White roses going pink?

Posted: 10/06/2012 at 22:33

A friend that is a great rose grower told me once if the rose is stressed it will change colour.The Mary rose she had should be white but on the same plant it had pink flowers as well, it flowered white the next year.

Need to improve soil what's best?

Id love a hedgehog to move in too but dont know what our two wee terriers would say!
