Lady Salisbury

"The seldom seen Lady Salisbury is the frilliest, most feminine rose I have. It works beautifully with Desdemona (gal pals) and has a hint of clove to the scent." - Wavell

Cottage Mix

"A cottagey moment with roses, delphinium and foxglove." - Wavell

Graham Thomas Rose

"Graham Thomas was my first David Austin rose, and has been a delight for many years. It never fails to put on a show with glorious golden flowers and a fruity scent. It tends to get a bit of black spot, though." - Wavell
