As GardenSIte's plant specialist I always keenly anticipate the HTA National Plant Show. This is my chance to visit nurseries, find out what's trending in the horticultural world and source new stock, all from under one roof.
A new rose will be unveiled at this week's HTA National Plant Show, Nathan James Dodd reports that it's the result of a fund raising partnership between Nursery Fresh Plants and Breakthrough Breast Cancer, with initial help from GardenSite.
Breakthrough Breast Cancer is a charity that GardenSite has supported over many years. It helped fund ground-breaking research, hoping to eliminate all breast cancer deaths by 2050.
Nursery Fresh Plants is one of the UK's leading nurseries, supplying garden centres including our own in Sutton Coldfield, with roses and wide range of other plants.
GardenSite is particularly pleased to have brought the nursery and charity together at the start of the process, and has had a preview of the beautiful new rose bloom.
Named 'Time To Live' it's no surprise that pink has been chosen, the floribunda rose is also very fragrant, blooming profusely and with great disease resistance.
This gorgeous new rose will be launched by Nicki Chapman at the trade show that takes place at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry on 23 & 24 June.
Nursery Fresh will be taking orders from their stand for delivery in the autumn, and £1 from the sale of every plant will go to 'Breast Cancer Now', the new charity formed by Breakthough Breast Cancer and the Breast Cancer Campaign, with the Prince of Wales as Patron. The Time To Live rose is available to order on GardenSite for immediate delivery.
