|From September’s Rose|
I ordered this Heirloom Rose on the Internet last Spring. I planted this ‘THORNBURY CASTLE’ as a very small twig in March. This is my September bloom.It arrived as a tiny twig and I had doubts that it would survive. I planted it in a sheltered location and it really was not thriving. Finally, at the beginning of summer I transplanted it to a sunnier location. It did better there. I was thrilled to arrrive home from Maine and find two beautiful rose blossoms on my heirloom rose bush.
