The Teddington Gardener

Roses all the way at Hampton Court Flower Show

Rather a cheat, this, a gallery of the Rose Marquee exhibits, but time is short and I will lay claim to the ‘if a picture paints a thousand words’ argument and leave you with twenty four thousand of them…

I would make a mention of the Historic Roses Group, who were once again exhibiting (and gained a Bronze Medal this year). I joined last year – a five year membership –  and Ann Cannings, their Membership secretary remembered me and thus I have made a diary note for the 6th September for their AGM, to be held at Broughton Hall, Oxfordshire, with a visit to the garden at Broughton Grange, created by Tom Stuart-Smith.

Coincidentally, the Head Gardener at Hinton Ampner was also there on the stand and he spoke at the Heritage Rose Foundation Conference I attended recently at Mottisfont. Small World!
