In Bristol I can usually pick a nice bunch of roses from my garden on Xmas day. The best usually are the old Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother rose. I have eight very old bushes of those. Still blooming now are antirrhinums,cornflowers, marigolds,Californian poppies,roses,lots of shrubs,hardy geraniums,phygelius, sedums,polyanthus, and just coming into bloom Iris unguicularis,winter flowering pansies, early snowdrops, primroses.
