Garden Centre and Nursery in Newent
Roses Country Fayre is a family run garden centre and nursery in Gloucestershire near Newent, Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye, on the Ledbury Road. The business has been run by Chris and Barbara Rose for over 30 years, now assisted by their son James.
Beginning from a table at the top of a drive they have become a complete garden centre with cafe. They specialise in producing a wide range of bedding and basket plants, all grown in their own nursery where over 30 years of growing experience ensures a top quality product - for example the award winning hanging baskets seen on the streets of Ledbury.
Roses Country Fayre also offers a fine assortment of alpine & perennial plants, garden shrubs and an excellent display of roses including David Austin varieties. Last year saw a huge expansion of 'Grow your own' vegetable plants.
There is also a surprisingly wide range of garden tools, furniture, composts, garden pots & ornaments. All these items are very competitively priced and recent reviews have praised the good value on offer.
In response to customer demand Roses Country Fayre recently opened a brand new coffee shop. Cafe Rosie has answered the calls of gardeners requiring a tasty light lunch or a hot drink with a homemade cake in an attractive location. Recent improvements include an expanded children's play area and a 2nd patio area to catch the late afternoon sunshine.
Plant of the Week: Arbutus
This striking small tree’s common name says it all: the strawberry tree is an eyecatching sight when its clusters of huge, fat, scarlet fruit emerge brilliant lipstick-red against the handsome, glossy evergreen foliage looking for all the world like giant strawberries. It takes a year for the delicate froths of ivory-white, bell-like autumn flowers to develop the fruit – so often they’re both on the tree at the same time.
This is a fantastic choice for a smaller garden, making a spreading, shrubby tree to about 8m (24ft). It grows just about anywhere, including in coastal areas, and needs minimal pruning, just the odd snip to keep it in shape.

Protect hosepipes from frost damage and potential leaks next summer by emptying them of water and disconnecting them from the tap before rolling them up to store in the shed. While you're at it, repair any existing leaks with duct tape so they're ready to go next season.
