Will my rose wake up?

Posted: 19/05/2016 at 14:43

Just chipping in to say Bonica is a lovely rose - you'll have no problems with it once it gets going - doesn't seem to get any of the usual lurgies, beautiful foliage, the prettiest clear pink blooms and copes with a few greenfly without any problems.

 I've grown them in three different gardens over the years and they've always come up trumps, covered with beautiful blooms (perfect for cutting too) the whole of the summer.   They look lovely in a vase with some Alchemilla mollis. 

Their only flaw is a weak scent, but I'll forgive that when the rest of the rose is so good.

Yes PD. I didn't always agree with him but I believed that he believed  in what he was saying. I rarely agreed with Thatcher, but the same applied.

They all look very healthy to me.  The one with the 'drooping' leaves isn't drooping - it just has a slightly different way of holding its leaves - different varieties do this.  


ID would be great

Good morning folks 

Virgin have told us that we may be without broadband for a large part of today, so if I disappear you'll know why.

Yesterday went well - the simple day that she wanted (but with a few flourishes to let her know that we're in charge now ).  Thank you all for your kind wishes.  

Now I'll have a read back to see what's been going on .....
