This rose, Gertrude Jekyll, is currently sitting in a David Austin pot and we are enjoying it very much. It’s actually far more like a wild rose than one might imagine from the formality of a Gertrude Jekyll garden. The colour is bright and it’s a rather blowsy rose, not at all like Gertrude Jekyll herself. (Apologies about the website malfunctions yesterday. Back to ‘normal’ now although there is no normal while we continue to be so busy that we cannot even answer the phone! Next week on the Post something funny. There is not much to laugh about at the moment so we shall do our best at least to make you smile.)
