A classic, large single blossom of perfect form tops each stem. Tea Roses usually have a good fragrance. They make a lovely garden plant but also do very well as a cut flower. Many are used for exhibiting and shows. They were named "Tea Roses" because the scent is similar to a newly opened packet of high quality tea.
Shrub Roses are suitable for growing as single bush specimens and are usually vigorous in habit. They can be used for hedging and often have a good scent. Many are known for their distinctive rose hips in autumn. They are also known for being somewhat thornier than other roses.
English Roses are a category where you will find the majority of "David Austin" roses.
C & K Jones are one of a select number of rose specisalists given permission to cultivate David Austin Roses
David Austin English roses which are either; more suited for climbing or can be trained as a climber.
The difference between Climbers and Ramblers is that climbers are repeat flowering with single flushes of blooms and ramblers flower once but offer a plant smothered in blooms in their season, (normally June to July). Ramblers do not need dead heading but climbers will produce more blooms if you dead-head regularly.
If a climber and rambler are planted together, this will offer summer-long colour. A late- summer clematis can be allowed to weave through the rose to offer an even longer season.
These plants lie between patio climbers and the full blown 10, 12 up to 15 foot climbers.
They have quite distinct attributes:
Floribundas and Grandifloras reign supreme in the border with plentiful clusters of blooms on each stem, produced on a vigorous plant.
The difference between a grandiflora and floribunda is that the former are normally a cross breed of a floribunda with a Hybrid tea rose. This has led to increasing popularity of floribundas in the florists garden as many do well as cut flowers. Koko Loco has been a firm favourite among our florist friends.
Floribundas come in a huge variety of styles, from small open, single flowers like Eye of the tiger or Blue Peter, large open singles such as Lest we forget; Rosette styles, like Marc Bolan; Multi-Petalled flowers like Absolutely Fabulous, to more traditional Tea rose shaped blooms such as Wedding Bells.
Patio roses are quite simply rose bushes that can be kept small. A Patio climber tends to be best kept under 4-5 feet tall and wide and can be pruned even smaller if desired.
Many of these patio climbers can be grown, quite successfully, out of a large, deep pot, in a suitable rose compost as long as they are well fed and watered. All climbers such as these perform well in sunny aspects and will flower in abundance, especially if you dead-head regularly.
These roses spread out and provide a carpet of colour in the flowering season. Bigger specimens would do well in areas you may want to disguise. Miniature types fit nicely into rockeries or patio gardens.
We have provided a letter code for each rose to give you an idea of how they perform.
TB (Tall, Bushy & Large) B-(Bushy, same width as height GH-(Ground hugging) GC-Smaller & ground covering) MG-(Miniature ground cover, great for rockeries)
Specifically for the smaller garden, these roses are basically dwarf floribundas. They are ideal for patios, narrow borders and the large rockery, and they give a real blaze of colour when planted in beds or in large tubs - although extra care must be taken to maintain them.
Plant 15-18ins. apart. S – 10-18ins., M – 18-24ins., T – 24ins. and over.
