The irresistible rise of the rose - Financial Times
France and England. “She took such care of them and they smelt so beautiful – it is the smell of my childhood,” says Blahnik from his home in Bath, where every corner of his terrace is smothered in pink roses, including the climber “Mortimer Sackler” that inspired his “Trellis” stiletto boot.For Blahnik the rose is interwoven with everything he loves about Englishness, from the damask blooms of country house chintz to the waft of Floris’s rose scent that enchanted him when he first arrived in London in the early ’70s. “Roses are a part of the culture and why I came to England.”His passion for the old roses includes the extraordinary striped “Rosa Mundi”, which dates back to the 13th century, and the Bourbon roses, such as the luscious “Souvenir de la Malmaison”, which were bred from the early 19th century. “They open so beautifully with so many layers – they are incredibly mysterious.” To see similar varieties in full froth, head to Mottisfont in Hampshire where an old vegetable garden was repurposed as home to the national collection of around 2,000 old roses.In Rose, a cultural history of the flower, author Catherine Horwood traces how roses have been woven into traditions, rituals and symbolism since the ancient civilisations. But it was during the 19th century that plant hunters, collectors and breeders all contributed to a boom in their cultivation; when the China roses were brought to Europe it opened up new possibilities – they had a long flowering season, distinctive scent and a new palette of colours, all of which could be bred into new hybrids.Roses can loosely be divided into old and modern. The old roses are once flowering gallicas, damasks, albas, centifolias and the heavenly scented moss roses, or the later-developed repeat-flowering bourbons, China roses, noisettes, Portland and tea roses. The modern roses – floribundas, hybrid teas, polyanthus, grandifloras, shrub roses – were developed from the 19th century. In 1867 Jean-Baptiste Guillot bred the first hybrid tea rose, “La France”, and in the same decade, Wiltshire farmer Henry Bennett formalised the breeding system and introduced 10 hybrid teas, from which our modern garden roses are descended.Using roses in wilder settings is also seeing a revival. Lady Ursula Cholmeley has restored 12 acres of borders, terraces and meadows within Easton Walled Garden in Lincolnshire. Among her ideas was a wildflower meadow, where roses would be trained on tall metal supports of her own design.As the plant’s stems reach the top of the support they are then trained down onto strainers – when a rose stem is pulled down it will produce many more lateral flowering shoots. “We are still learning,” says Cholmeley of her rose meadow, where in midsummer fountains of roses float above vetches, orchids and golden grasses. “The roses need to be vigorous and the stems need to be lax enough for training, and some are not hardy enough – there’s a ferocious frost pocket on the meadow.”Her favourites include the ramblers, the blush white “Adélaïde d’Orléans” and magenta “Veilchenblau”, as well as David Austin’s “La...

Sharon Hull, This Week in the Garden | Thankful for gardening on Central Coast - Santa Cruz Sentinel
Watching the tiny golden Lesser Goldfinches flitting from my feeder to my fountain where they enthusiastically bathe, hearing their musical calls to each other, fills me with thanks that such beauty comes to my garden. And watching the butterflies, most often the brilliant orange and black of the Monarch and Gulf Fritillary adults, never fails to delight my senses and remind me to be grateful that I can grow the flowers that they need. May you too find this kind of contentment and satisfaction as you ponder the gardening joys of this Thanksgiving season.
