roses

Hi I have a average to small garden and wish to grow a rose for its hips, can anyone suggest a suitable rose that has edible hips. Many thanks.

    Rosa Rugosa has among the best hips for culinary use, but it is prickly and can get quite big.   http://www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/english/Showrose.asp?Showr=256 

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • Pansyface, I can also remember collecting rose hips at school.   Long time ago!   But how can you say we didn't get paid - we had a wonderful afternoon's ramble out in the sunshine, away from school desks and learning.   And the sun did shine in those far off days!
