Gardening - a wonderful form of relaxation

Gardening is a wonderful form of relaxation and even digging in the dirt and pulling weeds gives many a burst of energy. Some people start growing because they love a particular group of plants and others simply want to beautify the land around their homes.

Whether it is a large garden, or container gardening on a balcony, we would love to share your ideas and inspirations. Please send us a picture of at least 1MB resolution with a few words about what inspired you in your creation.

Each week, a new garden will be featured on the site. Contact E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Rose Pergola in Kew Gardens

Rate this item
(2 votes)

The Rose Pergola at Kew Gardens was built in 1959 as part of a range of ground improvements to mark the gardens’ bicentennial. It runs along the central path of the Order Beds, not far from the old pergola it replaced.

The Pergola is covered with a variety of cultivated climbing roses selected for their profusion and length of flowering. Some of the roses grown on this pergola cannot be grown in the main rose garden. The surrounding walls provide shelter for many plants, including Actinidia kolomikta with its striking pink, red and white spring foliage.
