Stop and smell the roses!

A beautiful place to spend a couple of hours! There are more than 5,000 roses in this heritage garden so it is well worth a visit!

The garden is beyond the capacity of the one part-time gardener and the small band of volunteers. Most roses bushes need dead-heading. and the climbing roses need a heavy prune and training onto the trellis. They are currently growing wild in all directions.

A wonderful visit. The rose's were past their full bloom but there were plenty of blooms open. We were surprised at how few people were there. The vegetable garden is worth looking at.

The sheer variety, expanse, kaliadescope of colour was breathtaking. The scent and sight was just beautiful. Old fashioned roses rubbed shoulders with the latest blooms.

The gardens have matured nicely since our last visit about 8 years ago. Well worth a visit, especially in Spring.

We went mid November so all the roses were in full bloom. What a treat. It is a great display and lets the gardener see the roses in flower so they can make an informed selection.

Outstanding collection and presentation of modern and old world roses. The best time is the festival of the roses in November. I visited again in January when we had extremely hot weather and it looked like a wilderness!

I vfisited the National Rose Garden when I stayed at Woolmers in September 2014. Sadly it was not rose season, but even so the gardens were beautiful. The apple trees were in full bloom and the bumble bees were happily dancing from blossom to blossom. The tulips were also blooming. The gardens are very well set out as is the... More
