For a large flower, this rose variety produces big, cream-coloured blooms from July to September that are highly scented and will give your garden a regal touch.

Another fully hardy shrub, this flower will work well in a large pot or an informal hedge.

Rose roots grow deep, so dig a deep hole twice as wide as the plant’s roots.
