Preston Park Rose Garden, with over 4 000 rose shrubs and close to 100 species, is a showcase for David Austin, the famous British rose breeder. Richard Stubbs, trade manager at David Austin, and his colleague Liam visited the Rose Garden and met with the volunteers, Cityparks gardeners and Andy Jeavons, garden manager at the Rockery. Mr Stubbs praised the volunteers and the gardeners for their hard work in weeding and pruning all year round, making the Rose Garden one of the best kept in England.
We are hoping to acquire sufficient funds to purchase 500 rose shrubs to replace those which are old and spent, as well as buying a new David Austin fertiliser. Winter mulching is also planned. Please see the volunteer page to help us maintain this beautiful garden.
