We have been working away on our yard and I am pleased to say my roses are now in the ground! We have had all our iron powder coated including my vintage arch which I have been so looking forward seeing in its new home.
My French Sombreuil rose
Sadly it has been brought to my attention that the white rose I wanted to use may end up being dangerous with its huge thorns and over grow my arch so I have settled for another. Although my heart was sold on the French beauty Sombreuil I have decided to go with Blushing Pierre de Ronsard and be safe. Blushing Pierre is a sport of the popular pink variety but is creamy white.
My Blushing Pierre de Ronsard roses
So with all this said, my Blushing Pierre's are now in the ground ready to be trained up the arch...I am so looking forward to having masses of roses covering my arch in a few years time!!!
How lovely it will be.
But till then I will encourage new growth by bringing the blooms inside to enjoy and letting the canes stretch up and over my archway.
Oh how I ♥ my roses.
