Millbrook Garden Centre in Gravesend kicked off its annual Rose Festival last week.

The garden centre hosts the festival from Thursday, June 16 for two weeks until June 30. It showcases the beauty of the rose, with amazing floral displays. There will be up to 300 different varieties of rose on sale and experts readily on hand to give advice for successful rose planting.

The Rose of 2016, Sunny Sky, will also be available to view and purchase.

Throughout the festival there will be rose-related offers, exclusively for Millbrook family members. These include 10 per cent off all David Austin roses and three for ?20 on selected bush roses.

Kate Haines, plant manager of Millbrook Garden Centre, said: ?We?re really looking forward to hosting the Rose Festival again.

?Roses are one of the most popular categories of plant that we sell at Millbrook. It’s one that repeatedly wins the accolade ?Britain?s favourite flower?.

?We love roses for their unparalleled flower power. Lots will start flowering now and still be in flower in late autumn.

?The Rose Festival is our chance to inspire people with some stunning displays and to share our expert knowledge.?

In celebration of this upcoming event, Millbrook recently held a Blooming Beautiful Rose Photo competition, inviting its customers to share their best rose photos.

A selection of these photos are on display to view in the centre during the festival, including the winning photo, a stunning white abstract rose submitted by Anna Lloyd.

Her prize was a beautiful rose-themed hamper, with an abundance of rose products and tools to enjoy in her garden, plus a delicious High Tea for Two in the centre?s greencaf?.
