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…
