The best time to visit David Austin Rose Gardens is in early summer, at the beginning of June. It is so beautiful and inspiring, that it is almost impossible to leave the place without buying some plants.
They care for each plant by hand, the same as it was at the beginning, about sixty years ago. It is also educational, as you can talk with the staff and get professional advice.
There are 2 acres of rose gardens. They are home to over seven hundred varieties of roses. This includes the National Collection of English Roses which blooms in fragrant flushes from early June until the winter’s first frost.

After this wonderful walk, we head to the plant center. What you saw is the gardens, is here for sale. I am a big fan when it comes to David Austin Roses. In my small garden in Liverpool, I have 14 roses, of which 11 of them are David Austin Roses.
