The Tree Aid ‘Little Angel' is a white or near white floribunda rose with semi-double flowers that will continue to bloom throughout the summer. There is £1 from every sale donated by Fryer’s Roses and
Blue Diamond to Tree Aid, who work with some of the poorest communities in Africa.
Through planting trees in African drylands, Tree Aid grows vital food and helps people to earn an
income and improves the environment. Blue Diamond have been supporting Tree Aid for more than a year and have already helped plant more than 3,000 trees in the drylands of Africa.

Blue Diamond Group managing director Alan Roper said: "Blue Diamond is delighted to be able to
support Tree Aid. We are already a partner to this charity and as such donate money from trees sold in Blue Diamond garden centres to Tree Aid.
"For every £1 we donate, a tree is planted in Africa. By naming, promoting and selling the new "Little Angel" rose on behalf of Tree Aid, we are able to support Tree Aid to a greater degree. This in turn will mean more trees can be planted and ultimately more families can then provide for themselves ".

Bare root Little Angel is £12 (excluding delivery). Potted roses are £17.99 per rose (excluding delivery).
Fryer’s Roses is also launching a new rose at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show named after  the charity Hope for Justice.
The roses will be available from Blue Diamond garden centres at £17.99 from April 2018.
