Old roses, unlike modern varieties, are known for their fragrance. After the two world wars, gardeners and rose growers wanted to develop new techniques to improve the flowering period or the search for new varieties. We then discover hybrid varieties where the colors mix to obtain unique flowers. More than 130 varieties of roses are thus described: size of the plant, characteristics of the flowers, needs of the rose bush ... You will thus master the gestures of the gardeners.
