Roses

Voted the nation's favourite flower, most roses are excellent for cutting and many have a delicious perfume. If floor-space is limited, cover the walls with a climbing or rambling rose - the thorny stems of which will help deter unwanted visitors. Otherwise, choose a rose bush that has a long flowering period, good resistance to disease, or even produces decorative hips.
