New booklet 'Older Climbing Roses'

Older Climbing Roses - by Charles Quest-Ritson

Charles Quest Ritson, internationally renowned garden history writer, lecturer and rosarian has produced this beautiful booklet on the best of the older climbing roses.

The HRG is in the process of producing several such illustrated booklets dealing with rose character, culture and history in full colour. Charles’ booklet is the second in this series. It deals most helpfully with how the different roses perform in a garden situation, therefore will be invaluable to those planning to plant these wonderful older varieties. Also included is helpful information on how to find these roses.

The new booklet is liberally illustrated with photos, taken by Charles, both of roses growing in his own garden, and in the many glorious gardens he has visited around the world.

‘Older Climbing Roses’ was published with the generous support of Robert Mattock of Robert Mattock Rare Roses Ltd.

It is A5 in size, has 37 pages and is available (including postage) as follows:

UK: £5.00 Published EU: £6.00 REST Of THE WORLD: £7.00
