Rose - Quicksand / Secret Garden

I've seen these as cut flowers (my friend is a florist and supplies me with the loveliest things!) and so would love either of these in my garden. I can't seem to find anyone who grows them in the UK, though? (huff). They just seem to be available as imported cut flowers.

Does anyone know of any mail order suppliers who might provide them, or if not, any available roses which are very similar in colour? I need cheering up after my tree headbutted the floor....

    Try using the stems of the cut flowers as cuttings

    You mentioned Chaucer above.  I am desperate to find this rose.  David Austin Roses don't stock it anymore.  Someone said they'd seen one at Wyevale in Yorkshire (I'm in Gloucestershire), but Wyevale don't do their plant finding service at the moment.  Can anyone tell me where I can find one without having to fly to Australia to smuggle one through customs? image
