Daily Mail suggests using pink roses, pastel blooms and secret spaces for a romantic retreat in your garden.
Romance and gardens have been inextricably linked ever since Medieval squires courted damsels in flowery bowers. With midsummer nearly upon us, this is the perfect time to make our outdoor spaces more romantic. 
There is plenty of good advice for gardeners here when it comes to romancing your garden. 
Roses are the flowers we most associate with lovers. Garden designer Jo Thompson, author of The Gardening Mind newsletter on the publishing website Substack, has written a book out next year called The New Romantic Garden and is giving a talk on the subject at the first Borde Hill Garden Festival next weekend. 
She says: ‘The rose goes hand in hand with the idea of romance, and if you’ve got a sweet smelling rose all the better.’ 
Her favourite roses for adding romance include the rambler Adelaide d’Orléans, as well as scented pink Gertrude Jekyll, blush pink Olivia Rose Austin and the pale apricot-hued Emily Brontë. (Ciar Byrne)
