Roses are a must in any garden – there is a place for them anywhere even if it is just a pot! We built the Il Pergolato Di Rosa as the main feature but all around Uccello Lane there are roses – so we always have flowers somewhere.

Roses – Shirley Minster from Creswick

As part of the Open Garden for Creswick we went to Shirley Minster beautiful rose garden. It is a rather romantic garden in very difficult conditions fighting rabbits, a hard clay soil and a very limited water supply. The  Smoke bush is amazing but the heroines are the Roses.
