    Why can't you grow roses?

    Can't believe you can't grow roses. You just have to choose the right varieties for where you live.

    Favourite flower this year has been lily 'Black Knight' unfortunately the lily beetles thought that as well so may not have any next year. Next year it will change I'm sure.

    Favourite veg -not very experienced here - I guess lovely yellow courgette 'Floridor'

    That pollution issue could explain why my roses did so well in London, but up here in the Fens the air is pretty clean but the roses seem to love the earth. Perhaps you had 'rose repeat disease'?
