Peter Beales was one of Britain's foremost growers of classic roses, exporting his blooms around the world and amassing more than 2,000 different species at his nursery in Norfolk. Beales held over a hundred gold awards from horticultural shows, including 19 from the Chelsea Flower Show and the Lawrence Medal for the best exhibit at any Royal Horticultural Society show. He received a lifetime achievement award from the Garden Media Guild, and was appointed MBE in 2005. He died in January 2013, age 69.Review :
