I bought a Lady EH on Monday and ave just potted her up to grow strong set of roots while we get the new rose bed sorted out for planting. I also have Summer Song from a spring order which included Fighting Temeraire, The Lark Ascending,, William Shakespeare plus The Pilgrim, Malvern Hills and Lady of the Lake. I brought with me Geoff Hamilton, Munstead Wood, Scarborough Fair and Jacqueline Du Pré which I had in pots. I also brought a Breathless Charm which has Graham Thomas as a parent.
Just before we left our Belgian garden I took some last minute cuttings and most have taken so today I potted on 2 Teasing Georgias, 3 Queen of Sweden, 1 Graham Thomas and 3 more whose name had washed off their pot. One pot failed completely and its name was washed off too so I shall just have to wait and see what I have.
I love David Austin roses for their perfume, their flower form, whether singles or complex, and their disease resistance.
