      I thought Loli had gone off the idea of roses.

      Loli !!! Where are you at with the choice of plants? :)

      Sometimes...... just sometimes Armandii, provocation doesn't help! :heehee:

                      We thought you had too :heehee:

                      Personally I wouldn't buy a rose unless I had seen a mature sample [i.e. not one in a nursery pot with one or two flowers] growing in the flesh, seen the colour, and smelled the flowers ...

                        @Kristen...totally agree:thumbsup: I'm going to stick with my second selection all of which I've seen in the flesh albeit in the grounds of large houses and planted en masse but 3 in each bed in my diddy parterre should have the same effect ish:biggrin:....I'm imagining their delicate scent with a froth of Ammi Majus growing through them after the delicious Viridflora Spring green Tulips have put on their show surrounded the perfectly clipped Buxus :whistle:


                        Annnnd back in the room:whistle:....:heehee:....

                        I was going to barrow more soil in the beds and then start on the sand for the paving but seen as summer has returned with a vengeance ,it can wait till tomorrow.The blocks for the paving arrived while I was at work today and expected to have to move those off the drive but my old Dad had done it for me:love30:...I hope I'm as good as him at 87 years of age:wub2:

                          That David Austin catalogue is an omen Loli, it's telling you it definitely must be roses......but on the other hand, which ones. :)
