Hi to all,
As always looking for a bit of advice. Want to plant some climbing roses along the back and some low growing bush roses along the front. Site exposed. Like red and other vivid bright colours, any suggestions.

Many thanks

I have Rosa Dublin Bay which is a lovely deep red growing on a SW facing wall. It's doing very well, despite some black spot.

Yep I have Dublin Bay it flowers up to Christmas. You can buy roses bare rooted in many garden centres in October /November at a fraction of the price. Carpet roses such as "fairy " are a good low growing one
