After much deliberation I have chopped my climbing rose down. It was a very pretty pink with a fabulous perfume but only flowered for about two weeks each May. It had also been suffering from black spot which wouldn't respond to treatment. I would like to replace it with a climber that has perfume and which has a longer flowering season. I know I am taking a chance on the black spot returning but wonder if I can get a resistant one - and does anyone have any ideas which rose to get?
