In the middle of the Nineties my obsession for OGRs had been born and I started searching for and collecting "lost beauties" of rose varieties. My main interest are white roses, especially Bourbon and HP varieties.
In 2001 I started writing about roses at some garden forums. Sometimes additionally at garden magazins and booklets: Not a "real" book yet, but some thousands pages meanwhile.
In 2002 I had been a co-founder of Lost Beauties e. V. (German association for rare roses) and LB president until 2010.
In 2007 the Rosenpark project near Labenz (Northern Germany) had been found by Lost Beauties.
Since then it´s my main interest and "work of life".
The responsibility for the l´âge bleu Rosenpark is my personal one since 2010.
