EDP Norfolk - - Norfolk Gardens -

Peter Beales grew his world­wide rep­u­ta­tion as a clas­sic rose ex­pert from a small site at Swarde­ston in 1968, later mov­ing to At­tle­bor­ough.

His love of old roses took him around the world and as his knowl­edge ex­panded so did his busi­ness. He was a pro­lific win­ner at the Chelsea Flower Show, win­ning 19 gold medals among other top hor­ti­cul­tural awards. He died in Jan­uary, 2013, aged 76.
