Most of my roses came from David Austin roses although some are from cuttings.
My favourite plant of all time... Stunning!ReplyDelete
Your collection of roses always impresses me, Joanne! Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Such beautiful roses. Thank you for sharing your photo's of your beautiful garden. Sadly, although I am just the other side of Guildford from you, roses do not grow in my garden - nor do delphiniums.ReplyDelete
An amazing assortment! Thank you for sharing with us all.ReplyDelete
How on earth do you remember all their names?
Thank you. I have a plan and record of all roses plus all clematis. This blog serves as a useful reminder for me too.ReplyDelete
Hi, I hope you can help me,I dont know what to do about my Veilchenblau rose.This rose is rather Wide perhaps 41/2 feet( I live in Michigan are roses dont get as large as yours) I see roses blooming within the rosebush however there are canes growing all around that come up from the ground, I dont know if these are suckers or if this is the way Veilchenblau grows, Should I prune this canes out? Thank you for any help.ReplyDelete
Ive been to your town twice, love it you are a lucky gal
Hi Debra Veilchenblau grows much wider than you say I stop mine off at about two meters in either direction and keep loosely fastened left and right with not much allowed to grow forwards or back( against wall). They way I prune is of the new long shoots that come either from the ground or from existing growth, I leave what I want for structure and to replace old structure ( which is not much compared with all new shoots) I prune what I don't want. I also prune back after flowering all flower heads to the main shoot. In the Autumn I also prune out any unwanted growth.Delete
All ramblers I prune this way it is quite a task but otherwise they are very unruly.
"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" Great post, so many beautiful roses. Mine have had their first flush and I am now waiting for the second showing. Thank you for sharing yours with me :)ReplyDelete
Some stunning colours and some really healthy roses here. Just makes me even more sad at this time of year. As a flower lover, I cant stand the site of dead gardens and falling leaves. Late spring/early summer is the best time of the year, everyone is out in the garden making it look as lovely as possible. Best time of the year by far.ReplyDelete
