The one I have found at Country Garden Roses is distinctly orange - but called Geraldine. Worth a conversation with them. Alternative name seems to be Peahaze.

Hi - I did a search as I like the rose, there is only one place found - in France petales-de-roses.com. Perhaps they would ship to UK. Good price.
Hope you have luck

Rose Pruning

Question from Jill Chambers

In forum: General

This summer my hybrid tea roses lost most of their leaves and I've had to remove others because of black spot. The weather has been very hot and they are beginning to recover with the fall in temperature. Any idea why their leaves fall and whether I can prevent it?

Plants for a north facing covered area

Question from John Duxbury

In forum: Container gardening

I have a north facing covered area between our front door and a garage door (see the attached photo). I tried putting two roses in large pots there, either side of a bench, but they weren't very happy and became too leggy because of the lack of light. I have moved one of the roses to a more favourable spot and plan to move the other (shown in the photo) soon. I have two large (Ø48cm x H37cm) pots, one is shown to the left of the bench, waiting to be planted up. Can you suggest some suitable plants please?!

Sawfly infestations

Question from serena keane

In forum: Pests, diseases and invasive biosecurity risks

Hi everyone, new to Shoot and relatively new to gardening. I started my garden last year. My roses and potted geraniums and a few other species have are plagues with what look like sawfly larvae. I want to avoid using strong pesticides and have been trying to manage them by picking them off but it is very labour intensive. Any tips would be welcome. Should I remove damaged leaves etc, is there anything I could plant that might deter them etc. Thanks a mil Serena, wicklow, ireland

My great grandfather Crego grew these roses in his garden and gave a plant to his daughter, my grandmother. It survived for many years, but eventually died. I would like to find this plant for my garden and for my siblings.

Black Ants eating rose buds

Question from fleet

In forum: General

All I can find on Google is the obvious. " Ants don't eat roses but go after the Aphids that do"
Being aware of this I have made certain my roses are aphid free. I don't like to spray but admit to using 'Rose Clear' to rid my plants of infection, verified by careful inspection.
Despite this, on a number of buds I have found swarms of ants (small black ants) embedded into the buds and half the bud eaten away.
Has anyone else had this?

Cowslip or oxlip? They look like primroses but because they are multistemmed they cannot be. Flowers look bigger than cowslips so more like oxlips.

Knockout roses

Comment from Rita

In forum: Rosa 'Knock Out'

Knockout roses will not be available in uk until at least 2020. My daughter in uk wanted a rose so i suggested a knockout but found they were not available there so after some research i found that the guy that grew these put a stipulation on them so that no one could sell them outside of usa and no one could develop them for 20 years. He developed them in 2000 so you have to wait at least another 2 years before they will be available anywhere except the usa. Hope this helps

Help with layout of a new tropical garden

Question from Mina Gourlay

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

hi all
This forum hasn't been written on for a few years so hoping this might get a look in! We brought a house last year which had a very neglected garden made up of a mix of lawn, roses and ferns - very strange. it was very ratty and unloved and had horrendous ground ivy. we are in quite a steep valley and its heavy clay soil, and because of the low sheltered position its very hot and sheltered. Much more suited to tropicals - We've completely dug over the garden and put terraces in and the plants so far are all thriving - however I'm now stuck. i simply can't figure out what to plant and where. I'm usually really good at this stuff but this one is stumping me. I'd be grateful for any advice or thoughts you have on this. Photos below/ attached to show its current state.

Planting a clematis where one has already grown

Question from Silentboo

In forum: General

I have just dug up my ridiculously massive and well established clematis praecox.
I have another (hopefully more manageable) clematis in a small pot at the moment. Can I plant it in the same hole?
I know there's a rule for roses, just wondered if the same applied to most plants?
