Our Rose Buyer’s Top Rose Picks
Roses are loved the world over for so many different reasons; their beautiful flowers, their fragrance, the vast array of varieties available. Here are our top rose picks for the 2021 rose season:
Lemon n Lime
A multi-award winning rose bred by Rob Somerfield of New Zealand. A great rose for picking, Lemon n Lime produces soft lemon coloured blooms with green tinges, on long stems. The green pigment in the petals help them to last well once picked. The foliage is attractive, with its dark glossy leaves.
Gertrude Jekyll was a British horticulturist, garden designer, craftswoman, photographer, writer and artist. She created over 400 gardens in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States, and wrote over 1,000 articles for magazines. Gertrude Jekyll the rose has twice been voted England’s favourite rose. One of the first English Roses to start flowering, its perfect scrolled buds open to large, bright glowing pink rosette shaped flowers. The strong scent is often described as being the quintessential Old Rose fragrance. Gertrude Jekyll is vigorous and will form a medium sized upright shrub.
Sir Edmund Hillary
Appropriately a climbing rose named after a great New Zealander. The rose itself has beautiful snow white blooms with a cream centre. The blooms are very fragrant and the growth habit is strong and health. Let this beauty climb to lofty heights in your garden.
