I have lovely wild ones growing on the banks that get huge orange hips in the autumn but I don't count those as garden roses.

verdun, flattery will get you everywhere or are you just after some of my Agastache plants? 

Hosta, once she goes outside she is on a slippery slope, I think we are just to damp and windy here for them. 

What is this pesky plant/weed/tree?

you can buy it in a small spray bottle ready mixed, just spray on. It takes a while and it will probably need doing  again.

Wel, I am bored, bl***y bored! I have nothing to do, it's poured with rain since I don't know when, I have  no compost for potting on, I have no car to go and get some.

I could do housework, but well who wants to do that. Thinking of doing some filing, come April I will wish I had.

It's feed day for the baskets and tubs, no point in that, so roses, mmmm........ Let's take it out on them!

I love all the colour clashes, mines like that, described as an explosion in a paint factory.

Whatever you do, you need to get the dreaded things out, dig, glyphosate anything

I must say I agree with Verdun.  For me roses just don't grow well, they say they are not good in clean air, preferring town gardens. Thats very true for me, or it could be an altitude problem.

After taking that 20ft thing down yesterday, I am ripped to bits, right through clothing and thick gloves,  it only blooms once, then you have miles of fungus ridden green for the rest of the year. 

They don't even grow them at Rosemoor like they used to, I think because of the fungus problems. More suited to hot dry areas, my cousin in Australia grows beauties.

In spite of that, I still have to stick bits in the ground every year to do cuttings!
