Ps I have to move 3 as I realised 2 are in wrong places, and 1 I just changed my mind where I want it! Planning to move anytime between sept and February as long as no frost, I hope that's right, plan to prune quite hard to move, again, hope that's right!

O.l did you manage to look at handley? a paler pink that I thought was lovely was sharif a asma, times past was a beautiful mid pink very fragranced climber, they don't have as much as d.a or classic roses but they have a fair selection, don' t forget if these cuttings work there's a Gertrude here for you!

when I got 3 from da, they were 3 for £40 and I had a 10 % code too! I'very been happy but I loved handley, it's family run, small, good prices and helpful service, I have 2 more bare roots ordered for winter, may order another too, and 3 from there will be £ 18 or thereabouts , right I must go to bed!

Get Gertrude but get it from handley nurseries it's only £ 7.95 and my Eden rose from there is brilliant, have a look online, they do a fair range

Sorry I was far too busy on my enormous estate to check posts ( sorry couldn't t resist!! ) jolly good David, now sort my st swithun out virtually please!oh no, o. L haven' t opened it yet, bb in habit at the moment of oulling magazine out of my hands and shouting " NO MUMMY!you can' t read about gardening " so haven' t seen it , it'll be dangerous, you know what I'm like! I saw me isaac perriere in a gc while we were away, it smelled divine, a tiny bit deeper pink than I want really but it' s tucked away in my mind ( ok so we all know I'll have forgotten the name by the end if the week! )

A very quick nip in to say hello to everyone, off to bed now as cc waking up 3 or 4 times a night, bb usually climbs in early hours so I' m sandwiched in the middle of 2 wriggly piglets so not all that restful...! O.l, 3 lovely choices, I was planning to use a plastic storage box for a 'cold frame' ! I gave no solace set all, hopefully name getting nearer top if list for allotment..! Hope everyone has a lovely evening night night

Proof it happens to best of us David! My st swithun is behaving strangely, the new growth is all tiny, leaves pinkish very narrow, flowers much smaller, darker, actually a better colour and a better fragrance (!) but totally different to what we've had before, this rose is under the honeysuckle that I sprayed for whitefly with organic bug clear, I did cut off some new growth that was yellow, this is the. 2nd lot of peculiar new growth, could it be the spray?
