    This is always useful-just enter a name and see what come up

    Graham for example gets 19 suggestions-Nicola 11............


  • I have rambler rose called Albertina (my mothers name),Nellie Moser ,mrs .batmen,mr.young,Niobe,Clematis,and.....

  • That's a lovely idea Claire! Are you starting from scratch?

  • No it is a well established garden but we have such a good team working here that I wanted to do some thing for them. The Place is Cossington Park in Somerset there is a youtube video if you want to look.

  • I like the bloody Graham but he is the boss so maybe not

  • only some times he is a good boss most of the time

    There is the David Austin rose called Graham Thomas - a beautiful yellow one, Lythrum "Robert", the pretty pink peony "Sarah Bernhardt" and many others in the website above from "santa moniker" above (who is a very helpfull man called Geoff, but he's getting a bit excited because of Christmas and keeps changing his name).

    Dordogne and Norfolk
