First published in News

SOME of the original Calendar Girls will be appearing at the Ryedale Rose Festival this weekend to receive a new rose named in their honour.

They will be joining some of the country's top horticulturalists for the event hosted by R V Roger of Pickering, following a successful first show last year.

One of the highlights of the weekend will be the British Isles Rose Society Show, where the top rose growers and exhibitors will put on a show of some of the finest blooms in the country.

Over two days, the nursery will put on events and demonstrations for visitors and open up the four acre rose field to visitors, where they grow more than 50,000 plants and 600 different varieties each year.

There will be talks from experts about growing and pruning roses, and how to make best use of them in the garden. Writer and broadcaster Joe Maiden will also make a special guest appearance and take part in a Gardeners' Question Time panel.

Refreshments will be available and there will be live music throughout the day.
