New Roses in the Rose Garden

We have been able to purchase 15 new roses for the Rose garden which is near the Visitor Centre, opposite West Lodge.

Yesterday two volunteers David Gaylard and Terry Swain worked with Tom and James to plant and mulch the area.

The list of the 15 types of roses is below, a real shame we don’t know the identity of all the original roses.
