I think this is the variety which is in the paper today. It grows in the church yard of St Mildred's Church in Tenterden, Kent and is 30ft Tall and 30ft Wide...be warned Shirley lol!

Oh Shirley, I also saw the photo of this variety in the paper today..The D...y M..L ? take heed of Waddy's warning..sorry to put a damper on it ,but a 90 year old remembers it being planted as a small bush.. it's taken over the Churchyard !

Sandra, a couple of years ago I had this idea of putting in a 'rustic' wood pergola the whole length of that border either side of the current arch. It may have to happen yet!!!

Marjories has just posted a blog, she also has a Rambling Rector rose .....

Lol.great idea Shirley..and yes,I've just seen your comment on Marjories blog...how spooky is that? not the comment,but the coincidence !!!

I wanted to put a rambling rose over our 'arch' but was advised by the GC only to use metal arches as the wood ones eventually rot at the base...oh dear I hope I haven't put the cat amongst the pigeons.

Not always the case Waddy, most folk put the wood arch bases in concrete for stability. Or those Metpost doo-dahs!!
Can you tell I don't do the heavy work??

4 Jun, 2017

 

That's a point Shirley. My OH tends to do the heavy work too!

Our son usually gets invited to assist ... payment often involves food! :o)

It's the same with all boys I think lol!

Yes indeed Waddy, offer a couple of bacon butties before they start work to guarantee a good job!

Ha, ha! yes, or maybe a cold beer on a hot day too!
