Visitor smelling a rose at Cliveden, Buckinghamshire

Cliveden is blooming again after the Rose Garden’s restoration. In 1959, Geoffrey Jellicoe created a dynamic yet secretive rose garden for the third Viscount Lord Astor. Unfortunately, the garden suffered from ‘rose disease’ and was replaced with herbaceous planting in 2002.

Now Jellicoe’s original arches and abstract-shaped beds have been restored and reinstated with a planting design based on Lord Astor’s aspiration to create a captivating garden.
 
800 roses in vibrant reds, oranges and yellows have been selected to fill the garden with scent and colour from late June through to September.
