Louise - for roses for your colonnade  this site 

has a fantastic search facility down the left of the page - put in the height and other characteristics you want and you'll get great suggestions.  There are quite a few climbing roses that'll be very happy in a bit of shade. 

Peter Beale's roses are superb.  Sadly he died last year but it's a family company and it continues

Good morning Stacey   

Think you're right - No WUM discussion, apart from if any of us suspect something then PM a few to discuss if you need to, and then PM Daniel/report to Mods. 

They like to read about us discussing them - so let's disappoint them
