At the current time of writing (April 2010) we have won 18 RHS Gold Medals at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show and over 100 more at other flower shows. We have also been fortunate in recent years to have been awarded The Lawrence Medal for the best exhibit at any RHS show. We have also been awarded the Presidents award for his chosen best exhibit at Chelsea Flower Show and Peter Beales has also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Garden Media Guild for his writing on and devotion to the world of roses.
We hybridise and create our own style of Classic Rose as well as hold the largest collection of commercially available roses in the UK. We grow and sell over 1200 varieties with 300 being unique to us in this country. Each year we introduce a number of new and exciting roses at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and sometimes the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.
Peter Beales Roses Ltd was first formed in 1972 by Peter Beales. We have our famous rose gardens, garden centre and bistro in the market town of Attleborough in Norfolk with 3 acres being devoted to a maintained rose garden filled with roses of all families and sizes from the smallest bush rose up to the largest rambler.
The gardens are set out in a room like design and include a multitude of features from a koi carp pond through to wood sculptures dotted around the gardens; all under planted with the best companion plants chosen by our experts. We believe that roses should be grown with other companion plants and not in bare 1950's military like rows!
The company is directed by Peter Beales (Managing Director), Amanda Beales (Marketing Director) and Richard Beales (Production Director) from the offices in Attleborough.
We sell bare root roses throughout the winter months when the roses are dormant and can be transported and handled in bare root form and container roses throughout the summer months when the roses are growing and flowering and when the roots should not be touched. We sell other shrubs, climbers and perennials throughout the year in various forms: all our companion plants on this website are carefully selected to be ideal partners to roses.
