Good afternoon from sunny Norfolk right im planning a rose border underneath the front window, Now my partner says roses are boring when not in flower, so i need to fill the border up with colour underneath the roses if poss, permanent plants would be best , its on a east /south corner part so gets good morning sun, i dont know much about ground covering plants so any help will be good many thanks Alan
Right many thanks for that, I will look at the roses and the salvias ,and we have loads of clematis in the garden bought another this week,they would look nice growing through without any damage,many thanks for your help folks
Geraniums, peony's, salvia's, perevoskia, nepetena are some of the plants that come to mind as possibilities. My wife loves her roses - we have quite a few David Austin roses in a cottage garden style border opposite our small patio.
Hi Bekkie, i followed Monty on rose cuttings a few weeks ago and have 10 good ones ,they are yellow, deep deep burgundy red and a very nice peachy salmon, im not colour coded so the mix i hope will look natural, im hoping to just completely cover the soil with rose friendly plants so it looks good when the roses have gone to kip Hopefully,
Pink roses look lovely edged by blue nepeta.
