Everything’s Coming up Roses at Ely Cathedral

posted in: Events, News, Organisations | 0

The 2018 Flower Festival is the perfect opportunity to introduce the new Ely Cathedral rose. 

The rose has been produced by award winning East Anglian rose growers, Peter Beales, recognised worldwide for the preservation of old fashioned, historic and rare roses. As a specialist propagator of new blooms, they have won many prestigious awards including 24 Gold medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which is where the Ely Cathedral rose was officially unveiled by television personality and celebrity garden designer, Diarmuid Gavin.

This subtly scented, repeat flowering shrub plant produces a wonderful multi-headed display of deep red buds open to reveal double, ruffled blooms which was much admired by HRH Prince Charles at the Sandringham Flower Show last year, when he was inspecting a few of the new unnamed new species.
A limited number of roses will be on sale at the Flower Festival but we strongly advise ordering in advance.
