At Peter Beales our ambition is to offer a specialist rose and plant centre that sells the widest range of finest quality roses and other plants including shrubs and herbaceous stock. Nestled in the heart of the Peter Beales magnificent two acre display gardens, the plant centre has almost doubled in size over the last two years, with an ever-increasing range of plants.
The Rosarium restaurant can be found within the Peter Beales Garden Centre in Attleborough, Norfolk and provides diners with a peaceful and idyllic place to relax and enjoy a bite to eat with views looking out onto our stunning rose gardens.
When planting roses it is important to follow a few simple steps to ensure that your rose can put down a good strong root system, giving your rose the best start.

Species roses are becoming a more and more popular choice in our gardens, but what exactly is a species rose? They are best described as wild or pure roses of natural origin, with mostly single flowers. Originating from all around the northern hemisphere, many date back to ancient history and are the ancestors that all modern roses originated from. Rose petals and leaves from species roses have even been known to have been found in tombs belonging to ancient Egyptians. Used within garlands, which would have been worn by loved ones, these were then left in the tombs with the bodies.
Whilst many people think of June as being the month for roses, September can actually be almost as productive. This is the time that the majority of repeat flowering varieties will produce their second flush of flowers, bringing your garden back to life with a riot of colour in late summer. Flowers produced later in the season can often be stronger and more vibrant in colour than they were in early summer as well, adding further to the enjoyment of the second flush from repeat flowering roses. This is because flowers produced in June can become slightly bleached by the intensity of the scorching mid-summer sun, whereas come September the days and nights have started to become a little cooler, therefore allowing your roses to produce their flowers with more vivid, truer colours. Although your roses will most likely produce slightly fewer flowers for the second flush than they did early in the season.
Whether you are completely new to roses or have been growing them for years, pruning them can seem like a bit of a daunting task, but it needn’t be.
