Roses: Botany, Horticulture and History
Join Phil Lusby for an intimate survey of these hugely popular, important and perplexing group of plants. Learn some of their unusual breeding habits, how they have been developed and classified and how to cultivate them. We’ll also look at products from roses, how to choose them for your garden and how roses have been used in garden design over the centuries. The stories of a selection of major historical figures of the rose world is as colourful as the roses themselves. An optional day-trip is included to one of the very best collections of Gallica roses in Britain situated in a most superb walled garden.
