Rose Workshop with Renowned Rosarian Michael Marriott

March 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$15
Michael Marriott, one of the world’s leading rosarians, presents a rose growing workshop including history on some of Morven’s roses.

Join us for an afternoon with renowned rosarian and garden designer Michael Marriott as he presents a special workshop just for Morven.

This virtual program – live from the UK – will include highlights and history of some of Morven’s roses as well as garden design techniques and Mr. Marriott’s common sense approach to growing and caring for roses.

Personal Zoom link will be emailed the day of this event. A recording of this lecture will be sent to all registrants following the event.

Michael Marriott was an integral part of David Austin Roses for 35 years and at the firm’s headquarters in Albrighton where he was the font of knowledge for all matters relating to roses. Michael has played an important part in the development and popularization of English Roses and therefore has intimate knowledge of all of the 200 plus English Roses bred and introduced by David Austin Roses.

As a garden designer, he is known for dense romantic beds whether purely roses or mixed in with perennials. He has designed many rose gardens and borders around the world of varying sizes, both public and private. Public gardens include the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, Queen Mary’s Rose Garden in Regent’s Park, Hampton Court Palace, Wynyard Hall, Trentham Gardens and the David Austin garden near Osaka in Japan. His private clients are primarily in the United Kingdom, the United States and Europe, but he has also worked on gardens in New Zealand, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Russia and even Bhutan.
