The Rose Marquee at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show

A look at the other rose nurseries exhibiting at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, which finished on Sunday. Mattocks, Fryers, Bill le Grice, Style Roses, Harkness, Peter Beales, Eastcroft Roses, Pococks…. The Historic Roses Group too, a member of which I now am. Hybrid Teas and Floribundas, in the main, with modern shrubs, some climbers and ramblers, species roses too. A rainbow of colours from the very muted (Julia’s Rose, Nimbus) through to eye-searing (Super Trouper) and all points (and stripes) in between.

A list of the awards given in the Rose Marquee can be found at

Bill le Grice and David Austin Roses alone won Gold. I’ll post separately on the David Austin exhibit. Best in Show, my vote.
