    Hi all I hope everyone is having a nice autumn, here the colors are beautiful and I know it’s the perfect time to plant things and so I was wondering whether any of you could recommend fragrant roses that I might plant, I like to give a few new varieties a go. What are your fave’s? I’d really like them to smell good!

    Oh this is a good question. I have a sunsprite growing in my garden. It’s simply fabulous, and really smells delicious and sweet! You might want to give that one a try since it really transformed my garden! Now, I try to take my afternoon tea outside right next to my rose since it smells so good! Pairs so well with my scones I want to bite into the roses, too!

    @happyjoy thank you very much for your suggestion, I saw in my local nursery they had a few Sunsprites, I was hesitant to get one because it wasn’t blooming just now, but since you really like it I’ll give it a try. @sonatangy.aya I thank you as well but it seems it isn’t easy to find here.
