English Roses




Repeat free flowering modern shrubs with the appeal of old fashioned shrub roses In confined spaces can be pruned hard annually by removing 50% of the growth Growth on some varieties can be weak causing blooms to bow their heads Plant as specimens or as hedging Most are fragrant or exceptionally fragrant Plant 1 metre (39") apart as specimens. Some can be trained as climbers (see end of selection) Bred by David Austin these compliment and can be used with the Renaissance Roses.

Some English Roses can be planted and trained against fences and walls as climbers. These are exactly the same plant as provided as a shrub rose, but the height is achieved by the way the plants are trained. The varieties you can use will grow around 180-240 cm (6-8') except where indicated. Crown Princess Margareta, Gertrude Jekyll, Golden Celebration, Graham Thomas, Strawberry Hill and Teasing Georgia (240-300cm (8-10').
