Celebrating 25 years
The Swiss Rose Garden Nursery grew out of the passion of Ruedi and Vivienne Etter who began producing rose plants commercially in 1978. Ruedi is a qualified horticulturist who has experience in all aspects of rose growing and together with his wife Vivienne and staff established the Swiss Rose Garden Nursery in Brookdale/Armadale in Perth’s southern suburbs in 1984.
Each year we produce more than 20,000 rose plants for garden centres and the public. All of our roses are grown on Fortuneana root stock which enables them to be grown in almost any garden with great success.
Unlike many wholesale rose growers, we produce all stock at our nursery and do all bud grafting ourselves. We can bud many difficult to locate varieties (providing they are not a commercially protected variety) and can bud to order.
Rose Planting Guide
As a rose specialist, we are proud to stock more than 600 varieties of roses including hybrid tea roses, florabunda roses, miniature roses, climbing and rambling roses, ground cover roses, heritage roses, standard roses and DA English roses, one of the largest selections in Western Australia.
Our roses are known for their hardiness because they are grown using Fortuneana rootstock, which develops a very strong root system in any soil type in Western Australia. It is proven to outlast all other commonly used rootstocks in our sandy soil types.
