Good year for the roses at East Preston and Kingston Horticultural Society

A magnificent variety and quality of roses was demonstrated at the Conservative Hall, East Preston, last Saturday, alongside sweet peas, specimen orchids, vases of beautiful early summer flowers, pot grown fuchsias, specimen cactus and succulents.
