My 'Iceberg' rose is still in flower, it hasn't stopped since last summer. I keep pruning it back hard to stop this happening as it can weaken the rose, but it puts out more shoots and bursts into bloom once more. I was in my greenhouse yesterday, potting on geranium cuttings. The sun was beaming in, this rose was going great guns just outside the window and a pigeon was giving it the big 'un thinking Spring had arrived. I was delighted with all this until I considered, as Bobert has, that bad stuff needs a good sharp frost to kill it. And the weeds are whizzing up all over the place!
