Pink as far as you can see on mid-summer’s day.
Half a million Damascene rose buds open in front of the more than two thousand organic Paeonia lactiflora, with a backdrop Rosa canina, cascading over hedges up to ten feet tall.
The aroma is indescribably heavenly – as only English grown roses are. The aroma is light tending almost to a light-headedness, without the heavy overtones produced by the extreme heat of the Mediterranean. Exciting new products coming from the damascena later this year, as well as organic paeonia root and a substantial crop of about twenty thousand organic Astragalus, all on it’s way. Watch this space!
Even the Achillea have gone pink this year!
