I was staying here June/July, & they always have an "incredible" floral display in their foyer. it was Wimbleon week - & this was their display, using fresh flowers. Does anyone have any idea what these flowers are?  I thought they must be some sort of orchid perhaps ? 

thankyou -

Roses in France

Posted: 16/08/2016 at 08:58

🙋🏼 Hello, can anyone please help with advice in what to do about some rose bushes.  I am in France, near Limoges (inland) visiting my brother for 2 weeks.  He lost his wife last September, and she was the keen "gardener". Almost a year on I find the garden neglected, as my brother (an academic) prefers to collect wine & antique furniture (the house here is now bursting with both!). The large house is 1786, the driveway my sister in law lined with Cypress Trees one side and rose bushes the other (see pics Attached). The Cypress are ok but sadly the roses were neglected during her illness. They  were planted 12 years ago, & always in abundant summer-flower whilst she was tending them. I wondered if they are heavily pruned, watered & fed, can they be saved?  Many are perfumed roses & they will all die & the driveway view will suffer greatly if they are lost! I always feel old roses are especially worth trying to save!  Could they, for eg: be heavily pruned (& when?) given some rose feed, and regularly watered - would they survive?  I could try giving my brother the correct advice - he might follow it (to restore & save the view down the driveway to the property) that's why I would dearly love to know what to do?   (or perhaps you may advise the damage is too far gone already?). thankyou for reading my plea for help!  Tads
