Some ideas for your garden
For 2016 we are offering a greatly increased range of 'Roselilies', in total some 30 varieties. They range from the first two original varieties, Fabiola and Belonica, to new varieties that have only just been released. Colours range from pure white, shades of pink plus a few red ones, all of which are scented. Being orientals they do need an acidic soil, hence most customers grow them in containers, filled with ericaceous compost. A great way to try them is to order one of our mixes.
The 'Chelsea Plant of the Year Competition' was first contested in 2010, since then it has been run every year. Exhibitor's in the floral marquee can enter as many new plants as they wish, but only the top twenty are selected to go forward for the award. In 2010 we had planned to enter Lily Allen, but we missed the deadline !
For 2012 we decided to only enter two varieties : Bethan Evans and Cream Tea, both were voted into the top twenty.
Our contestant for the 2014 competition : Jennifer Evans

Sarah received the award from The Queen on the Monday afternoon, a great honor. Here at H W Hyde & Son we take great pride in being the UK's top specialist Lily growers. Every year we run trials of the very newest varieties of both Lilies and Tulips, only the very best of these get included in our catalogue, tulip bulbs and martagon lily bulbs are supplied in the Autumn. Most other varieties of lilies are supplied in the Spring
During the year we exhibit at the top flower shows in the UK and our displays are made from flowers grown at our own nursery. So far we have a perfect record at the World famous 'Chelsea Flower Show', winning gold every time.
Some unnamed varieties of Roselily will soon be posted online.
RoseLily's have a pleasant perfume and are easy to grow in either Ericaceous compost or acidic soils.
Exhibit number eleven at Chelsea and we have maintained our perfect record of winning Gold Medals. This years display was constructed of five big beds of growing plants.
