ROSE MAGIC IN LUXEMBOURG
Roses and rose gardens are one of the Grand Duchy’s best kept secrets but it was not always so. For over a hundred years until World War Two Luxembourg rose growers bred over 400 varieties and shipped millions of the finest roses around the world. Renewed interest amongst rose lovers has led to a revival of this heritage. Old varieties have been rediscovered and new gardens created.
This book introduces you to the fascinating story of Luxembourg roses. Author Heidi Howcroft has worked with internationally renowned Luxembourg garden photographer Marianne Majerus to document this important contribution to the horticultural world. Learn how rose enthusiasts are protecting and promoting roses and immerse yourself in the over 200 fantastic images by the multi-award-winning photographer. Be inspired by public rose gardens, contemporary rose collections and twelve charming private gardens, and bring the world of Luxembourg roses into your garden.
