David Austin is uniquely equipped to write books on roses. As a commercial rose grower, he is in continual contact with gardeners and as a hybridizer he is in touch with agents who sell and propagate his English Roses worldwide - from Japan, Australia and New Zealand to the USA and Canada.

He was awarded the Victoria Medal of Honor by the Royal Horticultural Society in 2003 and the Dean Hole Medal by the Royal National Rose Society.
