New Rose bed
After 35 years gardening I'm planning to make my first rose garden. I'm thinking of having a row of standards down the centre of a narrowing bed (1m wide by 10m), under- planted with other varities. Any suggestions on what to buy. I'm a complete rose novice!

Choose just a couple of varieties that you like, not a dolly mixture!
Choose the varieties showing least leaf disease now as these are more healthy and avoid spraying.
Standards need good support of a stake.
