|Raised by Featherby and released by Luxford in 1949, even though the latest register gives Shoesmith as the raiser. I have had a letter from Mr Featherby’s Grand-daughter Peggy Anne requesting stock for sentimental reasons. I am fairly sure that this information is correct, and earlier registers confirm it.
I grow 2nd crown, mid January rooting, 1st stop 21st March, 2nd stop 20th May, 9” pot I like ripe wood, not too much feed. This year (2003) I had 2 plants that for some reason budded early. I ran them on and I had the best blooms I have ever had on this variety.
