Thank you so much Lavender lady!! It sounds like we both have a love affair with Roses and lavender I have lots of David Austin climbers, and ramblers arriving soon, so i'm really excited about getting them in the ground, and watching them do their magic. Before and after pics also sound like a great idea. Im really pleased that you have chosen M. Alfred Carriere, Munstead wood, and Noisette, because my best friend has these in her garden too, and they are part of my collection yet to arrive. They are stunning. Your pics give such a different perspective to what I would like to achieve.
Tootles is right you should write a book!!!
Looks like Mr Rose man is going to be busy at the weekend putting up my Trellis
Can anyone also suggest any roses which would be good in a north east facing front garden...quite shady really. Ive chosen Zephrine Druhin, and Generous gardener...any ideas, i realise roses need at least 4-5 hrs of sunshine in summer, if not a rose, then a pretty shrub, or another climber that doesn't mind little sunshine.
