Best of the bunch

Middleton Guardian - - LEISURE -

ROSA ‘eye of the tiger’ EX­PERT rosar­ian Ian Lim­mer at Peter Beales Clas­sic Roses has given his pre­dic­tions on the na­tion’s favourite plant for 2019.

He said that with so many new houses now be­ing built with small or very lim­ited out­door space, he is find­ing that gar­den­ers’ at­ti­tudes are chang­ing as many peo­ple now opt for the smaller, more com­pact roses. These can eas­ily be grown in a con­tainer.

The mod­ern Per­sica range of roses with their nov­elty eye are also very much in de­mand at the mo­ment.

With a wide range of colours to choose from, they are repeat flow­er­ing, very healthy and pro­vide some real im­pact, with one of the most pop­u­lar be­ing the strik­ing Eye of the Tiger.
