About David Austin Roses
Breeding exquisite english roses since 1961
It has been more than 60 years since David Austin Snr first introduced English Roses to the world, and more than 20 years since our debut in the US. Our roses are still grown on our family farm in Shropshire, UK, carefully creating wonderful new varieties for the world to enjoy.
Still made by Hand
Today, most of our growing is still carried out by hand, just as it was at the very beginning. Every plant that we sell has been hand-budded, a traditional and intricate skill carried out by our experts millions of times each year.
A lifetime of breeding Excellence
In the early 1950s David Austin set out to create a more beautiful rose. Sixty years on, this simple objective remains. Rose breeding is often described as being as much an art as a science.
All David Austin roses have a collective style and reflect one man’s vision. All have beautiful blooms and in most cases wonderful fragrance held on graceful attractive shrubs. A garden of these outstanding roses is hard to beat for sheer exuberance of flower and fragrance.
