Derek Scholte was out of town when the notorious 2011 floods hit his farm. When he returned to his sodden land, he set his jaw firm, cleaned up the mess, rebuilt the farm, and got on with growing his sought-after roses. Every sleeve of his roses is proudly labelled ‘Grown in Grantham’; and Derek is committed to the area he lives in. Today, Tamor Roses stands once again as testament to the resilience and determination of the Queensland farmer. His clean, well-organised rose farm stands again, producing a huge amount of sought-after spray roses from a tiny tunnel space. The varieties are specially-chosen to withstand Lockyer Valley heat, and are regularly changed to keep up with trends in colour fashion. Right now, stripes are out and brights are in. Tamor Roses recently won the Lockyer Valley Sustainable Producer Award, after 3 years in a row as runner up.
