All the roses I have had from Country Garden Roses have faired well, including a climbing Iceberg and Rosa Evening Light planted on the pergola only last year.

I'm fortunate to live close enough to the nursery to visit in person, although they do a mail order service the roses are a lot dearer this way and despite the very informative website with lovely photographs you don't get to try the scent. For me a rose isn't a rose without a scent.
It was unbelievably difficult to choose from the miriad of plants available and to be honest I'm amazed that I managed to restrict myself to only four. But there's always next year's trip to look forward to, unless of course I have any visiting friends who'd like to see and smell the lovely display during the summer!
