History of Peter Beales Roses
Peter Beales Roses are the World Leaders in Classic Roses and have been a well-renowned grower and breeder of roses for over 50 years.
Since 1968, Peter Beales Roses have grown millions of roses, including shrub, climbing, modern hybrid tea and floribunda roses that are now growing all over the world, from small city gardens in London to hundreds of acres in Japan.
Nursery Manager Ian Limmer started working for Peter Beales Roses as a Saturday boy in 1977 and it wasn’t long before Peter Beales saw the potential within Ian, asking him to become part of the show team at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, gaining the experience needed to create an award-winning colour coordinated display.
Ian studied part-time for 3 years at a local Horticultural College. After which, he progressed on to do a three year apprenticeship at the nursery, working alongside Peter and gaining further horticultural experience, whilst at the same time Peter passed on his passion for old fashioned roses.
Over the years Ian has travelled all over the world to visit gardens and to give lectures. Visiting many impressive gardens around Europe and lecturing as far a field as Japan.
Ian also writes articles, leads workshops, demonstrations, garden tours and heads the hybridizing programme at Peter Beales Roses, selecting the best seedlings which will go on to become new releases.
“I feel Peter has passed on some of his passion and skill on a very practical level. Skills and knowledge that you cannot learn at a college. So after 45 years I am beginning to feel that I am getting the hang of it, but nature will always have the upper hand. No matter how knowledgeable I become, I appreciate that there will always be more to learn and that’s what makes it so exciting!” - Ian Limmer, Nursery Manager at Peter Beales Roses
