Woodland Rose Garden

vickysgardenDecember 3, 2012

A couple years ago I came across a wonderful blog with many, many beautiful photos of roses which the author was growing in a partially shaded setting. There was also information given about the individual roses he was growing. My recollection is that it was called "woodland rose garden", or something similar, but I have searched and searched recently and cannot find it!

Does anyone know the correct name of this website, or what happened to it? If it still exists, it would be nice to visit it again.

Was that Phillip in Alabama? Gorgeous garden, gorgeous photos.

No. That is Kent Krugh -- an Ohio photographer, who has photographed roses in many parts of the country.

mmmm, a shame he is not continuing - it was a really rather good blog which would have been handy for my new shady situation. Never mind, there is always George Schenk - a charity shop find with a nice anecdotal style.
I typed woodland roses in Peter Beales site and came up with a neat list of 141 (quite a few of which I already have). While there were the obvious contenders (many species and sweet briars), there were also some surprising (to me) additions such as Nastarana, R.Dupontii and the Fruhling series.

Hoovb: Thanks, I checked out your link, and that is not the one I remember. I wish now I had written down the website name! It was really a great resource and so beautiful to look at! Does anyone else remember this site or know what's happened to it?

Here's a link to Kent Krugh's 'A Woodland Rose Garden' on Wayback machine. I am not sure if it is all there. I found it on an old gardenweb thread. It seems impossible to find unless you have the link. It doesn't turn up if you just search the wayback machine site.

Actually there's a way to access it. There's an internet archive: waybackmachine.org. Some sites they have a more complete cache of than others. I did a search and they have it: http://replay.waybackmachine.org/20090525195623/http://woodlandrosegarden.com/
It seems like most of the photo galleries are broken, but the links to the journals are still up and running.

I really liked Kent Krugh's site too and was sad when it disappeared. I'd seen it through the Wayback Machine link that someone kindly posted awhile ago but a lot of the photos have been removed, sadly.

I emailed him once after that to tell him how much I enjoyed his site and missed it; he said he had gotten really interested in photography and was spending his time there rather than on roses.
