Our New Rose Patch!

It’s no wonder that roses are the most popular wedding flower – after all they have long been considered a symbol of passion, love and beauty. More than 3000 varieties of rose are grown commercially and we have chosen 21 to plant here at Blakemere. We’ve chosen a mixture of hybrids and old fashioned garden roses so we’re sure there will be something to delight both in looks and scent. All we need to do now is get them to grow and bloom… Watch this space... We’ve planted over 200 roses and here are the varieties in the ground at the moment:
Friendship Rose Friend for Life Rose Love Struck Rose
William Lobb Rose Elaine Paige Rose Trioka Rose
     
Wedding Bell Rose Isabella Rose Mum in a Million Rose
     
Sandra Rose Royal Airforce Rose Ivory Romantica Rose
     
National Trust Rose Silver Wedding Rose Silver Anniversary Rose
     
Braveheart Rose Golden Beauty Rose Fragrant Cloud Rose
