It has now been announced that HM Government have advised that as of Wednesday 13th May Garden Centres (not Tea Rooms) in England can re-open on the understanding that it is safe for both staff and customers and that all required social distancing guidelines can be adhered to.
Whilst this is great news for all, it does raise certain concerns based on the layout of our rose nursery and shop, as we only have limited space for entrance, exit and at our check out system.
When it comes to the search for that perfect scent sometimes it’s best to forget the name and follow your nose! Here we have a selection of some of our favourite scented roses. Picked not just for scent but performance and beauty too.
This week in our gardens we have been carrying out a winter clean-up in the borders as the Spring flowers are already coming through and, in some cases, already in bloom.
When it comes to growing and keeping roses at their healthy best, there’s few that can rival the knowledge our own Garden Centre Manager Jack Kitson. Here he gives us a rundown on best practice to keep your plants enjoying a series of blooms throughout the summer.
Over the course of the season we will pot in the region of 25,000 individual roses. These are hand watered, fed and treated 361 days a year so they are in perfect condition.
The benefits of a rose hedge include a long flowering period, the potential for a heady scent, a source of food and shelter for wildlife and depending upon the variety, an impenetrable barrier.
Climbing roses can be grown up houses, over fences, arches and pergolas, even through trees! They grow quickly and it’s essential that you choose the right rose for your location
