In Our Shopping Basket This Week

by Val Reynolds

lady marmalade roseSometimes a plant comes on the market with a unique universal appeal, one many of us would love in our gardens. 

Lady Marmalade, a rose, falls into this category. Soft, sweet scent, beautiful colour, classic flower shape, with modern disease resistance and repeat flowering throughout the summer. What’s not to like! To cap it all it has just received the RHS award of Rose of the Year 2014.

We’re pretty sure it’s going to be a real winner and if you love the look of it as much as we do we really think you should order it straight away!

Here’s a link to the Thompson and Morgan web page giving full details

Just so you know, we do not receive any kind of remuneration for any of the products we recommend in our magazine. Every product reference is made purely based on what appeals to us and in almost all cases, from our own experience.

We are very attracted to this rose and thought our gardening readers would like to know about it as soon as possible and before supplies sell out!

lady-marmaladeWe notice The Telegraph is selling the same plant in a 4 litre pot for £17.99 whereas Thompson & Morgan are offering a bare root plant for £14.99. Full details for planting and aftercare are on their web page.

This beautiful floribunda rose would be an ideal plant as a gift … Especially to a rose lover – what a lovely surprise!
