Does this rule apply for a Quicksilver climbing rose? This cluster in the photo looks identical to the cluster on the very top of the new thick canes on my plant.

Watch out for friends who are compulsive deadheaders... Fortunately since it's close to the ground, it may be relatively safe.

I'll be keeping a close eye on this one, Margaret. I'm more concerned with possums and anything else that nibbles, to be honest.

After such a long dry spell, it rained fairly heavily overnight, and so not wanting to risk the whole thing rotting, I felt I had no choice but to remove all the petals. It was rather a pity really, but at least it revealed an otherwise normal Maman Cochet bloom.

I took a few photos. There were a few stamens on the flower but it didn't look as if any of the pollen sacs had opened

Based on advice from various Oz rose-breeders, I remove all petals but one (that one helps to find the flower later) and the stamens from flowers I pollinate, so there's pretty well nothing left to attract bees. I put a coloured twist-tie around the stem to help find the hip later on. Warren M also cuts one sepal across to show himself that he has pollinated the flower.
Anticipating your question: no, I haven't bred anything worth releasing. There are enough mediocre roses out there already!

Qué composición más bella, me encanta, muy fina y delicada.

A mí también me gusta hacer arreglos florales, pero los míos son más sencillos.
