reason being just think of the quint essential English garden and a rose will invariably spring to mind. Their sweet scent and plush petals have long been prized by gardeners, but now some of the most beloved varieties are being retired by growers due to climate breakdown and pests.Though their use in gardens is thought to have originated in China and Iraq, for hundreds of years they have been a prize bloom across England.David Austin and other's have said they have had to retire some of their most well-loved species because they are no longer practicable to grow.As well as flower quality, selection has always been influenced by resistance to diseases such as black spot and powdery mildew. As the climate has changed rapidly over the last few years, especially wet mild springs and hot dry summers, these diseases have become more damaging. This is partly due to the fact that rose plants are less suited to the new climatic conditions so more susceptible to disease.”:smile:

    Pests also thrive in the muggier conditions brought to England by the climate emergency. “The humid conditions in spring also suit the biology of the fungal pests themselves. This has meant that plant breeders have had to put a greater emphasis on disease resistance by introducing genes (through hybridisation) from more disease resistant plants. These are often the more wild types of rose that have a natural disease resistance. It also means that some varieties (including some old favourites) are now too disease prone to be viable.”:smile:

      Hi rose lovers of GC, some lovely roses on previous years' threads. Nice ones on this thread too but I am trying to ignore them as I am currently on a strict diet!

      I am a refugee rose lover from GW, although I have been a member here for a while as well.

      Back on GW we also had a yearly rose thread which was very busy. In fact recently we have had two, one for Spring/Summer and one for Autumn/Winter. We did a lot of chatting as well as posting pictures.

      Would you be happy for us to contribute to this thread, or would you prefer us to start a new one?

            My roses in France are off to a good start, ahead of the ones in OH's garden in Norfolk. We arrived back in France on Thursday.
            Aspirine, Happiness and Astronomia.

                I did a pruning and rose care workshop at Petter Beales Classic Roses in February I was always a bit nervous of pruning although I've been doing it a long time. I found it very useful. They prune a lot. It was very wet.

                  Lovely foliage @Busy-Lizzie, yours are further along than mine. I worry about pruning too but most of my roses have only been planted in the last 6 months so mainly leaving them to settle in at the moment.
