Opening details

Open dawn to dusk everyday from end June to end of September.
We are always happy to open our field to visitors (see map) for location which is opposite to our office and signposted accordingly. Don’t come too early as the roses you see are maiden plants and bloom later than those in your garden. Generally the rose field opens very late June to end of September. Usually, depending on weather conditions the blooms are at their peak during the first three weeks of July. The rose field is not normally staffed. If you require personal assistance do check our business hours and call at our office for help.
