Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom
I planted a climbing rose last year which is doing just fine. BUT there
is one very straight, very different, very thick, very red with very red leaves (the rest of the plant is greenish) growing up from the base. I presume this must be the original bit from which this species was grafted on to?
here's the question: Do I chop it off, or do I let it carry on growing?
Thanks to all you lovely helpful peole out there.
I do love this site, if I ever get bored (sitting in my office and just wishing I could be out there pottering about in my garden and the allotment bit), I log on and see what's going on here!
Always feel better for it
