In my garden: This rose has an incredible old rose fragrance and unusual lilac hue to its pink blossoms – it smells just like old roses in my grandmother’s garden used to smell and I love it! It succumbed to some unusual blight after its first flush of flowers this year and lost nearly all of its leaves – but recovered and is flowering again in October!
