Tattenhall Garden Society talk 13 March - David Austin Roses

Home » News » David Austin Roses

David Austin may have died at the end of last year at 92, but his legacy goes on. It is said he put romance back into roses.

He was a farmer's son from Shropshire who created what we think of as the quintessential English Rose. He began breeding roses in the early 1950's but it took him nearly 10 years to come up with a commercially available specimen, Constance Spry. Since then he has introduced more than 200 cultivars, and they have become the must-have plants for any self respecting British gardener.

Michael Marriott the technical manager and senior rosarian of David Austin Roses, will give a talk to the Tattenhall Gardening Society on 13 March at 7.45pm. Michael is one of the world's most respected rose experts.

He is also well known for his rose garden design and his common sense approach to looking after roses. In his work he travels the globe, often sharing his expertise in lively radio, TV, newspaper and magazine interviews.
