After a washout last summer and a long cold winter we can only hope for better this year. The May Bank Holiday proved that things can change… we must make the most of our great outdoors while we can. Good gardening for 2013.
We are offering a special discount on these six stunning, repeat flowering roses, while stocks last. They are all highly fragrant and would be sure to make a fabulous addition to any garden. All are £2.00 off our normal retail price. You can order just one or as many as you like.
Peter Beales the great rosarian and aficionado of the old roses sadly passed away on 27th of January. Peter played a huge part in the salvation of many old roses and was a great ambassador for roses of all sorts.His numerous awards and accolades bear testament to his passion for the nations favourite flower.
For me he was a great mentor and will be hugely missed.
Every year rose breeders send their best roses for trials throughout the world.
We are proud to be involved in the judging of these roses to help determine not only those which perform well but have those extra qualities that set them apart from existing varieties.
In the last month we have judged at both St.Albans and at Glasgow. Considering the weather we have endured most roses have provided an excellent display.
Its been a long ,slow, cold and wet start to the year but things are beginning to get going. We have been doing our rain dance after planting for the last few springs and it seems the message has finally got through. Haven’t quite perfected the sun dance yet but this is coming soon. The joys of British weather!
Hopefully by the end of the year it will all have evened out.
