A slide show – the first of many to come – from an afternoon spent in the three Rose Gardens at Mottisfont Abbey, near Romsey in Hampshire. Rose Heaven.
The collection of Old Roses, shrub roses, climbers and ramblers must be one of the most extensive and complete in the country – the rose gardens are certainly beautiful and there is much else at Mottisfont to enjoy. Watch this space for more photos and information. If you have the chance to visit, from now until the end of June maybe, do make a pilgrimage!
