The English Roses

The English Roses

David Austin Roses is one of the world’s leading rose nurseries. The English Roses developed there have brought the rose to a new level of beauty and strength; their ability to flower continually throughout the summer and autumn makes them one of the most durable garden flowers.

In this revised and updated edition, David Austin describes how he combines the beauty and fragrance of the Old Roses with the repeat-flowering and wide colour range of the Modern Roses. David presents seven groups of classification for his roses and advises how to grow and maintain them.

Featuring more than 20 new rose varieties, all with detailed descriptions and updated photography throughout, this third revised edition of The English Roses is an essential reference for all rose lovers and gardeners.
