David Austin has achieved another Gold Medal at the world's
premier flower show. The medal was awarded by the Royal Horticultural
Society for another superb display of roses, and follows many years
of success at the event.
The new format rose stand - based on part of the famous
David Austin Rose gardens in Albrighton - is resplendent with beautiful
beds of fragrant English Roses and arches of climbers and ramblers.
A sculpture specially crafted by Pat Austin stands at
one end of the stand as a focal point and adds the finishing touch to
a wonderful rose garden display.
