A border of roses is hard to beat for sheer exuberance of flower and fragrance. Many roses, including David Austin’s English Roses, will flower from June until the first frosts. Some people prefer to limit their choice to a range of harmonising colours but this is in no way essential. With the soft, glowing shades of the English Roses, a mixture of the whole range of colours available can be superb. If space permits, we always recommend planting English Roses in groups of three of more to make a definite statement in the border.
