    The rambling shrub rose is now in flower, lovely scent fills this corner of the garden, no idea of the variety, it was here when we bought the house.

    These are all scented roses

    There are some great looking roses with little or no scent, I may add one or two once I have enough scent in the garden, with the night scented stock as well, the gardens a delight to be in later in the day.

    This is a ground cover rose which I planted over 20 years ago. Over the decades it's spread out to around 10 foot, and is covered in these lovely dark pink flowers for a couple of months.

    I'm not good with roses at all, but this one seems indestructible and doesn't get greenfly or blackspot etc. Doing a google search it looks a bit like Rosa Hertfordshire, but I can't remember if that was its name or not.

    I'm running out of garden for a big rose like that one, but looks a belter of a rose.

    I need some general advice please. I have realised that limited physical ability means I can no longer grow veg in the ground, so I am clearing it in small(ish) portions and want to fill it with something fairly low maintenance, (no squatting or kneeling required) and wondered whether roses might fit the bill? I do love roses, though I've never grown any. I'll carry on with the veg in my raised beds and trugs.

    I'm joining the rose brigade.

    Just ordered 4 on a whim, I get itchy fingers around this time of year.

    Can I plant them through weed membrane to keep down the weeds under them?

    Why not use ground cover like hardy geraniums?
