Paul Zimmerman learned about roses and rose horticulture from Dr. Thomas Cairns, past President of both the American Rose Society and World Federation of Rose Societies, and was introduced to Old Garden Roses by Steve Jones, a former President of The American Rose Society.
Paul then developed a love for roses through a continuing deep friendship with Bob Edberg of Limberlost Roses in California where he met Mike Lowe of Lowe’s Roses.
From there, he formed and ran Ashdown Roses Ltd, a rose nursery offering A World of Garden Roses which he closed in 2009 order to focus on rose growing education.
Paul writes, teaches, hosts, consults about and judges roses throughout North America, France and The Netherlands.
