Barnsdale Gardens donate to ‘Greenfingers’ and ‘Garden Re-Leaf

Barnsdale Gardens are proud to support Greenfingers this Garden Re-Leaf Day with a 10% donation from each sale of the Rose ‘Geoff Hamilton’.

The ‘Geoff Hamilton’ holds delicate pink flowers on stiff stems and has the shape and scent of a traditional English rose, but with the modern benefit of disease resistance.

Named by David Austin in memory of ‘the peoples gardener’, the rose has a warm soft pink colour and are cupped at first, later becoming rosette-shaped, the outer ring of petals fading to white, providing a most attractive effect. There is an Old Rose fragrance with a hint of apple.

As it is the 40th Anniversary of Barnsdale Gardens this year, the rose has been selling like hot cakes!  But never fear, there will be more available from May.

The Greenfingers Charity is a national charity dedicated to supporting children who spend time in hospices around the UK. Their aim is to create inspiring gardens for them and their families to relax in and benefit from.

Linda Petrons from Greenfingers stated “We are absolutely thrilled that this stunning rose will support our work.  As Geoff was involved with Greenfingers right from the early days, it’s a wonderful tribute to a special friend.”

Rosa ‘Geoff Hamilton’ will be available again from the online Barnsdale Gardens store from the first week of May.

There’s plenty to see and do all year round at Barnsdale Gardens!
