Roses are a fantastic flower. Its history goes back more than 4000 years and longer than any other refined plant. Roses symbolizes love and beauty.
It already existed in a primitive form back in the tertiary period, from where fossils with different plant parts from roses have been found. In the 19th century the number of varieties for sale began to rise, and in 1842 commercial gardener Martin Henriksen published a catalogue of 240 species and varieties.
The first Danish book on roses was released in 1855 by the Castle gardener Skjoldager, gardener at the widow Queen, Caroline Amalie, who created a rose garden at Sorgenfri Castle. Also, Napoleon D. 1 ‘s wife, Empress Josefine, was incredibly fond of roses and began the refinement of a large number of varieties at the beginning of the 20th century, (Source: Rosenhaven Rosenly).

In my garden there are a lot of roses, chosen from some scent, partly flowering time and, on the other, how resistant they are to diseases. And, like everything else, compromises are made.

Including photos of Yellow Chinatown, a climbing rose which gets between 150-200cm and approximately 100cm wide.

Bronze-colored climber Westweland with intoxicating powerful scent. Bloom from June.

The beautiful red rose is a hybrid that I have never found out what is called. I suspect, however, that it may well be Rosa Picasso. I found the plant many years ago and just knew it was a beautiful climbing rose and formidable is it.

The great white bush rose is called Helene Lykke Fund and is refined by Aksel Olsen approximately 1930. The bush rose has an intoxicating strong scent, which can be scented at a long distance especially in the evening. It can be up to 6m tall and 5m wide, so I would describe it as a bulky landscape rose. It is a healthy and shady rose that flouris from mid-June to mid-July.

The three stemmed roses are all hybrids with 5 years in my garden. For all the stemmed roses, it is a good idea to wrap the inoculated spot in the winter to protect from frost.

Roses are wild plants that require a lot of NPK fertilizer (N = nitrogen, P = phosphorus, K = potassium). I fertilize four times a year, in April, May, June and July.

Pruning of roses takes place around the birthday of Queen Margrethe in mid-April, when the danger of frost is supposed to be over.

All roses on this page are photographed in my garden ;0)
