Shane Cowley asked 15 years ago
I want to plant roses on a windy exposed site that is west facing. I want the roses to cover a low timber fence. Could you suggest a suitable variety that isn’t too thorny as the kids play in this area as well. Ideally a red flowering climber. Thanks

There are very few thornless roses, but a good one is ‘Zepherine Drouhin’. Most roses will take some exposure and ‘Dublin Bay’ is a very good red, repeat flowering small climber.
