ROSA ‘GRA­HAM THOMAS’

AT this time of year, roses are at their most beau­ti­ful.

There are so many to choose from but this week it’s Rosa ‘Gra­ham Thomas’, a beau­ti­ful English rose from the David Austin breed­ers.

Its tall habit makes it a good climb­ing rose with a de­li­cious fra­grance and the most won­der­ful rich yel­low cupped blooms.

Voted the world’s most pop­u­lar rose in 2003, it was named af­ter one of the most in­flu­en­tial gar­den­ers of his time.

He gath­ered a col­lec­tion of old roses which formed the basis of the Na­tional Col­lec­tion at Mot­t­is­font Abbey in Hamp­shire.
