Rose Fred Loads

This has to be my favourite rose of all time! It's called Fred Loads. It's a very big rose & can easily reach 1.80m. I bought 3 bushes back in 1970, or thereabouts, looked after them for a couple of years & then went abroad for 20 years. As they were in my parents garden they were still growing when I retuned to the UK.

Update 2015:

My poor rose eventually died some years ago. It never did grow as vigorously as in the open ground.
