I love love the colour of this rose, it’s practically luminous when it first opens! Photos don’t do the colour justice 🥰😍 #rose #rose-tequillasunrise #pink #blooms

@bentobox can see the ombré but reds and oranges never photograph true. Gorgeous nonetheless 😍😍😍

@kez001uk that’s true, the deep red ones I have are also beautiful but the red looks totally different in the photo ☺️🌹

Another lovely pink/peachy rose, I’m thinking of trying to move this one, it’s randomly in the middle of the grass, or pot it up... I haven’t done a good job of caring for this one! The leaves have those black spots on! #rose #pink-rose #advice-blackspot #blackspot #advice-rose

Make a spray of milk with water and spray. Seems to have worked for me so far! 👍🏼

The black spots is a fungal or bacterial disease called black spot 😊 Use the milk spray from early spring next year and you'll be able to avoid it altogether. As per moving the rose, you could instead cut into the lawn and make a border around the rose with more space for flowers and colour 😉 I'm always surprised that we cram plants around the fences and then leave all this space in the middle 😁😁😁
