GARDENING * ROSES * PRESENTS

top 10 garden roses rec by michael marriott, teleg, 14.6.08 …
A SHROPSHIRE LAD:
I use it as a climber at home to 6ft or so. It has beautiful peachy pink flowers and is very healthy and almost thornless.
HARLOW CARR:
Pink flowers and strongly fragrant, extremely healthy and lovely rounded growth.
TEASING GEORGIA:
Beautiful yellow flowers and lovely tea fragrance.
LADY EMMA HAMILTON:
One of the most delicious of all varieties for fragrance, the tangerine blooms are strongly coloured, as are the leaves.
QUEEN OF DENMARK:
Such a tough, soft pink rose. I have it growing at the foot of a large birch tree and it still grows and flowers very well. Very strongly fragrant.
CELSIANA:
A very lovely rose with single flowers, soft pink at first paling to blush with age, very tough and reliable.
ROSA FORRESTIANA:
This is one of the best of the species roses, with deep, dusky crimson flowers that are very attractive to bees, followed by shiny crimson hips.
ROSA CALIFORNICA ‘PLENA’:
Not a true species in that it has semi-double flowers but very close. Free-flowering, pure pink and with a wonderful fragrance.
CÉCILE BRUNNER:
If you see a climbing rose completely covered in pink flowers, it is likely to be this variety. Also very tough and reliable.
ADÉLAIDE D’ORLÉANS:
Pure white, semi-double flowers that hang down most gracefully, perfect for a pergola especially as it is not too vigorous.
