The rose garden.
The rose garden is located in the front part of the
French garden on both sides of the ornamental parterre,
and covers about one hectare of land. The area closest to
the parterre is planted with English roses that resemble
old garden roses. Modern roses are arranged by colour:
white, pink and red to the west; yellow, orange and
light pastel colours to the east. At the far end of
the garden there are three areas on both sides devoted
to the historical varieties and wild roses which are used
for the hybridization of modern roses.
Records from 1738 mention sixteen roses planted in
pots in the greenhouse of Duke Ernst Johann of Courland.
