Doctor Rose is an anonymous author who lives in a remote cottage in Mid Wales.

One of the several wonders of the world and certainly the best kept secret of our time, with only an email address to contact him.

Nobody knows his exact location, only that he spends the majority of his time advising fellow rose growers on how to improve and overcome problems they may be having.

With his sharp and witty responses, no question will go unanswered.



Are there any varieties of Rose that can be considered 'Welsh'?
