Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We took a break from NGS openings in 2021/22 but we’ll be back in 2023!

Here’s a closeup of ‘Elina’. She’s not quite as yellow as in the photo, more of a rich cream! #rose #rose-elina #upclose #mygardentoday 💚

Yesterday, along with five other gardens, we opened our garden for a ‘Gardening Club Members Open Gardens’ afternoon. Although it was windy the sun shone and all the visitors enjoyed the event. Rosa ‘Elina’ put on a wonderful show and she was one of the most admired and talked about plants. It was hard work getting the garden ready but it was well worth the effort! #rose #rose-elina #opengarden #gardeningclub 💚

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? 🤔🤔

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
