It looks like an Austin rose-perhaps 'Mary Rose'?-absolutely gorgeous with sweet perfume.I made a little blue bridge in my garden and planted Mary Rose each side of it.It is lovely to see it in your garden too.

I don't know what the Rose is Marion but it has a beautiful scent. Sadly that is no longer my garden after my relationship broke down. However, I now have a new garden to establish and will enjoy doing that

definately an Austin rose....beautiful...I asked my neighbour to come in to my garden and take all the roses...couldn't look after them...will replace a few some day in a much smaller location :)

Me too! It is winter here and the roses are just bare branches ,so just i imagine how they will be-one day soon.

I've just cleared an area outside my front door of ornamental pebbles - previous owner of the flat didn't like gardening apparently. My plan is to plant only roses in the area so that when I open my door thats the first thing I will see!! I hope to get the area ready for planting at the back end of summer but might have to leave it til next year. The soil has had a plastic membrane on top of it with the pebbles on top of that for years so will need to fertilise and prepare for the roses!!

O dear-the soil will be sour.It must be so discouraging for you to be faced with it.Probably not a sign of a worm either.However,what i have done in the past is to dig trenches in poor ground,and put all the veg scraps,sheep pellets(if you have them over there) chook manure andwhatever i can think of into the trench - and cover with soil as i go along.It will break down quickly and will be delicious for the little worms scurrying hither and thither.

How odd that you mention worms Marion. I have always had good soil wherever I have lived and wiht lots of worms which is a clear sign of great soil in my opinion. Well when I dug a wee area to put some pumpkins in I didn't see any worms, I asked a neighbour who has the most fantastic garden if she had seen any worms in her garden - she thought for a minute and said actually no she hadn't. I have never had a wormless garden, but the plants i've already put in here are all thriving. Strange!!1

I think your right though about the soil where my rose garden will be eventually it will be crap, can't put scraps in it cos i'm worried about mice/vermin (this area is right next to my front door) But I will add manure and probably seaweed if I can get some from the shore. I just need to patient and work the soil to enrich it

Good luck in making a new rose garden.
