Charles Quest-Ritson’s lecture includes advice on roses that flourish in a Mediterranean climate, rose nurseries, and facts on choosing and looking after roses.  Charles is the author of The English Garden Abroad and he and his wife Brigid produced the RHS’s Encyclopedia of Roses. He has been a director of the National Rose Society and an advisor to the Hanbury Botanic Garden at La Mortola.

Mediterranean Plants and Gardens (MPG), a not-for-profit association, is grateful to Charles for giving this fascinating talk at the Chelsea Physic Garden. Questions via “contact us” page on MPG’s website
