Thanks Rachel, I was getting worried I'd done something wrong @rachelbrooks 😊😊😊

Mines the same and it's annoying when you only have one or two blooms. We won't notice it like Rachel @rachelbrooks says when its bursting (hopefully) with flowers 👍

I doubt it Jane! 👍🏼And you won't Sue - although you'll know when Iceberg is losing its flowers...my lawn is full of petals! @susanhumphrey333

As a newbie to proper gardening it wasn't what I expected. It's really upset me. The blooms are white and are supposed to be pink. I expected better from David Austin @susanhumphrey @rachelbrooks 😕😕😕

Aww it's a shame you're not happy with it Jane. Again a few of mine (and I'll go on about Lady S again!) start off one colour (quite a deep pink in her case) and end up much paler (almost white) I think a lot of the older roses tend to do that. But you said you'd emailed them so I am sure they will replace it for you. Let us know what they say 👍🏼

I will Rachel, I'm probably expecting too much in its first year, but as I said earlier, this was the one thing I wanted to do well. Hey ho, onwards and upwards @rachelbrooks 😊😊😊

Thanks all, I am beyond happy, even though I've never been much of a gardener for most of my life, and certainly never had roses, this is a defining moment for me.... @vec @jendren @nessas @rachelbrooks @Keely @Jasonsparkes1 💖💖💖

I've been a bit wary of them Julie, but I sent for the David Austin catalogue and just fell in love with this one. It was a birthday present from our youngest daughter along with Susan Williams Ellis 😍😍😍

Thanks Angie, I've never grown roses before and my daughter bought me two David Austin ones for my birthday (my choices though) and I thought this was just beautiful, I have Susan Williams Ellis too, but she's much smaller at the moment @ada31514 😍😍😍

Jane I have a few David Austin. A yellow Golden celebration. Winchester cathedral which is white. Lady of shallot which is orangey tones and a few other roses that I've bought in sales. A lovely coral one but I don't know what it's called and a red help for heroes one

Yay, I have leaves on my first ever rose. I have had a wonderful day in the garden potting up some seedlings, tying in Clematises and Jasmine and generally doing the little jobs that needed doing and I haven't got round to doing. Time to relax now with a nice glass of wine. 😃😃😃💚

Oh dear Angie, I'm still such a beginner at all this so my answer is I don't know. I got this one and another one for my birthday from one of my daughters from David Austin. They are both old fashioned roses so I assume they will have. @angiecrazycatlady 🤔🤔🤔

The old fasioned ones smell lovely. I'm sure you'll do great with them, they are actually quite easy to grow, give them a rose feed now and in July and keep watered that's all there is to it 😆
