  1. I’m nuts for old roses and already wondering if the Portland Damask would cooperate with my hot, humid summers. I do have a lot of luck with antique roses, though. Beautiful photos!

  2. Dear Alistair, I love the old fashioned roses and this is a particularly beautiful example. Their glorious, cabbagey flowers and, often, heavenly scent makes them worthy of any garden border.If I recall correctly, Nancy was the daughter of the rather more famous Norah Lindsay and became a great friend of Lawrence Johnston of Hidcote fame, a garden which I regard as iconic.

  3. Hello Alistair, I too love old fashion roses and admit to being a latecomer to growing many. Your Portland Rose is a beauty, as is your photo of the garden above. I have been hearing of your lightning and thunderous snow storm from other bloggers. It does sound bizarre.
