Garden Views



About 10 or so years ago I went to England to visit a childhood friend. While there I fell in love with the old garden roses at Sissinghurst. When I came home out came the few token hybrid teas bought at local nurseries..dug up almost all the the combined rose list and was on my way. I began with shrub roses, which remain the backbone of the garden...the Bourbons, Hybrid Perpetuals and stripes have been added. I am not organized enough to have the roses in groups of classes.. or by color..I don't fancy rose canes so there's mass underplanting all over. Roses act as hosts to clematis and peonies... I'd say that the garden is informal and immature..others call it imaginative...
