A pergola at King’s Posted on July 29, 2013

This is the rose pergola we are putting up in the Fellows Garden of King’s College, Cambridge in memory of my father, Guy, who went up to to King’s as an undergraduate one hundred years ago, survived four years at the Front, and returned in 1919 to finish his law degree.

In the autumn we will be planting the roses. If you have good experiences of varieties for pergolas, (the soil is light, the climate dry) do please share them.
