If You Love David Austin Roses…..

Since my rose garden began, I have had English Roses. The wonderful work of David Austin of Shropshire, England has won the hearts of many a gardener whose desire it is to have beautiful blooms and wonderful fragrance.

I began my “Austin” collection with two shrubs of ‘Golden Celebration’ planted in the early spring of 2008. The event was logged in my garden journal and was blogged here.

Since that time, I have added a few more Austins to my collection as follows:

I now have a total of nine shrubs of David Austin Roses. All have performed very well in my Alabama rose garden and have provided us with many hours of enjoyment.

It will be my great joy this Saturday to welcome the Chief Rosarian for David Austin roses to Rose Chat Radio to talk about the introduction of six new David Austin roses for 2013. Michael Marriott is an expert on growing and caring for English roses and he’ll also provide tips for growing these beautiful roses in your garden. If you have a question you would like me to ask our guest, you can leave a comment here or call into the live broadcast at  (347) 677-1870 on Saturday 11/3/2012 at 9:30 CST.  The show streams live over the internet and is available on-demand afterward and can also be downloaded via iTunes.
