Visit to changa nursery.

Post by muhammad umer » December 7th, 2013, 10:39 pm

today i visited changa nursery and spent the day chatting with haji ibrahim.i ended up buying 85 roses. about 29 varieties. and am uploading a list of names of varieties and number of plants,
Inshasllah in morning will have them all in the ground and also plan on potting some bushes for my window. ibrahim sb recommended 2 parts moti sand(from ravi) 2 parts nalay wali bhal and one part kumola khaad( ojri wali khad one yr old) this mixture he said would be good for potted roses.

All the dear members and rose enthusiasts are welcome to take their pick from my list , you can easily come and get it from my home. happy gardening.

Hi.

Sir it so happens that I preferred only grafted ones with high petal count and strong fragrance. Instant gratification .
Ibrahim sb had no standards told to wait for march. I didnt visit any other nursrery.
He is a great man. He committed on phone 35 to 100 and all d.a. are 35. He stood by his word.
Very cheap and best quality and original plants. His double delight bloom is so big that I was surprised. I paid 100 each for d.d. happily.
California dreamin is another treasure I found. And u cant see it on screen. Its atleast 7 inch diameter or more very doll like .
I potted 35 roses outside my window in the potting mix advised by haji sb.
About 50 or so I planted in a new narrow bed in front of old bed. About foot apart each plant.
The best part is the very very delicate fragrance which is lingering in my lawn and it changes along with the times of day

Inshaallah .

My lawn faces north . That means no sunlight whole winters. And burning sun in summers. To counter this I have potted some and placed them in sunlight. So I can enjoy these treasures in winters also.
Please feel free to take any rose which you like from my new plants.
