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.
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?
But no deli or farm shop type thing Rebecca?
rosemoor does look gorgeous, i want the rose of that name too, hmmm wine ans sweets...works 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.
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!!
