Louth Garden Centre hosts David Austin Roses evening

GARDENERS are invited to a free summer event dedicated to David Austin® Roses.

A rose expert with knowledge of David Austin® Roses will be holding a talk at Louth Garden Centre on Wednesday, June 13 from 6pm.

Jane Allen-Chilman, Manager of Louth Garden Centre on Legbourne Road, said: “Our David Austin Expert, Andy Bailey will be talking about how to plant, grow and design with roses for beginners and experts alike. The evening is set to be both fascinating and inspirational.

“The rose event will start at 6pm with prosecco and canapés. Guests will be able to look around the garden centre until the talk begins at 6.30pm. There will be a question and answer session after the talk at 7.15pm.

“People will be able to purchase roses from the garden centre after the question and answer session.”

There will also be a free prize draw during the event with the chance to win a trip to the David Austin Plant Centre at Albrighton including a private tour of the nursery by a member of the David Austin Team and lunch for two.

Other prizes include a signed copy of The English Roses by David CH Austin and a new Josephine Hooker David Austin Rose.

Jane added: “The evening is available for our Gardening Club members. It is free to join the garden centre’s Gardening Club and members receive a reward card and earn points every time they shop at Louth Garden Centre.
