The Journal - Autumn 2008
The Autumn 2008 issue of the Historic Rose Journal reflects one of the great advantages of membership of the Historic Roses Group — the possibility of joining one of the Group’s carefully planned but relaxed and friendly tours of great rose gardens. There is not only a witty and informative description of last Summer’s tour of Touraine but an insider’s view of the ramblers growing in one of the gardens visited. There is also a report on a one-day visit in late June to three notable gardens in Kent. A short article introduces us to ‘Rosa Mundi’ in an unfamiliar guise — as the emblem of an Italian city. The issue is completed by two book reviews and an extract from one of the books reviewed — an explanation of what makes a Tea rose a Tea.
