Time To Live Rose At The Chelsea Flower Show

Since its launch, the 'Time To Live' rose has proved a great success raising funds for the Breast Cancer Now charity. Nathan James Dodd is now pleased to report that it featured in a prize winning garden at this year's Chelsea Flower Show.

Bred after GardenSite had introduced Breast Cancer Now to Nursery Fresh Flowers, the Time To Live rose was launched in 2015 with the aim of raising funds for the charity.

Since then it has proved highly popular and has now been highlighted as part of a show garden that won Silver-Gilt at the Chelsea Flower Show this year.

This is great news, as the The Sun Flower Square was sponsored by a prestigious trio - the daily newspaper from which the garden takes its name and both the Garden Centre Association and Horticultural Trades Association.

As the prize category was for inspiring front gardens with the emphasis on roses, this was a fabulous way of showcasing the lovely pink rose that blooms profusely and has great disease resistance. You can order it from your local garden centre or buy online from GardenSite.

£1 from each purchase will go to Breast Cancer Now (Patron HRH Prince of Wales).
