Thanks everyone! I've been trawling through Crocus and Taylors - narrowed down to a mere choice of 10 (ok maybe more!).
Aspect -full sun (can I remember reading somewhere that some will flower with their backs to the sun? or is that another climber?)
Arch size (assuming I get the argos windermere) Size H210, W210, D72cm
I like the later flowering time. (june-oct, May-sept,) many in group 3. Taylors sum pruning up nicely 'cut to knee high every march' - I can manage that!
I also like the' fussy ' flowers, doubles, or two coloured. Pinks, purples maybe with red or white to contrast.
A selection of my favourites - Viticella avant garde, florida cassis, pistachio, reflections, shimmer, suzy mac, florida vienetta, abundance, fond memories, princess kate....
Yes Fairy I am going to love them!
