Sarah told us that some friends came to visit her recently and have bought her a stunning white climbing rose called Rosa Alberic Barbier. This has now been planted by the apple tree outside her bedroom window. She was also quick to spot an offer for 10 free lavender plants, that she is going to plant in the pot outside her garden.
