Best of the bunch
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.
