Wilson Roses - 1216 Farnborough Road - Yeppoon Qld 4703

 
The July Outing for U3A Rockhampton saw 27 members visit Wilson Roses on Farnborough Road Yeppoon.
While George worked away collecting flowers his partner Louise took us all for a tour of the intriging setup of three hydroponic rose and gerbera hot houses.
 
 
After trying their hand at various other businesses, the Wilsons sailed up the east coast of Australia looking for a port to call home. The weather at yeppoon was a drawcard and after a tour of the local area they decided to stay and set up their dream farm to grow hydroponic roses and gerberas.
They now sell direct retail with very reasonable delivery to locals in the Rockhampton region.
   
Our U3A members were sorry that they couldnt buy a rose plant but they were surprised how the stock of roses is controlled and the quality of flowers that are produced. The gerberas were so strong and healthy and George said that they produce flowers in the hothouse all year round
   
Open to the public and open 7 days a week I'm sure some of our members will go back again.
Louise put together a floral arrangement which was raffled and won by Nancy Crapp
   
Roses growing all year round in a controlled environment of temperature and moisture and a magic mix of coconut fibre and fed by hydroponics and specially filtered local water and plant food
