What’s your favourite flower? <?xml:namespace prefix = "o" />

Roses are probably up there as number one favourite flower but for a lot of places in Australia, they’re tricky to grow.

But, if you’ve developed the knack for growing roses, and you could grow a few more, why not create a special rose garden.


There’s plenty of different ideas for creating rose gardens and this was just one of them.
