Landscaping with Roses by Michael Marriott
May 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
Michael Marriott is one of the world’s leading rosarians. He is also well-known for his rose garden design, and is an advocate of practical gardening techniques and organic methods. As a garden designer, he is known for dense romantic beds whether purely roses or mixed with perennials. His enthusiasm is infectious, and his knowledge of roses is encyclopedic, especially for species roses, old roses, climbers and ramblers, the best modern roses and of course, David Austin’s English Roses.
Michael was an integral part of David Austin Roses for 35 years at the firm’s headquarters in Albrighton where he played an important part in the development and popularization of English Roses. He has intimate knowledge of all of the 200 plus English Roses bred and introduced by David Austin Roses.
“Roses are incredibly variable and versatile plants, they can be used in very many different ways in the garden from the very formal to the completely informal and from the intimate to the large scale. Not only can they look even more beautiful in association with other plants it can also help with reducing pest and disease problems. It is easy to argue that they are the most garden worthy of all plants.”
