Tuscany and William Lobb
When we moved to our present garden there was already a nice framework of trees and shrubs, including evergreens, but little summer colour - and in particular no roses. I have already planted several climbing roses and one bush rose, choosing English Roses. I wait with bated breath to see how they will grow in their first season, and to my eyes even the first shoots they are producing now are a thing of beauty!
But I would also love to try some old roses and have set my heart on the two in the title. I don't mind that they flower only once as they would be worth the wait, but I have read mixed reports of the desease resistance of these two, and wondered if anyone has experience of growing these? We have clay soil with a reasonable amount of organic matter added. Thanks
