Scented roses?

I recently bought Gertrude Jekyll & Falstaff, Would it be best to plant them in different areas, would the perfumes clash or compliment each other?

    Well I've never known Rose scents to clash with each other. I guess it's up to you, but I think I would space them apart so you would get their fragrance over a larger area rather than in one hit.

    It's up to you.  I have one bed planted with Gertrude, Sceptr'd Isle and William Shakespeare and the combined perfume is glorious  as a whole but you get the individual scent close up.

    I also have Falstaff on his own in another spot and find he smells great close up but doesn't create a waft of perfume as there's usually a breeze dispersing it.

    That's what I was wondering Obelixx. GJ is now planted, still contemplating Falstaff. I have a huge pot, do you think it would be OK in a pot?
