The Fragrance of Old Garden Roses by Robert Calkin

Fragrance of Old Roses by Robert Calkin

Robert Calkin, formerly Chief Perfumer for Yardley and currently the fragrance consultant to David Austin Roses, produced this booklet in a modest format some years ago.

The HRG has several such booklets dealing with rose character, culture and history produced in this simple form and is in the process of reproducing them in a full colour with pictures. Robert’s booklet is the first in this series.

The new booklet is liberally illustrated with photos taken by Robert of roses growing in his own garden.

It is A5 in size, has 20 pages and is available (including postage) as follows:

UK: £4.00 EU: £5.00 REST Of THE WORLD: £6.00
