I’ve found my grandad’s favourite rose. It’s a deep red blowsy old thing that he used to treat like a human being. I’ve ordered a climbing variety for the back wall so that one day (hopefully) it will get all tangled up with the very mature Albertine next to the door.

Love the name of the grower too. I wonder if he gets fed up of people calling him “tweacle”?
