Probably the prettiest part of the Compost Garden is what peeks over the fence from Sick Bay!  Cottage Rose, a David Austin rose, is a good candidate for a rose near the gate.  She seems content to stay slim and not attack those coming and going.  I like Cottage Rose (I have two), but she is a floppy girl.  If you want to grow her, plan on giving her a fence, trellis, or pillar to prop her up.  As it is, even with the fence, the poor girl got all tangled and top heavy in the strong winds we had last week.  I actually took a chair out to her and piled her canes onto it until I have time to untangle her and chop her back.  I'll wait until her heavy blooming is done.  Rose growing must be so simple in places without 70 mph winds.
