2019 Prettiest Rose Competition

Saturday was the start of The Sun Gardening 'National Rose Festival' and you may have a rose in your garden pretty enough to win. Garden centres across the land are focusing attention on the nations favourite flower and over 30 of them are staging a Prettiest Rose Competition

Cut a stem from your roses, place it in a non-returnable drinks bottle and take to a participating centre, where it will be judged and could receive a first, second, or third prize. Every winner will be photographed and sent in to sungardening.co.uk where later in the week we will judge the Prettiest Rose in Britain and award First, Second and Third prize.

All 21 Blue Diamond Garden Centres for example are taking part and they are offering prizes at each of their centres.

There is more gardening in this weekend's Sun TV Magazine.
