A Suffolk garden centre firm is inviting people to let their imagination bloom by naming a new rose variety.

The rose will be launched in July as part of Notcutts Garden Centre’s 120th anniversary celebrations.

The plant has been bred and tested over the past six years by leading UK rose breeders, Harkness Roses.

Caroline Notcutt, company vice-chairman and judge, said: “The competition is a great opportunity to express your creativity – perhaps looking at the rose’s vivid colour, our 120-year history, or whatever inspires your imagination.”

The winner will receive a prime specimen of the rose, £120 in Notcutts vouchers, afternoon tea for two at their nearest garden centre, a bottle of rosé champagne and a pair of Felco No.2 secateurs.

Closing date is May 21, with the rose on sale later this summer in Woodbridge.

Visit the store or notcutts.co.uk to suggest a name.
