Coolings Rose Festival

Coolings Rose Festival

A Summer Celebration of English Roses

This Summer, we are delighted to be running our Rose Festival again, celebrating all the wonderful things about England’s favourite flower! We will be sharing our favourite roses, along with some handy hints and tips to help you get the best out of your roses.

See our rose planting guides below, where you will be able to find plenty of advice about roses. From how to plant them, to the best plants to grow alongside them.

Did you know, our roses are grown on-site at Coolings Wych Cross Garden Centre. We are very proud of the Wych Cross rose heritage and this year has been the first one in a while where we have been able to grow roses again to supply all four of our centres. We stock over 400 varieties to suit every occasion and setting so be sure to visit us in-store, or take a look online and take advantage of our excellent rose selection.

Rose Festival ends 31st July 2021.

Throughout June, Coolings Family members can enjoy £5 off when purchasing any 2 roses in-store or online
