This blog reviews the latest products, plants and innovations in gardening. It also provides a link for my many gardening friends who are members of the GardenMessenger and Seedmessenger Yahoo groups and their sub-groups that I moderate.

Location: Australia

I am a semi-retired UK botanical garden curator and former international horticultural consultant, who has worked extensively in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Australia. I spend part of the year in Australia and part in Europe, mainly due to family and work commitments. I earn my living from writing and editing Internet copy, articles and books. I have written over fifty books on gardening and have been translated into twenty-four different languages. I am a former UK Garden Writer of the Year and a previous Quill & Trowel Award Winner from the Garden Writer’s Association of America. I am interested in developing gardening communities on the Internet and I manage the popular GardenMessenger Yahoo group, along with its various sub-groups like PondMessenger and SeedMessenger. I also edit International Water Gardener and its associated regional web-sites.

Festival of Roses - New Rose Launches

Rose of the Year 2006

This year, the Festival of Roses at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show will be exhibiting the Rose of the Year 2006, ‘Champagne Moment’, unveiling the Rose of the Year 2007, as well as celebrating 25 years of Rose of the Year, alongside some of the UK’s top rose growers. There will also be several rose-related talks and demonstrations throughout the week. The Rose of the Year 2007, ‘Tickled Pink’, will also be launched. Introduced by Fryers Roses and Roses UK, this floribunda produces masses of large, scented pink blossoms. It is free flowering and exceptionally easy to grow.

There will also be many other new introductions from the world’s top breeders. Details of all these and many of the other rose introductions of 2006 will be found in the newly created RoseMessenger pages on the GardenMessenger web-site.
