Hi pansyface, thanks for the tips. I've looked for buds but can't see any. Whereas my Wollerton Old Hall roses have loads of new buds in the leaf axils. I would give ASL 8/10 for perfume, in comparison with my Munstead Wood roses which get 10/10. WOH has a strong perfume which DA describes as like myrrh, but I would call it citrus. It's a brilliant performer, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the perfume.
