Gardening may not be what David Beckham is known for (yet at least), his success as a budding rose gardener may well grow into a new career prospect for him. He's definitely off to a strong start including the Queen of Sweden rose in his garden line up. 

Not only known for striking good looks and beautiful scent, this fine specimen will improve season after season. And the rose isn't bad either.
