He has travelled the length and breadth of the country giving talks, workshops and judging rose shows. He is even active on social media! Ludwig’s Roses began in 1971 with a small start-up rose nursery on the rose farm outside Pretoria and has since grown to five dedicated rose outlets in Gauteng, the Western and Southern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.
