Our work is paying off and the borders are crammed with flowers topped by roses. Our new supports from Snape Supports at Snape Cottage near Bourton are proving invaluable. Usually we can make hazel supports in the Winter but this year it was too wet to get onto the flowerbeds. (www.snapecottagegarden.co.uk/stakes.htm )
Our incredible Himalayan Musk rose is now spilling over the garage roof as well as the old greenhouses.
