          That's a lot of Roses to tend to! I also like the Tequila Sunrise. I prefer Orange ones. I only have one, Sunseeker, a rambler going over the Jungle Room. T'other Half doesn't like Roses becayse of the thorns ... but likes Bougainvillea which have horrendous thorns!!! Figure that!

            Thanks,they don't take much looking after, hubby prunes them in spring, i give them some rose food and a good mulch after, then just deadheading. I cut them half way down in November or there abouts.

                I planted White and Pink seeds with my Blue of many years but I only had Blue.

                Mine only lasted two years here, I think it would have preferred partial shade rather than full sun.

                  I used to have a pink one but it seems to have disappeared. I didn't know you could get the seeds.

                  Maybe your sunshine was too strong for it. I have it in what I call full sun but it's Welsh full sun :SUNsmile: I agree with you it would have preferred some shade.

                            I have some Fuchsias flowering very well on the balcony at present:

                            'Tom West' is proving to be a reluct flowerer! I've had in on the balcony for nearly 3 months but no sign of flower buds yet! Today I moved it to a location where it should get better light &, hopefully, flower.
