Luxembourg Land of Roses

Yesterday’s roses inspiring today’s gardens

Heidi Howcroft & Marianne Majerus

Today the focus is on English roses but at the end of the 19th century rose lovers and nurseries from Russia to Argentina, the USA to China and all points in between looked to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg for inspiration. This book explores this fascinating history and how today’s rose enthusiasts have rediscovered their heritage, unearthed old roses and enriched their surroundings. The results are astonishing and show Luxembourg in a new light. Eight public and 12 private rose gardens are featured in this 176-page book illustrated by Marianne Majerus’ masterful photographs. Be surprised and inspired by what Luxembourg has to offer gardeners around the world. And once we can travel again, plan a journey to see these wonderful gardens for yourself.
