Journal of a rose gardener...to pot or not to pot 21/07/16

We are often asked by customers whether they can place the rose which they have chosen in a pot in the garden. If the rose is a patio (for example. Diamond, Elizabeth, Queen Mother) , compact floribunda (Ballerina, Darcy Bussell, Flower Carpet) or compact climber, (Cinderella, Good as Gold, Star Performer) it will be happy in a pot, but hybrid tea roses, larger climbers and ramblers will struggle.

ROSE OF THE WEEK

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”

MME CAROLINE TESTOUT

Climbing Rose. 1901.  15ft

Over a century old but still grown in gardens around the world.

Very large globular blooms of clear satin pink.

A good vigorous climber with a long flowering period.

Excellent disease resistance .

A Useful rose as it will cope with a North wall, poorer soils and partial shade.

An excellent rose for arches, pillars pergolas and walls where the lovely scented blooms can be appreciated.

Heady Fragrance.

It is said that the original Mme Caroline Testout was a milliner, who bought the name of the rose to promote her business.

MME GREGOIRE STAECHELIN

Climbing Rose. 1927.  10ft-12ft

A fine climbing rose with huge blooms of soft rosy carmine with crimson shadings.

The blooms are ruffled and can come singly and in small clusters.

Summer flowering but a breathtaking sight in full bloom.

If spent blooms are not removed, very large pear shaped fruits are produced that change slowly from green to yellow gold.

Lovely dark green foliage with good disease resistance.

Tolerant of a North wall  situation and very vigorous.

Originally from Spain and is also known as 'Spanish Beauty'

Scented.

MORTIMER SACKLER

Shrub Climber David Austin  2002.  6ft-8ft

A rose of rather different character from other English Roses.

The medium sized, soft pink flowers start as pretty, rather pointed buds, opening to loosely double cups that are held in large, open sprays.

The growth is tall and airy, with dark, very nearly thornless stems.  A dainty and extremely healthy rose for the back of the border and equally good when grown as a climber.

Will tolerate a North wall.

Lovely Old Rose fragrance with delicious hints of fruit.

The right to name this rose was auctioned on behalf of the National Trust to raise funds for their gardens..  It was bought by Mrs Sackler for her husbands birthday.

NARROW WATER

Rambling Rose. 1883.8ft-10ft

(Rose Of The Week)

Large trusses of semi-double lilac pink flowers on a vigorous upright plant.

Repeat flowering Noisette which is always welcome in a rambler.

It is reminiscent of 'Blush Noisette' the original Noisette rose.

Best in sun but can cope with a North wall situation.

A very desirable rose to have in the garden.

Quite a stunning sight when in full bloom with the added bonus of a lovely perfume.

Narrow Water Castle stands on a narrowing section of the Carlingford River between Newry and Warrenpoint.   This river marks the boundary between Eire and Northern Island.

Discovered in 1883 and introduced into the UK by Daisy Hill Nursery in Circa 1901

“More sun. More flowers”

CASINO

Climbing Rose.

1963.  10ft-12ft

This really is one of the best yellow-flowered climbing roses around, and its floriferousness is quite remarkable.

The soft yellow, double, quartered blooms are well formed, very full and fragrant.

They hold their large, old fashioned shape well and  and repeat superbly, often up to 5 times per year.

The hips if deadheading is not completed, are large, round and attractive.

Also makes an excellent cut flower.

Dark green glossy healthy foliage which has good disease resistance.

Best in sun, but will tolerate a North wall.

A good rose that has not received the attention it deserves.

National Rose Society Gold Medal Winner in 1963.

CHAPLIN’S PINK CLIMBER

Climbing Rose.

1928.   15ft plus

 A popular old rose which is not so widely used these days which is a great shame as it is very beautiful and versatile.

Although it is called a climber it is also known as a rambler as it has a rambling habit and mostly summer flowering.

The blooms are vivid pink which are not to everyone's taste, and have golden yellow stamens.    

The blooms are produced in large clusters of 8-12 and are very free flowering and last for ages, with some scattered flowering later in the season.

Glossy mid green foliage plus a nice musky fragrance.

Grows to 15ft plus and is suitable for growing up trees and will also cope with a North wall.

Well worth a place in any rose lover's garden.

Bred by Chaplin Bros.  UK

AWARDS

Royal Horticultural Society, Award of Garden Merit.  1928

Royal National Rose Society Certificate of Merit. 1928

Royal National Rose Society Gold Medal 1928

Also known as Chaplins Pink.    Chaplins Pink Cluster.

CITY OF YORK

Rambling Rose.

1945.   15ft

This lovely old Rambler has been around a while, but we have included it in our Rambler section as we have had so many requests for it as it is considered to be one of the best of the repeat ramblers.

Most ramblers are only summer flowering, but this is one of the few that repeat well.

It produces large clusters of creamy white blooms with attractive yellow centres, plus quite a good perfume for a rambler.

Leathery glossy green foliage which has excellent disease resistance.

A very versatile rose as it can be grown up trees, is shade tolerant, can be grown on any aspect including a North wall and will cope with poor soils.

Won an American Rose Society Gold Medal in 1950

Bred by Tantau. Germany 1939-1945. There are some date differences of opinion regarding this rose.

DANCING QUEEN

(Rose Of The Week)

Climbing Rose

2004.   8ft-10ft

Large beautifully shaped blooms of bright pink with a continuous flowering habit.

It always seems to be in flower and the blooms keep coming right through until the autumn.

In our opinion one of the nicest climbing roses to arrive on the market for some while.

Plenty of large, dark green, semi glossy foliage with a good health record.

A very attractive rose with a good perfume.

A super rose to have either side of the front or back door.

Will grow on a South or North facing wall.
