The irresistible rise of the rose - Financial Times
Even more modest enthusiasts will relate to the covetousness that these plants inspire. At David Austin Roses, the Shropshire-based breeder of some of the best-loved modern varieties, sales have boomed, with a 200 per cent increase year on year last February for the sale of bareroot roses (which are sold while dormant and planted in winter). There was also a 134 per cent increase in 2020 in the sales of roses that were potted up, compared with the previous year.For many rose fanatics it’s the old roses that have a special charm, with their voluptuous velvety petals and incredible scent. When Manolo Blahnik was growing up on La Palma during the 1950s, his mother collected old roses from 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 moder...

Beer Co. in Palm Desert (77-770 Country Club Dr., Ste. D).Wild Bread Bakery sourdough loavesI cannot get enough of these sourdough loaves made by Lis Austin and Lara Simone in Pioneertown. The pair received their cottage bakery license in March right before the pandemic, but continued with socially distanced pickups — and thank goodness, because it's been a weekly source of carbs and inspiration. All of the bread is handcrafted and naturally leavened, "which means it's made with our sourdough culture rather than commercial yeast," Austin said. "Each loaf takes around 36 hours to make, starting with preparing the sourdough culture, mixing the dough, slowly fermenting the loaves, and ending with a hot bake in our hearth oven."media-image image-set="https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2020/11/25/PPAS/96c6f4f2-3e85-49ee-9c6f-69f2f1b41433-unnamed-2.jpg bestCrop, https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2020/11/25/PPAS/96c6f4f2-3e85-49ee-9c6f-69f2f1b41433-unnamed-2.jpg?crop=3023,2268,x0,y375 4:3, https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2020/11/25/PPAS/96c6f4f2-3e85-49ee-9c6f-69f2f1b41433-unnamed-2.jpg?crop=2268,3024,x302,y0 3:4, https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2020/11/25/PPAS/96c6f4f2-3e85-49ee-9c6f-69f2f1b41433-unnamed-2.jpg?crop=3023,1701,x0,y453 16:9" image-alt="Pioneertown-based Wild Bread bakery offers handcrafted and naturally leavened breads, which means they're made with a sourdough culture rather than commercial yeast.
