South wall of the house.The Fairy &
Swany, 'ground-cover roses' were planted here. It was certainly planed they would trailed down, but they became climbing roses instead..
'Royal Bassino'- July 1998 - 'Vindkullen', Kordes ground-cover rose but it is rather taller.
It is hard to believe, but when I was young I did not like roses.. I found them steel and vain, boring perfect maybe. That was because I almost never could see a rose or rose bush in nature. I lived in a town of millions and I used to see roses only at florist´s. When I started with Yngves garden (see page Who Am I), I bought three first roses only because it was sale and I paid less than half of price. They were: 'Coral Dawn', 'Flammentanz' and Rosa alba 'Maiden´s Blush'. I had not a clue what kind of roses they were, not even that it WAS something like rose groups and how you treat and look after them. I´ve read only on the package how to plant them and that´s it. And I bought some other roses the same summer - mostly by chance.
A little later I have read some books about roses from the library, and when I saw pictures, I became more and more delighted in roses, specially when I saw first flowering bushes.. mostly in the Gothenburg Rosarium. I wanted to buy many of them and I learned much about roses, their attributes, what they need and how you grow them. So my adventure with roses started.. and by now there were 98 sorts of roses in the garden.
A little later other roses were bought too. It was 'Flammentanz' (was planted just under the balcony on the south site of the house and it has got some flowers, but it is no pic on it. Later it was moved to 'Rosarium' after it was ready), 'Heidelberg', 'Bonica',
'The Fairy' and 'Swany' - all were planted in the raised beds made of wooden boards around house walls. They were flowering the same year.
'Maiden´s Blush' was planted in the raised bed made of stones but it has no flowers that year. 'Westerland'
and 'Aloha' and later 'Raubritter' were planted in 'Rosarium'. 'Peace', 4 of them, were planted in the 'Buskage'.

ROSES 1997 - 1999
'Coral Dawn' - the first rose I have bought. It was no place to plant it! I put it into the larger pot and, to protect it from wind and frost in the winter, I placed the pot in the "Annex", next door to the greenhouse there it overwintered and has got its first flowers.

Rosa mulligani has not flowered yet, and other roses has been got single flowers from time to time and I have not much opportunity to shot them that time.
I have bought another 'Dr.Eckener' (see this Page down on the right) and planted it in the autumn 1998 in the middle of the lawn, in front of the entrance door. This 'Doctor' is much better than that at the road. I waited two years for the first flower - but it was worth! Flowers are extremely beautiful and fragrance, I made a lot of pics, I hope they are nice! The pictures can be seen on the Page with 'Dr. Eckener'
