FAQ Frequently Asked Questions.
MALVERN HILLS Repeat Flowering Rambler.
Q. What is the difference between a Climbing rose and a Rambling rose.
A. In the past the answer was quite simple. Most ramblers only flower once during the summer, mainly in the spring or early summer. Most climbers repeat flower through the summer. However over the last few years quite a few ramblers have been bred that repeat flower through the season. Take a look at our Rambling Rose section on the web site which lists quite a few repeat flowering ramblers. A few that come to mind are BLUSHING LUCY. MALVERN HILLS. PHYLISS BIDE. And SUPER FAIRY. For further information please see the ROSE CARE page on our web site.

NEW ROSES FOR 2012
Floribunda. 1988. 2ft-3ft
An attractive rose with clusters of orange blend blooms which are quite a striking colour. Flowers in flushes throughout the summer and into autumn and the first frosts. Produces plenty of blooms so the spent blooms should be removed regularly to promote repeat flowering and to keep the plant tidy. Nice healthy foliage and good disease resistance. The stems are not very long being a floribunda, but it does make an attractive cut flower. Fruity fragrance.
Not very well known at the moment, but that should all change soon with the next Olympic Games coming to London in 2012.

NEW ROSES FOR 2012
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.
