How I chose the best Fragrant Roses for my Garden

It was inevitable that I would want to get hold of the best fragrant roses ever! What is a real rose without a perfume?

Unfortunately, so many roses today have been hybridized out of their scents!

But I was not to be daunted. I was determined to find the best fragrant roses out there no matter what their shape or size.

So I flipped through all the catalogues I could find and tried to choose what were going to be my 5 most highly perfumed roses.

But did it work for me?

Of course not!  You can’t smell a catalogue.

Back to the nursery where I promised myself I wouldn’t buy a single rose this time if it didn’t have a powerful perfume!

So there I was flitting down the nursery path delicately sniffing at each rose like an overweight butterfly!

Don’t go that route!  It’s overwhelming and all you end up with is a bee up your nose!

I’ll save you the bother and tell you what worked for me after much trial and error.  In the next post I’ll tell you about my top 5 fragrant roses.  I promise you – they’re real winners!
