Exclusive roses launch at Haskins for summer festival

The rose festival at Haskins is the perfect way to mark the start – and scent – of summer. It kicks off next Thursday and runs until July 25. The exclusive range Simply Stunning (pictured above) is bound to be sold out quickly so you may want to mark the opening weekend on your calendar. It features a whopping 120 roses so is bound to be the perfect centrepiece for your summer border. Also on limited availability is the national rose of the year, Starlight Symphony. The garden centre has 200 breeds in total.

In addition to these exclusive ranges, Haskins will be offering more than 200 types of roses, including Peter Beales Roses and David Austin Roses. The new Timeless Roses range will also be available from Haskins, ideal for cut flower and flower arranging.

Lisa Looker, brand director at Haskins Garden Centres, said: “The rose is such a versatile flower and means so many different things to people. The rose has an interesting and rich history, and according to fossil evidence could be more than 30 million years old.

“Suiting any type of garden, the rose can be grown in vast amount of colours and varieties. They remain one of the most popular flowers today because so long as they have a deep soil and lots of food, they are relatively easy to grow. Many types are also wonderfully scented, making them a perfect addition to any garden or balcony garden.”

Haskins is located in Ferndown in Dorset, West End in Southampton and Roundstone and Snowhill in West Sussex.
