One of the most common requests we have is to suggest climbing roses that will grow on a North wall .  Over the next few weeks we will highlight all  the climbers we have  that will  tolerate a Northern aspect.

However you have to accept a simple golden rule.

"More Sun, More Flowers"


(Rose Of The Week)

English Rose Shrub/Climber David Austin 1998.  5ft plus.

A yellow rose of great beauty and value. The flowers are particularly attractive with the central petals in the form of a rich, deep yellow cup and the outer petals falling back and fading to palest yellow. A lovely medium to strong Tea Rose fragrance. Altogether a most reliable and excellent variety that is hardy, extremely healthy and repeat flowers well.  A very refined rose. It can also be grown as a first class short climber which will climb to about 8ft and also grow on a North wall. Shade tolerant. Named for Mr.Ulrich Meyer, after his wife Georgia.

Winner in 2000 of the Henry Edland Medal for the Best Scented Variety in the RNRS trials.  Also won the best variety at the Pencoed Trials in South Wales where the roses are never sprayed.


English Rose Shrub/Climber David Austin

1998..  4ft plus

Large fragrant flowers of bright crimson colouring. They are of a nice, deeply cupped shape in the early stages; the petals turning back to give a less formal but still attractive flower. Healthy dark green foliage. It has a lovely Old Rose fragrance. It can also be grown as a short climber and will probably reach 8 or 9ft. Very useful as it can also tolerate a North wall situation.

Named after the character from Thomas Hardy's novel.


English Rose Shrub/Climber David Austin

2003.  5ft plus

A charming rose with lovely soft glowing pink blooms shading to palest pink on the outer petals.  When the petals open they expose numerous stamens, providing an almost water-lily like effect. An extremely healthy rose with a delicious fragrance of musk and myrrh. One of the healthiest of the English rose which can also be grown as a climber. Will also cope with a North wall and shade. This lovely rose was named to mark the seventy fifth anniversary of the National Gardens Scheme.
