I've got a samsung tablet (have I ever mentioned that lol ) if i take a photo of a photo and then click on the tree, does that work? 

I've taken photos of photos before and it worked. I don't have a tablet, I have a Samsung laptop. To post photos I click on the oak tree and follow instructions, making sure I leave enough time for each stage to happen. Sometimes it's quite slow.

I'd love to know the results of the Charlotte. I always grow those, but I grow them in the ground.

Pruning roses early in the year usually makes them want to grow more vigorously. But rambler roses are a bit different as they make flowers on the previous years growth, so you prune the branches that have flowered in summer, if at all, otherwise just remove dead wood and shorten the ends of the stems. If you prune roses a lot in summer you are reducing their food making ability through their leaves, so it will eventually affect the health.

My rambler Felicité Perpetué grows to over 4 metres tall. My Malvern Hills keeps it's leaves until we get a really cold spell. It has it's leaves at the moment.

I hope you haven't got rabbits, Pam. Rabbits dug up my roses when we lived in England. They also made short burrows in the rose beds with nests of baby rabbits at the bottom of each!

But Daniel, you said you wanted it for your frame, which is 2m tall. Lykkefund is a vigorous rambler that grows 5 - 6 metres tall and 4 m wide. It is best for growing up a tree. It is also a fairly rare rose, but I think Peter Beales Classic roses has it.

Louise, all those roses have large flowers.

A smaller rambler that grows about 3m tall, not that many thorns, a light perfume (not strong), flowers twice a year (most ramblers flower only once), pale yellow, is "Malvern Hills". I have one in a large pot. David Austin stocks it. Has small flowers, pretty.

This is mine

I love David Austin roses, but most have big flowers. I have A Shropshire Lad, it's lovely, hardly any thorns, but the flowers are big.
