And the Iceberg is really going for it too! Always love this, but am really loving the blooms this time...maybe as I don't normally get them this late and it's a very welcome bonus! 💚 #latebloomer

Oh no Cynthia 😔 Why? What's up with it? I don't know if this is flourishing because we cut it right down a couple of years ago... Seems to have taken off in a big way! 🤔 @clustyroen

@rachelbrooks I have never had much luck with roses Rachel, must be doing something wrong, some years they are not too bad, but on the whole a bit disappointing 😢

Oh that's a shame Cynthia 😔 and I have to say I don't particularly treat mine very well! 😳 I don't prune when 'they' say we're s'posed to, I give them a couple of feeds a year and that's about it! @clustyroen

Oh what a nightmare Deborah! But I guess as long as you're all ok that's the important thing...😘 let's hope the rains stay away and you dry out quickly @latebloomer and thank you - this rose I brought from our old house 11 years ago. It was cut right back to nothing a couple of years ago so I'm delighted it's flourishing!

@nessas You've shown us yours so I'll show you mine! 😂 not the best pic actually but it gets huge. Had to cut it back completely when we had the wood on the pergola replaced but it's thriving again now 👌🏼😊

Thanks 😊 @missiscook I bought it in 2004 I Had it in a large planter against a wall in my old garden and made my husband dismantle the trellis so I could bring it with us when we moved in 2005! It was only about 6 foot then! I have another climbing rose that I brought with us as well, but it isn't as big as this although it flowers all summer long 😊😊
