I bought some bare root roses which have been potted up and doing ok. I need to think about where to put them in the ground.

I would like to plant some of them in light west facing shade but they can go elsewhere if necessary.

These are they:

Queen Elizabeth



Scarlet queen Elizabeth

Advice/ opinions would be much appreciated

    Hortico! What a great idea. Why didn't I think of that?

  • Queen Elizabeth is often a very tall rose, it's the pink one you always see looking over peoples' hedges. Guess Scarlet QE may be  similar, so plant those two at the back, Peace and Pacscali will happily give you foreground bushes, up tp you how you prune themimage
