Roses and Rose Gardens Summary

Roses and Rose Gardens by Claire Masset

From the author of very successful 'Secret Gardens', this is a visually stunning celebration of England's favourite flower: its long history and rich symbolism; the beauty and diversity of its flowers, foliage and habit; its wonderful fragrances; and, above all, its amazing versatility. The National Trust owns many of the most famous and beloved rose gardens in this country, including Mottisfont, which has over 500 varieties, and the legendary Sissinghurst, where all NT gardeners are sent to learn the art of rose pruning. As well as showcasing 25 of these gardens, the book spotlights 20 varieties of rose to talk about in detail, describing the individual quality of each rose - why it makes it a good choice, where you can grow it and suggestions on how you might combine it with other plants.
