Blooms in November

..very nice too and so frilly... not one I know, but if you like other frilly type roses then you might also enjoy one called 'Fimbriata'.... it's a Rugosa type with a good scent, and disease resistance... an offspring of the better known Mme Alfred Carriere...

..frills add a touch of charm I think..don't you...?

..I was just going to mention that obelixx and was looking for this thread... I notice they do still have a few roses in their exotic garden and others too presumably as they sell some on their website.... this was Mr Lloyd's reputed favourite rose and they still sell it..  being a single it wouldn't be to everyone's taste.   They have a good range of plants...I'm considering ordering a idea what they're like to order from...

..I should add too, that it's this type of historical connection...the original plant came from Vita Sackville-West's garden that makes rose growing so interesting..where you have history and romance in these older roses....

...perennials and exotica can look spectacular but they lack what I call chemistry, ,,,,grace and history that's so often associated with growing roses...

I cannot wait for the first frost

Posted: 15/11/2014 at 17:03 with Susan Porter above... my neighbour never lifts hers and they've been in for years.... on a rockery type area, slightly raised ground... she has fuchsia's too in the same area all winter.... trial and error..

Tree identification

Posted: 15/11/2014 at 16:58 of these I should think, but wouldn't know which, but just to give the correct names...

Malus 'John Downie', 'Red Sentinel' or 'Red Jade'...  if you want to look those up...

^lol..I'd like to have seen that actually..... I once used an upturned large dustbin lid sunk into the ground, couple of stones and it wasn't long before all sorts of things were swimming around in there...
