I have hybrid t, floribunda, standard and climbing roses in my garden. I gave them a bit of a prune in the autumn to prevent wind damage over the winter. I was going to give them another prune this weekend but the leaves are now opening. Will I damage them if I do this now?

I can't put them in the ground as the area is gravelled. I was thinking of growing the arch behind a garden bench so it would need to be 5 to 6 ft high.

Is it possible to grow a willow arch in 2 pots or planters? If so what size pots would I need and how would I achieve this?

Yes the whole garden design is formal but I am trying to soften this with planting. Both photos look appealing to me. Thanks

I have now purchased a Lutyens bench for the gravelled area but still wondering what to put near/around it to soften the area. The box ball in the blue pots will be moving. I am now going to attempt to attached a photo of the area. The pond look pretty awful at the moment but hopefully when the spring comes all the plants in there will cover up the hideous lining.

Thanks for the ideas. I have now purchased one off the internet, mid range price but looks good quality. Hope it arrives in time for the birthday.

I am looking to buy a 5ft version of the above as a gift for my husbands birthday but after surfing the net for hours am totally confused. I know that they need to be Grade A teak and from sustainable forests but that is where my knowledge ends. Can anyone help me find the perfect bench? I have found out that prices range from £200 to £600 for this size. I cannot afford the most expensive, more mid range and would prefer one ready assembled as my joinery skills are non existant. Many thanks for any help you can give me.
