Welcome to Find That Rose … the website.
This website is based on the variety nursery section of the 35th Annual Publication Find That Rose.Please see section on how to use the site. If you would like to purchase the full book then see coupon on the site
The sudden loss of the Royal National Rose Society this Spring highlights the importance of Find That Rose and this website has increased as the Society used to distribute 400-600 copies a season. We continue to see the Growers numbers go down , but this site and the full booklet shows trusted UK Growers and suppliers.
Support is needed for Find That Rose to continue. I certainly hope this is not the last one; as equally that would see the end of the website. I still get very frustrated about sites saying they can find a variety, only to find that all they are doing is no more than listing varieties old and new. There is no doubt hundreds listed are no longer in commerce or not available in the U.K. These sites give false hope to people seeking to find a historic, or sentimental named rose. That is one of the reason I went to the expense of putting Find That Rose (variety/Grower section) on the web. It has cost me in sales of the book but gives me the satisfaction of helping more people to find an elusive variety that means a lot to them.
I hope that this will not be the last Edition of Find That Rose. It has been part of my life for as you can see 35 years. It is costly to produce and I have subsidised it for many years. My Accountant has asked me if my aim to make a profit! It would be nice but it is a labour of love!
Finally, there is a rose with a suitable name for a gift for every occasion. What nicer than a Gift of a Rose!
