Noooooooooooooooooooooo!! Anything but roses Newb
nothing looks worse in winter, they need spraying and they are vicious. They are UGLY shapeless things. (Ha ha now expect more comments Newb cos roses have fanatical admirers )
No, don't put a lawn in. Looks great without one.
scented shrubs...choisya, Hamamellis, Winter Beauty, sarcoccoca, Cheerfulness daffs, hyacinths, regal lilies, heliotrope, dwarf mock orange, lavendar, lemon scented verbena, pineapple scented salvia elegans.....are a must there with the scent wafting around.
Foliage colour too
did I say noooooooooooo to roses ?
