just moved house would like advice on which easy to keep scented roses and best times to plant



You can plant bare root roses during autumn and winter, which is cheaper, or you can plant pot grown specimens September/October or March/April. As for "easy to keep", no roses are easy to keep, they're all high maintenance, needing regular spraying with pesticide/fungicide, regular and correct deadheading, correct pruning at the right time of year, and feeding twice a year with, preferably, a specialist rose food. So pick whatever ones you like, really.
