Grower RV Roger to host rose event

North Yorkshire rose grower RV Roger will show off top roses this month.

RV Roger of Pickering, North Yorkshire will be hosting the second Ryedale Rose Festival on 12-13 July.

The event features the British Isles Rose Society Show, where the top rose growers and exhibitors in the UK will display their blooms.

There will be classes for a range of people including head gardeners from stately homes around Ryedale.

Over two days, the nursery will put on events and demonstrations for visitors and open up the 1.6ha rose field to visitors, where they grow more than 50,000 plants and 600 different varieties each year.

Throughout the year, RVRoger’s rose fields act as a trial ground for members of the Amateur Rose Breeders Society. 

At this year’s festival three new strains will be named in honour of Yorkshire icons. They are Tommie’s Rose, Our Endeavour, and Calendar Girl.
