Very White rose?

Posted: 11/08/2015 at 13:25

Send Classic Roses an email DD - I should think it ought to be ok, given that your sunshine is of a more southern quality than ours here in Norfolk (where Classic Roses are) but have a word with them and check.

It is a gorgeous rose - I've not grown it but a friend grew it in a Stately Home type garden where she was Head Gardener and I loved it - the perfume was exquisite and the white 'snowballs' sort of glowed in the low evening light

Yes, it's in most moss killers, or you can buy it as it is from some garden centres or online as a soluble powder.

What is plant

That's a Chaenomeles also known as Japanese  or ornamental quince.

The fruit are inedible raw, but can be used for cooking - they're very good with a pot-roasted pheasant or guinea fowl, and can be used to flavour jellies etc - as with the culinary quince recipes.

If you want to grow a food plant for caterpillars why not grow Hedge Garlic/Jack by the Hedge  - it's pretty and not too invasive and you can eat it ....... and it's the food plant for the caterpillars of the Orange-tip butterfly - one of the first signs of spring

Think that's a more unusual lawn moss called Polytrichum - have a look here

Hope that's helpful
