David Austin 450X300

David Austin has made it his life’s mission to breed essentially beautiful roses. By crossing Old Fashioned Roses with Modern Hybrid Teas & Floribundas he has been able to capture the charm & intense fragrance of the old with the colours, disease resistance & repeat flowering qualities of the modern, resulting in a triumphant hybridization that has taken the gardening world by storm.

David Austin is now an internationally renowned name & highly respected brand, with 23 gold medals awarded at RHS Chelsea Flower Show alone. Both his son & grandson have joined the family run nursery & together they continue to breed & develop award-winning varieties to meet our globally insatiable desire for the perfect English Rose.

The David Austin range at Dobbies:

English Roses are hard to beat for sheer exuberance of flower, backed up with outstanding health, reliability & vigour. Their versatility makes them ideal garden pants for the mixed border or large containers on the terrace. Many varieties are suitable for training on walls as climbing plants or planted to create floriferous garden hedges.
