Planting Roses, Rose Gardening, Designing with Roses, English Roses


Dreaming of a resting spot where you could surround yourself with fragrance, color and beauty? Why don't you inspire yourself from this vignette and re-create a similar garden haven? Grow profusely blooming rose bushes around a sitting area, add Alchemilla mollis (Lady's Mantle) and Geranium (Cranesbill) to create an intimate garden room which will invite you to sit in the company of the glorious and fragrant rose blossoms.

All plants are recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society. Fragrant and easy to grow, they will attract the energy of butterflies. Enjoy!
