Rose Bed

Many thanks Brenda. More food (or wine!!) for thought - I may just have to create more than one new rose bed with all these suggestions. The Nepeta is a good idea. I have  a dwarf variety that does do really well in another part of the garden.  We are warmer and sunnier down here in Gloucestershire

I used holly branches laid on my veg patch when newly planted and this seems to have helped keep the cats away

Many thanks for these heplful suggestions and information cloud 8 and trillium2cv. I like the idea of the alchemilla mollis, spring bulbs and clove scented pinks to give a bit more interest. I wonder if lavender would work as well?

I want to make an all rose flower bed. It's a kidney shaped bed (max 5.4 m long x 2m wide) in the middle of a south facing lawn.  Ideally I would like fairly low growing roses, probably pink, easy to care for and with some scent. I'm a complete novice! I would be grateful for any suggestions as to the varites I should use. I'm open to ideas or different colours. Many thanks
