This month we feature a special rose that is great to give as a gift as well as to grow in your own garden.
‘Truly Special’ was presented by rose breeder Rob Somerfield to his parents on the occasion of his parents 60th wedding anniversary. The blooms have an old fashioned form and are rose pink with a slight warm glow to the centre of the blooms. A strong scent adds to the appeal of this variety. A small growing rose to 80cam high, it is a compact healthy grower that will suit any garden large or small.
