I recently asked help in deciding between Margo Koster and Boscobel roses. I'm so thankful to find this forum and I will tell you why. Before posing this ? on help me find, I had contacted a rosarian that was listed online. Her response was "simply choose a rose you like, it's trial and error and we learn from our mistakes". I needed some direction and I'm so thankful for the replies I got from this forum. You gave me details and bonefided experience. Your the real rosarians!

To help a little further, Charles and Brigid Quest-Ritson's book The Royal Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Roses, page 119 has a very good entry on some of the Koster roses including 'Anneke Koster', 'Dick Koster', 'Margo Koster', 'Morsdag', 'Vatertag', 'Orange Morsdag'. They are mostly fairly similar, only a variation in colour.

I certainly will look it up, I've gotten so interested in Koster and I've googled all I can find. Thank you!
Update; This must be the motherlode encyclopedia on roses. I see it for sale (yikes) but don't think I can be privy to peek inside lol. Maybe somehow I can get access through a library. Worth a try, cause I know it's intriguing.

They bred some very good Rhododendrons too.

I have a Scots Rose that I picked up very cheap from a local garden on an open day around 3 years ago. The lady who owned the garden didn't know it's name, and I have taken to calling it "Shuttifield Pink" for want of another name while I try and find out if it matches any known varieties. Shuttifield is the name of the garden it came from. If anyone can help me identify it I would be very grateful to know its name. It is so sweet and welcome in the Spring, and it deserves to be seen. It is a bit like some pics I have come across of "Burnet Double Pink", but I am pretty sure it is not quite the same. Has anyone any ideas?

The double pink I grow is darker coloured and has fewer petals.

I'm signed in using Google Chrome. For the last several days, neither Mozilla Firefox nor Safari will allow me to log in. I get a pop-up that says the browser is incompatible with the site. But I HATE Chrome. Is this some sort of bug that will soon be fixed? Hope so. Thanks! Malcolm

Am I mistaken, or are the thumbnails of the photo's displayed in another way... or is it just the last update of Firefox? They look brighter, sharper and with a hunch of a shadow beneath them, so they look lifted up from the background.
