I should be able to manage that David, I'm very familiar with the wine glass shape 

Yes, we know about your addiction, OL   .......perhaps the words 'goblet shape' would have been a better choice of phrase.

Never heard that one, OL and to be honest can't imagine what it's based on.

It is advisable to note the potential spread of each rose before you order, so you can avoid overcrowding. Overcrowding prevents free circulation of air between plants and thus causes diseases. Also to this end, when pruning keep the centre of the bush open, ie prune to a kind of wine glass shape.

Also, individual beds of one variety look much better than mixed beds.

OL, at those 'bargain' prices you should be looking elsewhere.

Can't help there, OL....never bought a garden mag since 1954.

Anyway, the 'smiley' ones are good.
