We have this growth on a rose bush in our school garden, could anyone please tell us what this is and where it might have come from?

Hi there, that looks amazing

One for the class nature table I recon.

I suspect one of the expert brainiacs will be able to tell you what caused it, I'm guessing it's some kind of gall.

Happy gardening.
