Recorded lecture by Gordon D. Rowley on the history of garden roses

The recording was designed to be played whilst slides illustrating the lecture were viewed. For this reason, the right hand channel contains a bleep which indicates when a new slide should be shown. The access copy of this recording does not include the bleeps. For access to the recording which includes the bleeps, contact the Norfolk Record Office.

The following information relates to the Rowley lecture. In 1945, the Agricultural Improvement Council established national collections of shrubs, roses and bulbs. The aim was to make the collections as complete as possible. The John Innes Horticultural Institution was selected as the centre for roses. The National Rose Species Collection was assembled at the John Innes Horticultural Institution in Merton, Surrey, shortly before the move to Bayfordbury in Hertfordshire in 1949.
