Morning Dove .....guess I was feeling poetic

Rose suggestions please

Posted: 17/03/2015 at 06:58

hi Lyn.  A rambler will grow huge, so I would suggest a climber.  One of the most healthy in my garden is New Dawn - light pink, smallish flowers, that goes on flowering all season.  Or if you just want one spectacular show in June Cecil Brunner or Albertine are lovely.  I would always plant a rose in the ground if I could - but Busy Lizzie (who might be looking in later) has two gorgeous climbers growing happily in pots, so she might be able to tell you more

My lupins are on the go now Fishy - but you are not too late.  I did them this time last year as well, and got flowers before the end of the season

You will always be OL to me .....I'm a creature of habit

mrsG - I don't grow anything else in my hellebore patch .....but it is not very big.  The leaves look pretty good for most of the year - only get cut down in Dec/Jan, and then the flowers are not far behind.  Maybe you can find them a spot under one of your new trees??
