Introduction to the 37th Edition of Find That Rose website.
The original domain for this site was www.findthatrose.net. Using www.findthatrose.co.uk is better as it identifies where this site is based.
This website is based on the variety and nursery section of the Annual produced book Find That Rose. Yes the book is 37 years old and the original “ U.K plant finding book” Yes this website concentrates on essential part of the book, how to find a particular variety supplied in the United Kingdom. The book is given an Annual update to reflect a particular period of production and sales. In this case Autumn 2019 to Summer 2020. .
Every effort is made to be as accurate as possible and is produced with the complete support of those growers and outlets featured. Other rose finding sites in many cases just indicate the name of a variety and little else. Many varieties cease to be produced each season as new varieties take their place. Some sites give names of varieties no longer in production and many are not U.K. based.
The book itself, which has other interesting bits and pieces and hints can be purchased at a very modest price see the details on the site. This site is free to use but the sales of the book itself is the main source to help towards the costs which are very difficult to meet. So if you have found help here then purchasing the book would be greatly appreciated.
