Posted: 21/05/2014 at 20:26 need to give this rose time... it flowers on wood made the previous year, as you only planted it last year, it probably didn't make enough flowering wood... hence only a couple of roses... it only flowers at early summer... late May/June... you are doing the right thing by training it the way you are....  don't worry about the shade... this rose will happily grow on a north wall..... be patient..

How old are your gardens

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 23:49

...not too old..about 5 years....I like young and fresh.... prefer to see older mature gardens in other people's...less so my own.... always something being rejuvenated...a new planting area....turf out old tired goes something more modern...a better variety of the same plant perhaps...always new ones coming onto the market that catch my's a bit wasteful but as I say I like to keep a fresher look...

..the double, globular flowers, on green stems, suggests Mme. Alfred Carriere, to me... although the foliage could be a little lighter...  I think Busy-Lizzie has this one in her garden, perhaps she could compare....?
