That soil looks very soggy, have they got enough drainage? They could be too wet.

I grow mine on the edge of my borders. When the flowers start to go tatty in midsummer, cut them back by half and they will come back with another show of flowers. Cut back again in late autumn and they will sprout new shoots around now, when you can cut off any dry stems. They have survived -10°C with no problems here.

Strangly, our cat shows no interest in them at all!

This place sells them as cut roses 50cm long, you should be able to make cuttings from them, only problem is that they sell them in bunches of 20!

I don't know about anyone else, Lulu, but I just let mine die down. I have found that by some "miracle" they have self-seeded themselves into various areas of the garden. Any that haven't landed in a suitable place I dig up and replant somewhere else.

So many varieties but what to choose?
