Caught the Old Rose bug in the 90's and they have taken centre stage in my gardens ever since. I overfill my borders to the point of ridiculousness!

@hobnob Great stuff - give it plenty of space and only prune (to tidy) after flowering. It will make a a really good plant in a couple of years and if you leave unpruned will give you some flowers next June. Plant with the graft about an inch below the soil level and you will get plenty of strong basal shoots x

I have just planted mine, I hope it grows like yours! How old is this one?

@angiewilson - this one I inherited 11 years ago and it was quite well established then. Funnily enough, I wouldn't of grown it out of choice being an old rose snob but now I'm glad I gave it the benefit of the doubt. It's a strong and reliable grower though so it should make a fine specimen in about 3-4 years :)

Thank you for that, I had a friend in Kew who grew this and it did look lovely. Like you I love the old roses!
