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!
