and the new 2015/16 Handbook of Roses, which I picked up at the first RHS London Rose Show today…
and a duck, at Kew Gardens, to round things off!!
The Rose Garden at Kew Gardens today – with a lot of roses popping but still much, much, much more to come – a fine selection of English roses from David Austin, a decent collection of Old Roses and a mix of wild & species roses.
The folks at Kew have been planting new roses – creating new rose beds as well, so it seems that the rose garden is getting the attention it deserves and I’m very happy about that. I look forward to watching the season progress.
And I think I have to plan a trip to Mottisfont Abbey too – the National Collection of Old Roses and their Spiritual Home…
One thought on “Roses at Kew Gardens – Wild Roses, Old Roses, English Roses. A Grand Start and so much more to come…”
I would love to see Kew Gardens one day…the rose photos are really lovely and so is the duck!
