I took a few turns around the garden to see which plant I would consider most irritating this month. Then, suddenly, my eyes fell upon my Rosa Gloire de dijon. I bought this rose back in 2011 and I was very pleased with it. I bought it because I am very fond of the DH Lawrence poem of the same name. I even wrote about it I was so pleased to own it. Oh smugness, what a downfall lays ahead of thee, sadly the rose has not lived up to expectations.
Then suddenly I noticed there was new growth. So I have been feeding it liquid seaweed and talking to it lovingly. But it is still annoying as there are no buds this year and I have little confidence that it will ever amount to much.
So I may well buy another in the autumn to try in another part of the garden.
