Thomas Affleck is not blooming yet, but I did clean out the Herb Bed where this rose is the western anchor. It looks like it came through our horrendous winter well. All that deep snow was a blessing for many plants. Chives and parsley and marjoram are showing new growth, but I am going to have to wait a while more the roses to bloom.

Thomas Affleck came from the Antique Rose Emporium where many of my most beautiful roses. They have Old roses, new roses, and roses in any shade of pink, red, white and yellow.

    This is a beauty and it looks like it did come through the winter really well in your previous post. How and when do you prune it?

    Salemgarden – This rose has come through winters well – and seems to be fine this year, too, even after those February temps. Of course we did have all that snow cover. I am not a great pruner. I take out dead stuff in the spring, and cut off the dead hips at the same time.
