It might be huge, spiky and completely out of control, but look how pretty the roses from our rose bush are:
Instead of the traditional rose style blooms, it produces very wide ‘David Austin’ style flowers. I only know that name because a friend had his teacup roses in her bridal bouquet last year.
Such a shame we had to butcher the bush instead of pruning it… it was just too big.
Apparently it’ll reflower in a year or two (otherwise I’ll never google ‘rose pruning’ again).
