Parkside Nursery donated a range of its Roses to a couple from Upton, Chester who have given up vast amounts of their time to help others.
On Mon. 19th June 2017 after collecting a wide selection of Roses from the Knutsford nursery Mark headed west through Cheshire to deliver over 40 roses to Alan Titchmarsh's team from ITV Love Your Home & Garden.
Our range of Roses included Climbers, Floribunda's, Shrub & Hybrid Tea as well as a selection of Patio all in a selection of colours. They were included within the planting design in the garden of Richard and Ann, at their Chester home.
Richard and Ann are quite a remarkable couple who have given up vast amounts of their time over the years to helping others. Richard has been a volunteer with the Samaritans for 42 years and now volunteers at Samaritans’ Chester where he is also Branch Prison Support Officer and has been awarded the British Empire Medal for his services to the Samaritans.
Over the last 10 years Richard & Ann have also fostered more than 20 children. They are also volunteers and puppy trainers for Guide Dogs for the Blind. We were delighted to support the Home & Garden team and donate a range of roses to a couple who have contributed so much themselves.
The complete transformation was broadcast on ITV on 13th September 2017. Click on the Love Your Home & Garden banner above, or here, for more details of episode 3.
