What a delightful conversation this was! Susan Lyell Young was a
perennial gardener in Nashville, TN when she rescued a bagged Mr. Lincoln rose
from Kmart. That was three years ago and since then she has fallen in
love with roses and collected more than 250 mostly vintage and antique roses.
She particularly loves the vintage polyanthas and pre-WWII hybrid teas,
noisettes, and hybrid musks. Ms. Young gardens on an urban
city lot of 11/0th an acre and is currently looking for some land in the
country so that she might grow a proper garden. When not tending to the roses
Ms. Young is an avid reader of rose history and culture and we couldn't be
happier to have her as our guest this evening.
Hear her favorite roses as well as some growing tips and insights on growing the worlds' most beloved flower.
