About 3 years ago, we moved a huge old wooden greenhouse (Victorian monstrosity - not pretty at all!) and were left with this huge base which we removed... This left a bed 25 ft by 17 ft. I decided to plant up a new rose garden. I used only roses from David Austin. He specialises in breeding 'new' old roses, ie Bourbon style. Many of them extremely heavily scented, and lovely soft colours - and some of them with great rose hips in Autumn. I underplanted with lavender (different types, my favourite is Hidcote blue). The 'back' of this bed is fenced and I put 4 clematis up it - 2 viticellas 'Violette' and 'Minuet' and two summer flowering - Duchess of Edinburgh and Ernest Markham.

Here is the David Austin site. He obviously does mail order to the USA, judging by the front page of the site. Have a look and prepare to DROOOOOOOOOL

I wish I could remember ALL the names of the DA roses we've got - but stupidly, I only recently kept a file - and the tags which came with many of the roses have fallen off over the years!

But I am amazed at how many of the plants in the garden that I DO remember, a lot of them latin - considering I am terrible at remembering names of humans..... king.gif
