Roses - Not David Austin
I have planted David Austin roses in the past in previous gardens - some years ago now actually.
I have had variable results - from excellent (Getrtrude J), good (golden celebration) to poor (quite a few actually).
Looking at the latest DA catalogue I have seen some of my geese described and pictured as swans - if you see what I mean! The marketing is pretty slick really.
I am sure some of the latest releases are very good, but at the price I am concerned about wasting money on the not so great.
I know nothing about the other breeders and their roses to be perfectly honest,.
Could anybody please suggest alternative modern shrub rose or climbing varities that repeat flower and are healthy from other breeders?
Or even good results from the last few years of DA roses!!!
Thanks for any help
