David Austin Roses is one of the world's leading rose nurseries. The English Roses developed there have brought the rose to a new level of beauty and strength; their ability to flower continually throughout the summer and autumn makes them one of the most durable garden flowers. In this revised and updated edition, David Austin describes how he combines the beauty and fragrance of the Old Roses with the repeat-flowering and wide colour range of the Modern Roses. David presents seven groups of classification for his roses and advises how to grow and maintain them. Featuring more than 20 new rose varieties, all with detailed descriptions and updated photography throughout, this third revised edition of The English Roses is an essential reference for all rose lovers and gardeners.

David Austin OBE is the creator of the English Roses, an entirely new style of roses that have achieved international recognition. With his eldest son David J. C. Austin, he owns one of the world's leading rose nurseries, David Austin Roses. At Albrighton in Shropshire the family-run business has created rose gardens containing over 800 varieties. More than 1.2 million roses are grown for sale every year and the team carries out one of the largest rose breeding programmes in the world, selecting each year's new introductions after eight years of trialling. Born in 1926, David Austin has been breeding and hybridizing roses for more than seventy years and is still very active at the nursery, devoting most of his time to developing new roses. He was awarded the Victoria Medal of Honour by the Royal Horticultural Society in 2003 for his services to horticulture and in 2007 he received an OBE. He was awarded the Dean Hole Medal by the Royal National Rose Society and has received an honorary MSc from the University of East London for his work on rose breeding.
