I am in Shropshire on Monday.....hmmmmm  I love Roval William, it is beautiful, as are the other roses

My Iceberg was bare root and the Many Happy Returns was in a pot (as it was a present). I'd like a really vivid cerise coloured rose which is highly scented.....going to research now

 Tried earlier to send photos of Rosemoor but signal is feeble in this B & B and it didn't work, so hope it works now.

David, rosemoor looks beautiful, but like you say, they all are! Nice to have an expert opinion
18/06/2014 at 22:17

Well I didn't need to do much research, the Gertrude Jekyll you have been talking about is the one I need

Orchid Lady - I have ordered the very same today and can't wait to receive it on Friday. Trouble is I deliberately stopped myself from ordering that and the other rose I bought. I think I'll be 

BTW I'm loving the enthusiasm on here for roses. DavidK recommended Peter Beales for roses.

Has anyone been to the tea room at DA? is it just a cafe or do they have a bit of a deli too?

18/06/2014 at 22:22
Oooh, its only amazing, they do light meals and puds, all home cooked

18/06/2014 at 22:23

18/06/2014 at 22:25
No sorry, there is a shop, but the only food is usually wine and sweets

rosemoor does look gorgeous, i want the rose of that name too, hmmm wine ans for me!

OL - Perhaps you may wish to look at the rose 'Tam O' Shanter' as your cerise choice. For me it's an excellent rose, although not all that much scent.

I have a beautifull deep, deep pink rose (almost burgundy), its probably supposed to be a standard, judging by its height, but has been planted in a hedge, its dosent look like an old rose type, but seems more full than a hybrid tea, it reminds me of the posh flower arrangers roses, it has the most exquisite pure rose scent i have ever smelled.
Does anyone have any idea what this may be? The lady lived here before must have planted it, no label left.
Sorry cant do pics

Fantastic thread! I only joined the forums yesterday and am loving the advice, photos and friendliness. I only have one shrub rose at the moment - 'Alan Titchmarsh' which has hundreds of buds on it. I love the anticipation of buds opening and then the beautiful unfurling. I will definitely be looking at 'Gertrude Jeykll', Generous Gardener', 'Brother Cadfel', 'Lady of Shallot', and the beautiful 'Royal Jubilee' as I would love more roses. Ooooh and 'Tam O' Shanter - cerise is one of my favourite colours!!
