#favouriteflower I love this rose for it's colour, scent and memories of spending late afternoons on the patio with my family round me and the banter that always happens 😊😊😊😍

Hi @waterlily it's called Falstaff a rigorous growing Rosa Regosa (quite dense and thorny) it reaches about 2m high and a spread of about the same though it can be hard pruned. Oh and it's beautifully old rose scented and double flowering 😀😀👍

Amazing! Thank you @jpea! I'll definitely keep my eye out for one. How long have you had it? 😊

This house, about a year but in the old house it had been there before we moved there and lived in it for 14 years, too big to dig out and take with me too memorable to not replace it 😊

Just a tip, do not it prune it for about 3 years so it has a better chance to develop new canes and better blooms. I made a terrible mistake of pruning the woody canes after the 1st year and it didn't produce new ones that year 😟 Only had 2 blooms in the summer and 2 more now.

Thanks @ublaszko I usually only prune very likely for 3 or 4 years keeping the centres open and clear of canes. Yours will get back to full vigor in a couple of years

I'm happy to have visited David Austin roses today and met a lovely lady there who took the time to really understand what I want and help me select roses for the new borders, this will be one. Delivery is November so will now dig in the manure and compost in prep 😬😊😌

Morning ladies @jaynehynesburton @Keely @pelly I'm looking forward to them arriving in November so I'm going to prepare each of the 5 spots by digging in old manure, compost and possibly some leaf mulch. Luckily never grown roses in the spots so they should have a good start 🙏
