I have now kicked into garden planning mode. And so people I am chasing advice. I want to plant some roses around our bull nosed verandah. So you can get an idea, here is the verandah!
And a close up. (The garden bed is actually below that narrow brick space and is about 1 metre deep - probably can be seen better in the first photo.)
The kind of rose I am imagining is a pale, soft pink with an old style shape and a smell. (I love roses that smell!) Plus it has to be super tough and preferably disease resistant. Do you think that is too much to ask?? We have stacks of garden water now however our summers get very dry. I won't plant these roses for several months - I am just at the "thinking about" stage.
So any suggestions you have will be most welcome.
(Sorry about sporadic posting of late - so much going on behind the scenes. Super busy but hopefully things should settle down a tiny bit in the next few weeks...)
