Roses for English Gardens  


The Rosarian is happy to present Gertrude Jekyll's classic, Roses for English Gardens. Written with Edward Mawley and originally published in 1902, this work has been enjoyed by generations of gardeners. We have included some of the photographs used to illustrate the book, but others are of too poor a quality to reproduce well and have been left out.

We'll be adding chapters regularly and if you'd like to hear about updates, make sure you've signed up for our mailing list.
