Some of the best roses at a glance

There are many reasons to grow roses. They are easy to grow, and you can get flowers for 5 or 6 months in a year.

In the past, I have planted roses with other roses and found they work very well together.

Roses do well undercover, as well as in confined spaces.

How to get the best out of roses;

  • To bring out the best in roses, combine planting roses with herbaceous perennials.

  • Roses love lots of organic matter. They need space in which they can flourish.

Some of the best roses at a glance;

  • Rosa ‘The generous gardener’; has a lovely scent. Can be grown and trained against a trellis as a short climbing rose, or as a shrub rose.
  • ‘A Shropshire lad’ a peachy, apricot rose; is one of the best roses. It is a proper English rose, perfect for the back of a border and can be grown as a shrub as well as a climber.
  • Another for a strong scent, is Rosa ‘Lady Emma Hamilton’. An English rose great at the back of a border with orange flowers.
  • Wedding day rambling rose; this produces yellow, pink and white flowers in great big bunches. They get enormous, but flower once a year. We have one in our back garden. It was a wedding present 15 years ago, and is now fully established and thriving, trained through our crab apple tree. It requires little or no pruning. I do get into the habit of cutting out the dead wood in the winter. It flowers year after year.
  • Hyde Hall (David Austin) is a big, beautiful pink rose and Graham Thomas has a lovely colour with great scent, and is one of the best roses available 🙂
