That's a beautiful rose Jackie. What is it? I love the changing of the colours from outer to inner petals.
I was very surprised to see what my Dioressence has come up with. It is still sticks (pruned July) with 2 leaves just unfurling and there between them is a flower bud! Very strange.

Silkyfizz, thatís Gertrude Jekyll. Thanks for the compliment and letting me know I forgot her name.
Sorry to hear about you Dioressence; I looked her up on HMF, sounds to be wonderful with that strong interesting fragrance. Is this the first time sheís been acting strangely?

maree, yes, itís a DA, cheers

Jordan 71, Iíve got a Heritage, but sheís still sitting on her bud

I didnít fiddle with the colour in post, and thatís what she really looks like, actually nothing like in the catalogue, where there are no lighter outer petals shown; but thatís what she looks like here from start to end at all hours of the day. Sheís super vigorous and full of blooms at all stages today, but that photo was taken some days ago.

Bravo, David for getting it right.

Maree, youíll have all the blooms when mine run out. Our weather is fine, and we have some intermitted T-shirt days. Weíve had good rainfall here around planting time; it was perfect; I didnít have to water them in. Iím kicking myself though for planting some of them a bit too deep, because after mulching some of the lower leaves are touching the mulch (danger zone!). Some people suggest taking these leaves off, but I canít get myself to do that. Now I have to do some pretty advanced yoga poses to water around them.

John I agree, IMO raised beds all round are the way to go if it is at all possible. What I have at the moment is a newish bed with some roses in it , they are planted to the bud union at soil level or below and the surrounding area can be raised as I find/get the material.

What happened to the photos? Are they taken down periodically or did rosemeadow take them both?
(If ever in doubt about any of my comments, Iím always kidding).
GJ grows vigorously here and wider than tall: the second photo showed only the centre of the bush: there were two very long canes, one on either side that didnít fit into the photo and didnít have any blooms yet. The flowers start to look a bit dehydrated and scatter quite a bit faster than Tamoraís, but the blooms come in faster successions. The lighter outer petal effect vanishes with extra warmth/sunlight, but the blooms still look very pretty just in pink.

Silkyfizz, Iím not exclusively into pink and really adore yellow and white (hence my fascination with Charlotte), but with the German word for pink actually being rosa, I think most people who grow a large number of roses are probably likely to have a fair amount of pink in their gardens. When you say Ďconvertingí, what colours predominate in you garden at the moment?

Maree, I think if you plant too high, youíre more likely to get suckers (stimulated by light); and roses may be planted actually below the graft for extra protection in areas where the ground freezes over. But I can really see how planting too low is problematic, because no matter what I do, the lover leaves always get splashed. I have noticed thought that where I planted Alyssum in the pots it really does a great job as splash buffer, if I only aim into it (on the shower setting).

All my rose beds are raised for better drainage. I take it that you donít really fuss over wet leaves, with your roses planted to the bud union at soil level or below, David. Did you do that for a purpose?
