THE ROSE QUEEN
As a child I was fascinated with roses! Every Sunday when visiting my grandparent’s rambling, romantic, country garden with its fish pond and every type of flower and vegetable imaginable, the plants I was most drawn to were roses.

ABOUT THE ROSE PRINCESSES
Our part of the fairy tale starts with Mum, The ROSE QUEEN. We grew up with gardens displaying rich, vibrant coloured, strongly fragranced rose blooms.
Our home was full of stunning roses and powerful scents so it’s no surprise that we have become part of the ‘tale’. As the Rose Queen travelled the world attending rose conferences and meeting rose breeders, she’d return telling tales of introductions to new and unique rose varieties. Roses she’d never seen before!
