Overview

The National Trust owns many of the most famous and beloved rose gardens in this country, including Mottisfont, which has over 500 varieties, and the legendary Sissinghurst, where all NT 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.

From the author of very successful ‘Secret Gardens’, 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 habit; its wonderful fragrances; and, above all, its amazing versatility. 

Open this book and it’s soon clear why Susan Hill described roses as ‘the most seductive and breathtakingly beautiful of all flowers’. In these stunning pages, Claire Masset celebrates the rose’s beauty, variety, history while revealing some of the country’s best rose gardens including Mottisfont in Hampshire, and Sissinghurst, Kent.

 

'This book is so evocative you can almost smell the scent of roses coming off the page.’ - Daily Mail
