Looking for something?
Roses are marvellously versatile, suiting almost every garden situation, and one of the most popular is within a mixed border. With their long flowering season, roses inject unrivalled grace and glamour, harmonising, and contrasting well, with other plants. To provide greater interest, select roses with a range of heights, flower colours and leaf textures. Where space allows, plant roses of the same variety in tight groups of three or more. The bushes soon grow together to give the appearance of one shrub, making great impact. Don't plant other plants too closely to the roses, for fear of overwhelming them, especially in the first year.
