I am trying to combat the constantly invading ivy which lines both side fences and intrudes all the time. So have decided to plant this climbing rose in the left hand bed that I have already cleared for the poppy and where I have also now planted a mass of grape hyacinths. It’s described as a vigorous rose which flowers abundantly through the summer. So I have high hopes for masses of lovely yellow flowers.
I have always found the habit of naming roses after people just a little strange – no idea who Graham Thomas is/was – and I don’t think I can bring myself to address it as Graham!

    Hi, just been looking up who ‘Graham Stuart Thomas’ was – plantsman, gardener, wrote books and painted flowers, worked for National Trust, known mainly for his work with shrub roses – for more info try book section of amazon.com

    He must have got about a bit, because I have 2 yellow flowering honeysuckles named after him. I suppose I’ll have to call one Graham, and the other Thomas.
