    Ah, Arthur Bell....had to leave mine behind in my old garden, I shall miss it. It had grown into a 3m tall beauty, poking out through the clematis. Sadly, I am rubbish at taking rose cuttings and they didn't work.

    Your plantings look lovely and healthy!

    I hope you post some close ups of Ghislaine, I keep asking if it is a thorny one or not, but not had a definitive answer, and photos have not been very revealing.
    They do look nice when they all start with the new leaves.
    Good luck, you have a nice bunch there.

    @Jess is in the Garden, Arthur Bell is relatively easy to get. Perhaps a new one?

    Your roses look good and healthy. I have some of them - and had Arthur Bell many years ago - great scent.  Rubytoo - Ghislaine has little thorns on new growth but not on the main branches which are smooth.

    Looking good Mr VE! Be great to see them as they develop. Here are three of my recently planted bare root roses - having branched out from david Austin roses, I’m excited to see how they turn out...

    Wild Rover, purple/maroon floribunda with yellow centre, to be grown as a short climber, looking sturdy:


    Gruss an Tepliz, tall, to 12ft, china/bourbon red climber, the leaves seem very thin and delicate, but it has already got buds:


    Absolutely Fabulous, yellow, compact floribunda, one of a trio:
