Welcome. It’s great to have you here. Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned rose gardener, this is the place for you, especially if you grow your roses in a temperate coastal climate.
My name is Linda, and I’ve been a professional horticulturist since 1995, specialising in roses since 2002.
My aim is to create a site filled with interesting and useful articles for the rose gardener, helping you with all aspects of rose growing starting from the ground up. These articles will include a wide variety of rose care topics including planting, feeding, watering, fertilising, pruning, soils, and dealing with insects, pests and diseases.
I will be adding new content regularly, including how-to instructional articles, news and information from the rose growing world. Drop by often to enjoy this growing collection of pictures and how-to tips.
There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to
creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.
