[From Playing at Creation, American Rose Annual 1977, by Sean McCann, p. 97:] To my knowledge there is only one professional rose grower who has set out to breed roses for the show bench. This is Jim Sandy of Bristol, England. And the reason for his interest is simple enough: before he became a professional nurseryman Jim Sandy was one of Britain's top exhibitors, and he still loves the big 'uns.
