Quite shocked today to discover that David Austin Roses, UK, appear to have removed over 200 roses from their UK inventory, including some well known favourites like Munstead Wood, Lady Emma Hamilton, Jude The Obscure, plus many Old Rose varieties and species.

Other notable Austins gone are Darcey Bussell, Graham Thomas, A Shropshire Lad, and Crown Princess Margareta.. etc..

A sign of the times unfortunately..

There are many roses which they declare "not on stock" as container rose or as bare root. Some of these might be just sold out for the season. Let's see what is available in spring.

I'm afraid it's not a question of them not being in stock, as it states on the individual page ''we no longer sell....'' and the page for that rose is ''archived''..

Before the pandemic they said they would be downsizing considerably, so it seems this has now occurred..

That seems to be the case on the UK website of Austin. The continental website says e.g. for 'Munstead Wood' "out of stock" and the US website offers it for $ 32 (delivery 2023). ??
We will delete the archived roses gradually from the listing of David Austin UK. (About 43% in A to D, mostly OGRs.)

I assume there would be other growers who would continue to offer these out of patent roses in the UK.

Brenda Viney

I have a really nice ‘Brenda Viney’ rose from Brad Jalberts select roses. I’d love to upload some pictures of it.

I tried to look it up on the Jalbert website (British Columbia), and got nowhere. Do you have more information about it - breeder, when released, class, colour?

Dmitri Hvorostovsky

https://www.selectroses.ca/order/p/dmitri-hvorostovsky

"A strong, upright growing, long stem, very winter hardy rose, with lush highly disease resistant foliage. Fragrance is a pleasing soft tea rose: delicate but noticeable. It’s well suited to cutting, and is an elegant free-standing shrub or small climber. Easy care. Grows to about five feet depending on pruning. We are working with growers in other parts of the world to bring this rose to Dmitri’s fans and admirers."

Added, thank you! Do you know whether the nursery Dorieux is closed?

Temporarily closed
In any case his domain name (WEB) has expired (curious not to have renewed the purchase).
