Nothing says early summer like the rose, the Queen of flowers, is a garden plant that should be in every garden. Roses also have a long history as a symbol of commitment, passion, romance, love and sacrifice. Their individual colours are also steeped in tradition. White is for purity and innocence, yellow is for friendship and joy but can be for jealousy. A lavender rose signifies enchantment and, of course, a single red rose tells the recipient ‘I love you’. Bush roses, standard roses, climbing roses or espalier roses, there is one for every garden.
