"This is the life story of New Zealand's most famous rosarian. Now retired after 50 years in the business, Trevor Griffiths looks back on his life and his consuming passion for cultivating old roses. The author of many rose books, including the definitive "Glorious Old Roses", Trevor Griffiths has travelled the world in search of perfect rose strains to add to his collection. The book also tells of the author's childhood years and education, and the influences that set him on the road to cultivating roses. A remarkable public garden, The Trevor Griffiths Garden, disigned by Sir Miles Warren, has been constructed in Timaru as a tribute to Trevor Griffiths, whose collection of genuine old roses was once the third largest in the world. It is from this collection, plus a further 600 modern roses from English breeder David Austin, that the garden of 1200 roses has evolved."
