roses for the coast
you please advise the names of any climbing roses that may tolerate
coastal conditions? Many thanks.
are very tolerant, but if you are very close to the sea, you could
get bad salt burning, which damages the leaves and buds like a leaf
scorch. Some varieties to try are 'Dublin Bay', 'Westerland', 'Compassion',
'Bantry Bay' and 'Uetersen'. It would pay to visit your local garden
centre to see what varieties they have that are suited to your location.
