I liked a semi-circular design of the rose beds. There was a stand saying that hybrid tea and floribunda roses are predominantly grown there. The history of this planting is that it was originally created and then enmediumd at the end of 20th century.
At the 1990th it was enclosed on a yew hedge and since that time the Rose Garden became extremely popular. Situated on top of a hill, visitors enjoy sweeping views across the River Thames to St Paul's Cathedral and beyond.
Since 1990 more than hundred of rose varieties have been planted in the garden, it made me familiar with various of them as tea hybrid, floribunda, patio roses, old fashion and park roses.
When I have been walking through the rose alleys I was surrounded by bright colors and pleasant scents, it was the feast for eyes and nose :-)
Although I don't grow hybrid tea rose due to our cold climate I love them and always pay attention on them. The froribunda roses are more suitable and hardy to our northern climate therefore I have written out their names from the gardener's stand.
Of course, I was interested in the experience of a local gardener who watered roses. I listened to him talking about his daily work in summer and in winter (photo # 2 on the left) .
