Greenwich Park's Rose Garden


It was the rose bloom peak in July when I came to the remarkable Greenwich Park in London, UK. The popular Rose Garden is on the eastern side of the park and is arranged in front of the 18th century elegant Georgian villa that was the residence of the Park Ranger. Now there is a collection of works of art belonging to the English heritage.


I liked a semi-circular design of the rose beds. There was a stand saying that  hybrid tea and floribunda roses are predominantly grown there. The history of this planting is that it was originally created and then enmediumd at the end of 20th century.


At the 1990th it was enclosed on a yew hedge and since that time the Rose Garden became extremely popular. Situated on top of a hill, visitors enjoy sweeping views across the River Thames to St Paul's Cathedral and beyond.


Since 1990 more than hundred of rose varieties have been planted in the garden, it made me familiar with various of them as   tea hybrid, floribunda, patio roses, old fashion and park roses.


When I have been walking through the rose alleys I was surrounded by bright colors and pleasant scents, it was the feast for eyes and nose :-) 
Although I don't grow hybrid tea rose due to our cold climate I love them and always pay attention on them. The froribunda roses are more suitable and hardy to our northern climate therefore I have written out their names from the gardener's stand. 


Of course, I was interested in the experience of a local gardener who watered roses. I listened to him talking about his daily work in summer and in winter (photo # 2 on the left) .

  15. I love roses, and this is one amazing display. I don't grow anything now except Knockout roses because they seem to make it through the warm summers, don't need hand holding, and they survive being buried under feet of snow for months at a time. Definitely not the same quality, but it gives me a little bit of rose enjoyment.

    1. It's my dream Judy, to grow roses that don't need any care and survive under the snow. But.., it's difficult in our climate.Your rose Knockout is lovely, I know and love this variety.
