We bought our new build last year and I am very new to looking at garden things. Basically I don't know what I'm doing. Were starting to pull out some scrubby ground cover things which the developers put in and a hedge type thing, which we don't need. We've now been left with a couple of empty beds.

I'm choosing things that I like so so far i have peonies, camellia a rose as well as some tulips that are now during off.

Today in a fit of madness I bought some tea roses. Should I mix them in the bed with the other stuff or do a whole bed of roses (under the lounge window). I'm not sure if that would look a bit too weird? Having a hodge podge one side of the front door and all roses the other?

What would you advise?thank you

I think it's a modern look to do as you say and mix the roses in.

Personally, I like the way roses look in a mixed bed and when they're not flowering you don't end up with a side that's just twiggy!
