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: Conifers
Super-reliable, versatile and easy-going, conifers are a great choice for all styles of garden. Whether it's clipped yew setting off formal herbaceous borders, minimalist needlepoint spears of Italian cypress marching through contemporary gardens, or a cone-bearing pine to provide food and shelter for wildlife, there's a conifer to suit you.
Not all are evergreen, or even have needles. The lovely maidenhair tree, Ginkgo biloba, has curious fan-shaped leaves which turn butter yellow before they fall in autumn. Others display extraordinary colours, like Korean fir with its steely-blue cones. Get to know this amazing family of plants and you could find yourself pleasantly surprised.

Clear those borders
Clear away annual summer bedding, compost and dig over the ground to disturb weeds so they get hit by frosts, it also will help expose some soil borne diseases too to harsh weather and kill them off. ;
