Thanks thats all really helpful. I hadn't fully appreciated the significance of personal preference for colour or even space for planting. Typical me I was just thinking how nice it would be to get a rose as a gift, but then my garden is pretty eclectic. Having done some googling I found https://www.englishroses.co.uk/ who sell an E gift card. So hopefully my friends can choose whatever suits their garden and everyone will be happy. This is my first post on here so many thanks for the properly helpful advice.
