rose bed

Lincolnshire, United Kingdom Gb

I have created a raised bed which is about 1m deep and 3m long. I love scented hybrid tea roses and wondered if anyone could advise me on suitable varieties and how many I could fit in. I wouldn't mind a climber too! I have looked at a rose catalogue but the choise is mind blowing.



hey if there is one rose i would recommend its fragrant cloud for big size and smell..artur bell is a beautiful yellow climber.x

Hybrid teas are not very nice shapes apart from the flowers. I would recommend some of the David Austin roses. One look at the website will have you convinced. They have lovely scented blooms and are better looking bushes than H T's. Also, consider planting low growing fillers such as hardy geraniums, violas or low varieties of lavender around them to hide the soil/supress weeds. Or spring bulbs to extend the season of interest.
