Out­look is rosy for show

Wanneroo Times - - News -

WOOD­VALE res­i­dent Stewart Coles hopes to have a flush of roses ready for this week­end’s au­tumn show.

The Rose So­ci­ety of WA trea­surer is op­ti­mistic that na­ture will de­liver favourable con­di­tions ahead of the May 13-14 show in Guild­ford.

“This is just mag­nif­i­cent weather for grow­ing roses at the mo­ment,” he said.

Last Oc­to­ber, un­suit­able weather meant so­ci­ety mem­bers strug­gled to ex­hibit blooms for the Na­tional Rose So­ci­ety Cham­pi­onships at the 2016 Spring Rose Show.

Mr Coles has been grow­ing roses since 1971 and cur­rently has 162 rose bushes, in­clud­ing 20 in large pots.

The show will be at the Guild­ford Town Hall from 1-5pm on Satur­day and 9am-4pm on Sun­day.
