This rose reaches its full glory in June when the it erupts into a wonderful display of colour and fills the air with a heady fragrance.


Rosa 'Graham Thomas' is one of the many cultivars of English roses that can be planted in a formal style with a range of colours from deep, velvety red through oranges and yellows to pale creams and crisp, clear whites.



June 21 is the longest day of the year, and the extra light and warmth encourages the garden to put on an exuberant burst of growth. But this extra light and warmth also means weeds will sprout up from seemingly no where. Keep on top of them by hoeing regularly in dry conditions. Herbaceous borders are reaching their early summer peak and the kitchen garden is becoming productive.

We will work with you so you have something that meets your requirements, from the traditional cottage garden to a contemporary city garden.
