In October I had a back garden makeover, but I wanted to choose the plants myself and put them in the ground. At the moment it's a blank canvas, so I thought I would start by getting a bareroot rose for the wooden pergola. It has to be a repeat flowering English climbing rose with a strong scent, producing a number of basal stems and putting on quite a bit of growth in its first season. If anyone has any experience of growing the following roses, I would welcome your comments: A Shropshire Lad, The Generous Gardener, Wollerton Old Hall, Claire Austin. Thank you, in hopes of a reply!
