Dozens of roses at New Covent Garden Flower Market
I’ll be writing blog posts about the amazing floristry demonstrations by Neill Strain and Claire Cowling soon, but in the meantime, just wanted to let you see the wide range of gorgeous roses which are available.
Many thanks to Bloomfield for allowing me to take photos of their gorgeous roses!
By the way, last Friday seemed to be a special day for this favourite English flower. Alan Titchmarsh‘s programme, Love your Garden, was dedicated to roses with Alan demonstrating how to build a rose garden, Laetitia Maklouf showing you how to make rosewater and Valentine Warner making a spicy sauce using roses.
And on BBC2 on Gardener’s World, Monty Don showed you how to take cuttings from your favourite roses to bulk up stock for free and Rachel de Thame visited a beautiful rose garden….
