Is it happening as we speak?

Is the Genetically Manipulated Rose trial already underway? Are Australian Roses in Silvan making sure there is no gene flow from the rose, no insects coming and going from their greenhouse?

How will the gene flow be controlled from an outside compost heap? What will happen to the compost? Will it be disposed of? How are contamination issues being handled?

Have you been able to find ut if the trials have started? I have repeatedly asked the OGTR this and other questions and have received no reply - this despite the promise on their website to answer all queries within 48 hours.

Last I heard (2 weeks ago) the roses were still in a warehouse in the city but it's very hard to get an answer to that question. If this trial is so benign, as the OGTR and Florigene would have us believe, why all the mystery?

It seems as if the roses will be coming to the Shire in July. Watch this space.....
