My pink perpetue continues to do very well apart from bare stems for the first metre. I see this year it is putting up two new growths from the base. Would be perfect if only I could find out whether or not this is a grafted rose and these could just be suckers from another rose (have been unable to find any information regarding this).

Carefully dig down to see whether the new growth is coming off a cane, or a graft (if any) or below the possible graft. If the last option, it is from the root stock and should be removed.

Porkpal - Many thanks for quick response. The rose is on 2 stems that come from below ground level. Following your response I have cleared through the ground cover and there is seperately one new shoot from each stem just above ground level - so presume these are shoots of perpetue...
