Planting David Austin Roses at My Farm

One thing I love is the intoxicating scent of a garden rose - especially an English rose.

Gardeners everywhere know rose hybridizer, David Austin, for his stunning English roses, which combine the forms and fragrances of old roses with the color range and repeat blooms of modern specimens. This year, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, and I, decided to order some new bushes and climbers - bare root plants - to add to my expansive flower cutting garden. They arrived this week - all in perfect condition. Ryan and Wilmer planted them yesterday.
