I grew Lady Chrisl last year and they where realy good so will be growing again this year.
Sapho varieties are supposedly the best to avoid blight.
I have had my Mantis for about 7years and had no problems but I do get it serviced when my mower is done.
Your message came in as I was typing so I will answer it now,
no no problems ,easy to use and maintain I would recommend it to anybody,
lastly im 60 plus and female and it beats digging.
I forgot to say I loan my Mantis to a couple of friends so they helped me with the cost,
the Mantis I'v got is a 2stroke.
Funny I'v just come in from the garden after using my Mantis,I've got a allotment size veg patch and always use the Mantis. It's easy to use and very efficient it takes me about a hour to do the patch,I wouldn't be without it no more digging.
Just look in your garden centre and I'm sure some of them will have different varieties .
My local garden centre does a dwarf one, it is called Little Maid and it is cream. I've also seen larger ones which are yellow.
remember the rarer it is the pricier it is likely to be.
Roses like clay so that should not be a worry and you can get specific roses for North facing aspects,why don't you go onto something like the David Austin site and you should be able to see a list of roses for North facing aspects.
Hi primrose cottage I live in the south and my local garden nursery grows and sells two types of Myrtle, they are kept in pots outside ready to sell all year and they survive.
