The London Literary Gazette p. 154 (Mar 10, 1827)

This is a good season of the year for planting roses: the singularity and beauty of this shrub, when grown as a standard, is beginning to be generally known, though they are not so common in our suburban and cottage gardens as we hope and have no doubt they will be in a few years. Immense quantities have been imported this season from France, and in consequence they were never before so cheap. Some of the finer varieties of Moss, Bengal, and Provins, which last year cost one or two guineas each, may now be purchased for 3s. or a crown. We would recommend our country readers, and especially the female part of them who are fond of gardening, to procure a number of briar stocks from the hedges and copses in their neighbourhood, of different heights, from one to six feet, and amuse themselves grafting or budding them with the finer sorts of French roses. The following roses no garden out to be without:—

Smallest size.—Renoncule pourpre, Centfeuilles anémone.

Second size.—Bengale atropourpre, Bengale thé à fleur rouge, Mousseuse panachée, Duchesse d'Angouleme, Folie Bonaparte.

Third size.—Bengale Catherine II., Incomparable de Luxembourg, Bengale thé jaune, Mouseuse blanche nouvelle, Mousseuse cramoisée, Rose du Roi, Centfeuille Vilmorin, Rose Lee, or Palmyre.

Largest size.—Bengale Pivoine, Centfeuilles nouvelle de Luxembourg, Globe céleste, Portlandica grandiflora, Toison d'Or.

Climbing Roses.—Moschata, Multiflora, Noisette Champagna, Grevillii, Boursaultii, and Russelliana.

Scotch Roses.—Snowball, Fairy, Lurid purple, Unique, Perpetual, Lady Liston.

A more extensive selection of roses, with directions, illustrated by engravings, for grafting and budding them, will be found in the Gardener's Magazine for March.
