I visited a garden recently that was packed with roses of every kind and they were covered with flowers. It looked wonderful and the scent was gorgeous. The soil was loamy, well drained and slightly acid and there was good shelter from the wind. I think that if you have the right conditions, there is nothing more lovely but if, like me, you don't, no amount of work will make them look really good. If they give you more grief than pleasure, dig them up and replace them with something more obliging!
