We visited this garden on 2 June and found that the roses were already past their best, with barely a single bloom in peak condition, despite being in the recommended time frame for a visit (and despite the fact that my roses back in England have barely put in an appearance yet!). This was really disappointing for us as we love roses. I guess things happen much earlier in the warmer temperatures in Italy. I can imagine that the garden would be a real delight at the right time (probably early to mid May?). We managed to speak to one of the daughters of the founder of the garden as she was dead-heading some flowers and she manages the garden virtually single-handed, with help from another sister at weekends. Given that there are over 6000 plants there, this is no mean feat! I would no doubt have given this visit 5 stars had we seen it at its best, so be very careful when you visit.
