PLANTING NEW ROSES (新しいバラの植え付け)



We've welcomed two varieties of shrub rose in our garden.
Bare root plants were delivered a couple of days ago from David Austin Roses Japan. 

The first one is 'Geoff Hamilton'.
Warm, soft pink rosettes, and light old rose fragrance.
It was named after the late Geoff Hamilton.
(I really like him, as you know, and translated his book
 'The Ornamental Kitchen Garden' in Japanese and you can read a part of the book here)
We planted it between the bench and iron rose arbour.




私たちの庭に新たに2品種の木立性バラをお迎えしました
デビッド・オースチン・ロージス・ジャパンより一昨日、裸苗が届きました

一つは「ジェフ・ハミルトン」です
温かみのあるソフトなピンクのロゼット咲きで、軽いオールドローズの香りがあります
故ジェフ・ハミルトン氏にちなんで名づけられました
(私はご存知のとおり大好きで、彼の著書「オーナメンタル・キッチン・ガーデン」を日本語に翻訳し、
その一部をここで公開しています)
これはベンチとバラのアーバーの間に植えつけました


The other one 'Young Lycidas' was planted in the central flower bed. 
This variety is characterized by magnificent, purple-magenta blooms of classic Old Rose beauty, and lovely fragrance combining tea and old rose. 
Marple desperately wanted to plant it in our garden. 




もう一つは、「ヤング・リシダス」で、中央花壇に植えました
この品種はオールドローズの美しさを持つすばらしい濃い赤紫の花と、
オールドローズとティーの香りを併せ持つのが特徴です
家内がこれを庭にぜひ植えたいと言ったものです

    I have Rose 'Geoff Hamilton' in my garden and it is a strong grower with very few problems. However, the flowers do not like the rain (which is a bit of an issue here in the UK) and they stay in a ball and go soggy. Apart from that, it's a lovely rose.
    Your other rose looks beautiful - I am not surprised that Marple wanted it in your garden.
    I hope they both do well for you.
    Best wishes
