    New Roses for 2015 - David Austin Roses

    in Gardening

    For Spring 2015, David Austin introduces four new English Roses to U.S. and Canadian gardeners. All four feature classic Austin rose attributes – a romantic old-fashioned flower form, heady fragrance and masses of blooms all season long. Michael Marriott is our guest on today's broadcast. He's the chief rosarian at David Austin roses and we'll be chatting about this exceptional collection of roses. 


    “We expect gardeners will be excited by these appealing English Roses,” says Austin’s senior rosarian Michael Marriott. “Each has irresistible qualities, the kind that lead gardeners to discover they have ‘just the spot’ for this!”


    Available by mail order from www.davidaustinroses.com,


    ‘The Lady Gardener’ – This is an intensely fragrant, apricot-colored rose that’s astoundingly floriferous, nearly burying itself in perfume and flowers from early summer to frost and has added it to their list of Most Fragrant English Roses.


    The Albrighton Rambler’ – Typically a rambler rose delivers a spectacular show, but blooms only once a season. ‘The Albrighton Rambler’ blooms repeatedly all season long. 


    Thomas à Becket’ – Whereas Austin’s roses often recall an Old Rose in look, this rose is closer to a species rose, being more natural and shrubby in growth. The large red flowers are shallowly cupped, opening as informal rosettes, with petals that quickly reflex as the flowers age. 


    Maid Marion’ – This 2015 North American introduction has everything gardeners prize in David Austin's English Roses. The buds open in rounded cups with large outside petals.

    Coffee for Roses - C. L. Fornari

    in Gardening

    Rose Chat Podcast welcomes C. L. Fornari - "The Garden Lady" author of Coffee for Roses. 


    Word-of-mouth may be a great way to learn about some products, but word-of-mouth gardening tips can be a very bad idea. The age-old practice of passing along gardening tips and tricks is no guarantee you will get a good result...it might even do the opposite.  In her new book, garden expert C. L. Fornari looks at 71 common garden practices and uncovers the truth behind the lore.  Do marigolds keep the bugs out of the veggie patch? Will rusty nails turn hydrangeas blue? With humor and affection, she goes back in time to sort out the good, the bad and the just plain silly...and tells us why. COFFEE FOR ROSES combines gardening history and expert advice into one useful, time- and money-saving package. The author’s award-winning full color photography is throughout.
