cutting update – damask success

Last winter we took three cuttings from the damask rose.  Allotment-rose-splices2At first, all three took and thrived, but eventually there were two, and then, just one.  But what a one that one is!

It’s been repotted to a large handsome terracotta pot.  And has set bloom.  This is the third mature bloom.  And all from a twig mere months ago.


P.S.: Squirrels were burrowing into the pots to scavenge crocus bulbs, hence the pea netting around the base of the pot. We’ll have to work on finding a more attractive solution.
