DavidK and Busy-Lizzie, can you recommend anywhere I can order The Pilgrim? At the moment I can only find it in bare root from which means I won't get it until Nov this year onwards and would really love to get hold of it now... . I have googled, but would rather go on a recommendation in terms of a supplier/retailer. Is it known by any other name at all? Thanks

Rose - I was in that rose garden only yesterday! I have p messaged you!!

Hope you don't mind me sharing again but the 'Champagne Moment' rose I shared yesterday has fully bloomed and I thought you might like to see it

Hi DavidK, yup, already found the David Austin one and was resigned to the fact you can't force nature to do what you want before the time is right . I have taken on board what you have said about bare-root roses and will order a couple very shortly. I know it will be well worth the wait having seen all the lovely pics everyone has already shared. Again, I must thank you for starting this thread; I have been inspired by everyone on here to enjoy my garden and go for what I want it to become. I can't thank you all enough

...if you're interested in obtaining a container grown rose of The Pilgrim, then I recommend the following nursery... I ordered from them last summer and on other occasions and they couldn't be faulted... all their roses are container grown but you have to email or phone them first to confirm availability and prices...

Hi Salino, thanks, I'll take a look

Tina I was in rose garden. Yesterday, when the wedding party was there, you'd recognise me, I' m the one constantly calling" slow down, be careful, don' t go out of my sight!"

hi David.... I know, they've got a lot of roses listed but as it's correctly known as The Pilgrim you'll find it under 'T' as they have their 'The's' under T starting with Tess of the d'urbervilles...

...they usually have these in stock...it's one of the best nurseries in the country and I've visited it many times too....they grow their roses in big containers - all good sized plants... Mr Chapman also let's you know what condition the rose is in...whether it's well grown...got black spot... any flowers showing... that sort of thing...before you confirm ordering...

 

oops..crossed....that's ok then...

Salino

..Champagne Moment is just gorgeous NG.... I can see why you're pleased with it... not a rose I know personally...

Salino

yes..that one and Generous Gardener have been on my list along with some others already mentioned, but I have to narrow it down to 2 and I want shorter growing ones this time.... I think that one is a climber...so perhaps not for me right now...

I've been looking at Shropshire Lad also; comes as a climber or (tall) shrub (about 5ft).
