Gardeners' Gold Rose

Gardeners' Gold Rose

In 2017, the brand new Rose 'Gardeners' Gold' was launched by Roses UK and Harkness Roses at BBC Gardeners' World Live.

This climbing rose produces a profusion of rich golden yellow flowers with a light fruity scent. Suitable for many uses in the garden, growing on walls, posts, trellis, arches or pergolas. The mid-green foliage shows excellent disease resistance, so this rose is ideal for the organic gardener — not only are fungicides not needed, but the bees are attracted to it.
 
The rose is bred by Harkness Roses, Hitchin from a breeding line that is based on producing easy to grow healthy roses. During the breeding and testing period of 7 years prior to introduction 'Gardeners’ Gold' has never been treated with any fungicide, so we can be sure that this excellent climber will grow without difficulty in gardens across the country.

Mid-June — what better time to appreciate the colour and fragrance of roses and to add some new favourites to your garden. Floribundas, Hybrid Teas, Climbers and Ramblers, Patio, Groundcover, there is a rose for every situation.

If you didn't manage to get your hands on this rose at the 2017 Show, make your way to the Harkness website for details!and to get your hands on a little piece of gardening history!
