on the plot I bought as an Iceberg, but didn’t flower the first two years so I moved it following which it reverted to a dog rose. It does well where it is and flowers profusely, although the simple white flowers only last a few days at best.
In the autumn it has lots of large, bright red berries which the parakeets seem to like.
It’s been windy the past two days, gusting at times to 40 mph, but thankfully all was okay when I had a good look round this morning. I hope to plant the tomatoes tomorrow which have been hardening off for a few days. There are three each Gardener’s Delight and Golden Sunrise, both of which I grow most years.
Next week looks like continuing to remain dry, and I see that the Met. Office forecast for June is for little rain. Needless to say the ground surface is now dusty and cracks are starting to appear.
Take care, and have a good week!
