Fryer’s Roses, part of the Blue Diamond Group of Garden Centres, will launch two new roses at this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival, 'Friends' on behalf of Greenfingers Charity and 'Reach for the Stars' on behalf of Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
The Friends Rose
In celebration of the work of Greenfingers Charity and in recognition of the charity’s new 'Friends' initiative to encourage supporters to become Friends of the charity, Fryers’ Roses is thrilled to formally launch a stunning new Friends rose at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival.
Rose 'Friends' is a Hybrid Tea, with beautiful, buttercup-yellow flowers and a mid-strength fragrance. The yellow blooms contrast against dark green, glossy foliage. The Friends rose grows to a height of approximately 90cm.
£1 from each Friends rose sold through Fryer’s Roses online and Blue Diamond Garden Centres, will be donated to Greenfingers Charity.
Rose 'Friends' will be available to buy from Stand FR 756 at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival; at Blue Diamond Garden Centres; online by visiting www.fryersroses.co.uk or by telephoning Fryer’s Roses direct on 01565 755455. (Whilst stocks last.)
Reach for the Stars Rose
Fryers are also launching a 'Reach for the Stars' rose on behalf of Alder Hey Children’s Charity – a beautiful, large flowered, climbing, nostalgic style rose. Its flower colour changes from apricot-yellow to peach when opening. Disease resistant and with a rich, sweet-spice fragrance, this is the perfect rose to train up pillars or pergolas. It can also be grown as a shrub rose to a height of 2-3 metres.
£1 from every Reach for the Stars rose sold through Fryer’s Roses online and the Blue Diamond Group of Garden Centres will be donated to Alder Hey Children’s Charity. Alder Hey is one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospitals, treating over 330,000 patients each year and a world-leading centre for children’s healthcare and research.
Bare root roses can be purchased at a cost of £12 per rose (excluding delivery). Potted roses are £17.99 per rose (excluding delivery). Delivery charges apply. Please see Fryer’s Roses website for details, www.fryersroses.co.uk.
Huge thanks to Fryer's Roses for their generosity and this brilliant initiative to raise money for two fantastic causes.
