Hi everyone, Could any of you nice folk out there please recommend a good climbing rose that will look good and do well on the front of our house? The property faces NORTH.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated



Golden showers is a very old yellow one that I seem to remember will grow on a north wall,but there is certainly another more modern yellow one - can't remember the variety even though i've grown it!

Zephirine Drouhin is a gorgeous, thornless, scented, deep pink lady who grows well on the permanently shaded north-facing wall round our front door.

Try touch typing lessons at your local technical college.
Time well spent.

I think there are a lot of us two fingered typists on here, Phil. It takes me twice as long to go back and correct my mistakes as it does to type them (trying to hurry) in the first place! I once did a touch typing course, and and tried and practiced so very hard, but knew from the very start I'd never get the hang of it. I still have to watch what my my fingers are doing. Thank goodness for a computer/word processor so no tippex is ever needed!
