I like that rose,put that on my wanted list. What a lovely garden you have.I think the scent of flowers ,roses in particular are essential for the garden.

I have the same problem by the side of the house ,some one has built a extension that looks like a toilet block and I have to look at it.I am hoping to get him to  grow a clematis Montana up it ,one its quick and looks good and you can clip it into shape and I will have something nicer to look at but I suspect I will have to put some trellis up and do it my my self.

well,if you take a few leaves that are not affected you may grow some more,its sad when you lose a plant but do try and see if you can bring it in leave it alone for awhile and who knows it might come true.sometimes it does.

This one I have saved a few times from fate mainly over watering or draughts but I have many replacements they are easy to do although it takes time to get big.hope yours heals.

no,but it sounds interesting,I am madly trying to grow the common type in pots now as the slugs get them if i grow them in the border.But changing the subject,at the hospital near me they have a beautiful foxglove tree,amazing flowers on it when it blooms.
