DAVID AUSTIN ROSES
In the 1940s, when still just a teenager, David Austin was already fascinated with roses. Soon after, his hobby became his life. He released his first rose, ‘Constance Spry’, in 1961. Since then, he has released over 200 new roses, creating an unrivalled collection, beloved throughout the world. 75 years on, his objective remains the same – to create a more beautiful rose.
All David Austin roses have a collective style and reflect one man’s vision. All have beautiful blooms and in most cases, wonderful fragrance held on graceful attractive shrubs. A garden of these outstanding roses is hard to beat for the sheer exuberance of flower and fragrance.
Today, David Austin Roses remains a family business. David Austin has been joined by his son David and his grandson, Richard.
In 2019 ALL our DAVID AUSTIN ROSES, CLIMBERS & SHRUB will be just £19.99 each!! Compare that to the big garden centres!
Roses are extremely versatile and hardy plants that can be planted in a variety of positions and locations in the garden (for ideas and inspiration click here). When selecting a planting location, we recommend you consider the following points to ensure the rose thrives:
1. Ensure plenty of sunlight
2. Avoid intense competition from other plants
3. Avoid very exposed, windy sites
All roses appreciate being fed, particularly our repeat-flowering English Roses. If you wish to get the most out of your roses we always recommend feeding.
For the best results, we recommend two annual feeds:
