Blooming Rose Resources
Roses are possibly the most popular flowers. They are beautiful, romantic, strong-willed plants. Much is written about their history and cultivation. Old fashioned roses have recently made a comeback, and new varieties continue to impress.
There are so many different types of roses, and so many different ways to grow and enjoy them. Nothing can compare to freshly picked roses in a vase in the house. Rose history is really interesting, and breeders like David Austin are combining the best of the old rose characteristic with the new.
There are over two hundred roses in the Moosey garden, and for once most of their names are well known. Here are some websites which specialise in that phenomenal flower - the rose.
