Melville Nurseries in Carmel is one of WA’s largest rose specialists and its picturesque location is also home to the inaugural “Melville’s Festival of Roses”.

The Festival has been on today and all day Sunday the 15th of November, with all proceeds going to the McGrath Foundation.
   
The ‘Jane McGrath’ rose is just one of the new releases we’ll see over the weekend and you’ll also see some of the best gardening products on the market and how to use them.  There will be food, a raffle, activities for children, music and lots of colourful plants and products for sale.  It’ll also be the official opening of the new rose garden, ‘Le Jardin de Rose’.

Designed by our own resident Horticulturalist, Colin Barlow, the garden is intended to cater for weddings, functions and special events, Le Jardin de Rose is a French style rose garden that consists of several ‘rooms’ with rose and wisteria covered pergolas, statuary, parterre, water features and a potager or ornamental vegetable garden. 

Colin Barlow will be at the show and ’Better Homes and Gardens’’ Graham Ross will also be presenting some talks and demonstrations as part of the Festival.
   
Entry is by gold coin donation which will be helping the McGrath Foundation raise awareness of Breast Cancer.  So, make a day of it tomorrow and get up to “Melville’s Festival of Roses” from 9.30 till 4pm.
