Your lucky to only have a touch of it at this time of year. I just pick the leaves off then ignore it hoping it will go away 😂

This is so nostalgic for me. I grew up in a house in London, the garden of which had been designed by GJ. My parents found the plans and restored it. Think I might grow this rose...

@bluebell66 yes I agree, I have three David Austin roses but this one flowers for the shortest time, I thought it had finished a few weeks ago then this new flower came out but it is quite a big bloom
