I adore roses and over the years have planted a number of them in the garden. I buy @david_austin_roses for the traditional and highly scented varieties, and they always take successfully. .
Beautiful Brother Cadfael for your Friday flower 💞
This David Austin was my first pink crush as it reminded me of a peony, and I didn’t think I’d be able to grow them here.
I planted the variety Madame JV Odier about 6 weeks ago, so fingers crossed for a bloom in the next year or two!
First year sleep~
Second year creep~
Third year leap~
So the saying goes at @fabflowers.florist.nursery .
David Austin rose “Princess Alexandra of Kent”. “A strong and delicious tea fragrance, which changes to lemon, eventually taking on hints of black currants” - like a glass of fine wine from my garden!
We LOVE seeing how photographers capture our work! Thanks to all the amazing photographers who share their photos with us! .

The gardens are in full bloom this time of year. It rained a lot last weeks and that gave the opportunity to see what roses handle the wet English weather well. All the David Austin roses released in the last years were doing extremely well. No black spot in sight ☔️ #roses#rosegarden#davidaustinroses#gaygardener
A trip to the wonderful David Austin Roses to choose some plants for our garden. We need climbing roses and bulky shrubby things for borders. 😆 My favourite climbing rose was Strawberry Hill, and Aaron’s was Tess of the d’Urbervilles. I’m tempted to go with Aaron’s choice over mine because I like the book. Aaron likes red roses and I like pale pink or cream ones. They say a good garden is built on simple choices. HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHEN THE SELECTION IS THIS GOOD? ... Hence we came back with nothing more than scrambled thoughts. 😂🙈 Thankfully a week after our visit my Grandad saved the day and found spare cuttings of his climbing roses, which rids me of my painful indecisiveness but also means our garden will be special in a sentimental sorta way, and you can’t beat that. (They are also pale pink so I win. Haha) 💖😁🙏🏻
