Hi David, they are lovely, aren't they? They are advertised as Harkness roses. To be honest, I have not heard of them before. It is comforting to hear that they are one of the top players in the field.
'Carris' was a free gift. Suttons have a offer on at the moment - buy 3 bare root roses and get 'Carris' for free. the rest are £8.99 each. I got carried away and bought four...
I think my favourite colour for roses is pink. wait a minute, maybe yellow... particularly the ones with a strong tea scent. so refreshing and divine.
Would love to get the Scepter'd Isle from David Austin. Do they sometimes have offers on?
