David Austin Roses

Rose porn

Love roses? How could you not love David Austin who set out to breed better roses in the 1950s and created a world-famous collection reflecting his passion for beautiful blooms and (usually) fragrance.

His legacy lives on at David Austin Roses in Staffordshire and you can visit to look around the nursery and gorgeous gardens with more than 700 varieties blooming from early summer.

The Long Garden includes the collection of old roses flowering once in early summer; modern shrub roses, climbers and ramblers extend the flowering season to late autumn.
