My absolute favourite #white Climbing Iceberg - flowers almost continually and smells beautiful. This pic was taken before the storms this week...have lost a lot of blooms and leaves but with a bit of a tidy up it will come back fighting. It's a real star 🌟

Gorgeous. A taste of things to come Rachel. My Iceberg has the most growth on it out of all my new roses. Can't get out to look for buds as everywhere is so wet and I have to walk across the wet soil to get a closer look. I spotted greenfly a couple of days ago and blasted them so hope they've gone now 😊
