Rosa 'The Pilgrim' climbing

This is a beautiful, pale yellow, scented rose that I have treated rather shabbily. It was initially in a large planter by the kitchen door where it worked hard to flower each year but was a bit thin and spindly - who can blame it. Roses, especially climbing ones, are not really happy in pots unless they are designed for them.

A couple of years ago I put it out of its misery and moved it to the fence in the Hot bed where it is thriving better. It has flowered well in 2013 and repeated slowly all season. It's obviously much happer being in a bed because it is now sending up wonderful, thick, new shoots - so I have high hopes for it going forward.
