Attleborough grower to launch two new Norfolk-themed roses

A Norfolk rose grower will be launching two new varieties at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

Peter Beales Roses, of Attleborough, will launch Nelson's Journey after the Norfolk-based charity of the same name, which supports children who have suffered a bereavement.

The rose produces a two tone pink flower.

The deep red Richard Porson rose, named after the Norfolk-born Greek scholar, who lived from 1759 to 1808, will also be launched at the flower show, which starts on July 3.

The idea of commemorating the scholar came from journalist Keith Skipper and gardening expert Alan Gray.
