Roses and Rose Gardens

Claire Masset


This is a visually stunning celebration of England's favourite flower: its long history and rich symbolism, the beauty and diversity of its flowers, foliage and habitat, its wonderful fragrances and, above all, its amazing versatility.

The National Trust owns many of the most famous and beloved rose gardens in that country, including Mottisfont, which has over 500 varieties, and the legendary Sissinghurst, where all National Trust gardeners are sent to learn the art of rose pruning. As well as showcasing 25 of these gardens, the book spotlights 20 varieties of rose to talk about in detail, describing the individual quality of each rose – why it makes it a good choice, where you can grow it and suggestions on how you might combine it with other plants.
