Michael Marriott - David Austin Roses Ltd


  • Title:  Michael Marriott - David Austin Roses Ltd
  • Description:  "I have become a rather compulsive sniffer," admits British rose expert Michael Marriott. "It's a natural reaction to lean over and sniff a flower. If there's no fragrance you're disappointed. I believe this is doubly true with roses where the anticipation of fragrance is so strong. If a rose is not fragrant the disappointment is somehow deeper." Fortunately Marriott, the technical director and senior rosarian of David Austin Roses in Shropshire, England is rarely disappointed, certainly not on the job. The voluptuous English Roses of David Austin are generally regarded as among the most fragrant groups of roses available today. In addition to vigor and lush flowers, fragrance has been a hallmark of Austin breeding since the beginning in 1961. One of Marriott's tasks as senior rosarian is to oversee the official description of the fragrance of each of Austin's English Rose varieties.
