David Austin’s Perfect Rose

icBirmingham – Austins think this is the perfect English rose

David Austin is working on putting the scent back into roses sold on the cut flower market:

Bouquets of the unique rose are on sale for prices between £35 and £95, but even at that price they are being snapped up.

"We can sell as many as we can grow," said Susan Rushton. "We have more than a million flowers prepared each year, but they always sell to English rose lovers across the world."
