With the beautiful weather my favourite rose has come into its own. I have had this in the garden for around 15 years but as it is very sensitive to damp and goes mouldy at the first sign of rain I only get to get the full benefit every three or four years. Obviously last year was a complete wash out but this year it has come into its own. The perfume is out of this world, like the best turkish delight, and wafts down the garden. I am now going through my books and trying to identify it as I can’t remember what it is called. To celebrate – all books on roses have10% off for July.
