Roses in a Cottage Garden

By Newyorkrita
February 12, 2013

I love my roses, but I have never cared for the look of any formal type of garden, not even rose gardens. Instead, I have planted my many roses informally in my garden, which is very much a cottage garden. Take a picture tour with me to see my roses.

I also love the informal mixture. No matter how many roses I grow, I always strive to have a garden with roses in it rather than a rose garden. You've done a marvelous job of doing that.

Absolutely gorgeous! I envy your ability to grow your roses so close together. Your plants look so lush and healthy, without any signs of too much moisture from close quarters. Well done!
