I am supposed to be at the Chelsea Flower Show today, but life conspired against me, and I haven't gone. Alan Titchmarsh decided to put in an appearance here though, and has just begun to bloom! Isn't he lovely? Very Happy

Dancing Dog's Avatar Absolutely gorgeous. Does it have a scent?

Yes, DD, he is very fragrant.

He is a bit of a surprise to be honest ... the breeder, David Austin, describes him as a 4 ft x 3 ft shrub, which is in scale with Mr Titchmarsh's diminitive stature in real life. For some bizarre reason however, in my garden he is 8ft x 5 ft and would be better named 'Harlem Globetrotter'.
