A Garden of Roses

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

Last year, I planted a new rose garden behind my main greenhouse not far from my flower cutting garden and raspberry bushes. The space is in full sun, so I knew it would be an excellent area for planting a variety of David Austin roses. Every gardener and rose expert is familiar with the rose hybridizer, David Austin, who started as a hobby breeder when he was a teen and went on to breed a collection of roses renowned around the world. His specimens have exquisite blooms and the most alluring fragrances. The plants in this garden are still small, but every one of them has bloomed and the flowers are breathtaking.
