Could I suggest that this public garden be given its full title: Trevor Griffiths Rose Garden

An explanatory sign at Trevor Griffiths Rose Garden claims there are now 1200 roses planted. There appear to be very few double-ups. I visited on 11 October 2011 and although there wasn't a solitary rose in bloom, the garden looked an absolute picture with all the fresh spring growth and the immaculate maintenance. I took some photos which I shall post on HMF within a few days. Some of them are shots of individual plants not yet in bloom which I shall post on the individual rose variety pages.

Looking forward to your photos! This gives us a chance to see this far away garden.

I hope to revisit and take more photos in December, when the garden should be in full bloom. Even with no flowers at present, I was enthralled by the beautiful fresh, healthy growth and the variety of foliage from cultivar to cultivar. This garden was established in honour of Mr Trevor Griffiths, who was a noted heritage rosarian. Many of the roses were propagated from cuttings taken from his vast collection of heritage and David Austin roses.
