The bench is made from woody roots as far as I understand, have had it for 9/10 years and treat it with oil. The rose is interesting; bought it for £1 from Morrisons in January, 'House Plant' guaranteed to flower for 3 weeks. I could not bear to bin it after that and the flowers were a bit of a mess frankly. So, potted it on (there are really about 5 tiny rose plants there), hardened it off for several weeks in March and hey presto - the flowers are now really healthy and maintaing their structure, which they weren't doing as MISERABLE OUT OF SEASON HOUSE PLANTS. Sorry to shout, but really how could they do this to roses? Stuff several into a tiny pot and force them to flower in January?
