The Chelsea Flower Show is one of the most prestigious flowers and plants exhibitions in the world, attracting Royalty and celebrities alike. Her Majesty The Queen is an avid supporter of the Chelsea Flower Show and visits the competition yearly.
The intention of the festival is always to inspire visitors and encourage them to recreate part of the display in their own gardens and homes. Every year, the ‘Rose of the Year’ competition takes place at this festival and one of the most ardent winners is the David Austin Garden Rose with 24 Gold Medals so far! As one of the most sought after roses worldwide with all luxury florists, David Austin Roses command a high price and are compared to diamonds, amongst flower lovers and connoisseurs.
The competition criteria for Rose of Year are colour, scent, size, health and easy maintenance. These are some of the more important characteristics of the winning rose. David Austin Garden roses never disappoint in any of these categories.
In this increasingly busy world, taking time to appreciate and smell the roses is not just a saying. It’s an attitude encouraged by flowers lovers, breeders and growers hoping these exceptional roses will add beauty to everyone’s daily life.
