  • Thank you so much for your suggestions everyone. 
    I like the look of many of those mentioned here. Royal jubilee looks especially nice to me. I have 5 spots so might get moonlight, royal jubilee, wild rover and not sure about the other 2 yet. 
    I've enjoyed reading all the suggestions. Thank you

    @Pete.8  It was your posts that persuaded me with Moonlight. It sounds perfect for my garden. I thought I'd run out of rose space (as you do) but I have just made a new clearance for it. Autumn plotting.

    I'm sure you won't be disappointed @Fire it's not the most stunning rose in the garden, but its continuous blooms and nice habit make it one of my favourites

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Like Edhelka, bees show zero interest in my single flowered roses as they are too busy with the agastache and other stuff. 

    Happy rose buying TGG!
