Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

Always reliable, always gorgeous and always perfection! What more could you want from a Rose? (In reality she’s more cream than yellow.) #rose #rose-elina #hybrid-tea-rose #mygardentoday 💚

#foliagefriday Lots of new growth on ‘Elina’ but will the weather be warm enough over the coming weeks to ensure that the buds open? 🤞 #rose #rose-elina #newgrowth #mygardentoday 💚

They do, Elaine, except I’ve now taken most of the new growth out!!! Those secateurs have a mind of their own when it comes to pruning 🤣🤣 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

A closeup of the gorgeous ‘Elina’. She starts out a pale buttery yellow and fades to cream as she ages. #rose #hybridtearose #mygardentoday 10/07/2019

That's beautiful 😍😍 Might need to look out for it online 👍 My rose Peace flowers yellow/pink in high summer and buttery yellow in late summer/early autumn. I sort of prefer her towards the end of the season when it's this buttery yellow colour 😍😍

On this sunny but windy morning my #mondaymotivation was to begin pruning the roses. I always start with ‘Elina’ as she’s a monster and needs a really hard prune. After her the rest are easy! #roses #pruning #springjob #mygardentoday 11/03/2019

I always start off cautiously but then I get braver as I go on, Jane. You can always go back and prune again once they begin to show new growth. I often do that. @pelly

It just seems so brutal, but I know it's got to be done Barbara, I definitely need to take a bit more off. Thanks for the advice @jacaranda Oh, whilst I think about it, should I prune Summer Wine? 🤔🤔

comment
jacaranda

I always prune mine because it’s got really tall and I need to keep it in check. Yours is still quite young so it will depend on how you want to train it. @pelly

One of the last flowers on ‘Elina’ contrasting nicely with the yellowing foliage of the birch in the background. #rose #betula #autumncolour #finalhurrah #mygardentoday 17/10/2018

I pruned this Hybrid Tea rose down to about 80cm in March and it's now almost 2m tall! The flowers are large and beautiful with a light scent and the foliage is always strong and healthy. A great statement #rose in #mygardentoday
