16th June - 22nd July 2018
Smell the roses at the biggest Rose Festival in the South West
Once again it's time to enjoy five weeks celebrating England’s iconic flower at the Royal Horticultural Society’s beautiful garden’s at Rosemoor in Torrington, North Devon.
Top highlights from the festival include guided tours, expert advice from RHS specialist horticulturists, a florally themed craft market, a Rose Trail and much, much more.
Rosemoor boasts the largest rose gardens in the South West - filled with an exciting array of colours and smells as over 2000 rose plants, across over 200 different varieties, bloom into life.
From cottage garden climbers to bright and beautiful container varieties, there will be a rose to inspire and suit all gardens.
An exciting and brand new element for 2018 will be a display that celebrates the centenary of the end of the First World War - a memory of those who lost their lives.
Rosemoor has planted a group of Rosa Pax, meaning 'peace' in Latin. It's a hybrid musk rose and was developed by rose breeder Joseph Pemberton in 1918 to commemorate the end of WW1.
On the 30th June, those in the armed forces will be able to enter the gardens for free.
