Thanks Thee, if you check out my post on your "holiday rose pics" thread you'll find a sad litany of mistakes made so far.................. :oops:

As I said there, a lot of the existing roses had reverted to below graft shoots and some had died.

Where I bought new ones to replace these I seem to have lost most, and I'm not sure why.

I'm fairly sure that the ones that flower early, try to do their thing while jack frost is still lurking and they get the bejeebers knocked out of them early in the piece, so they just turn up their little toes.......... :cry:

I'm thinking that if I could find the names of some late flowering or really tough varieties, I could have another go.

I have put in some climbers including a climbing iceberg and a "Black Boy" this year.

The Peace Rose does well, as do the icebergs, including a burgundy one I planted. I also have a few others that seem OK. They were all here already, most of what I've planted has perished. :roll:

This is the first year that black spot and thrips have not been around much. Possibly because of the aforementioned large numbers of ladybeetles. Gotta love 'em.

Anyway, all suggestions gratefully received!
