For over three years I have been asking this question at garden shows and garden centres. Why can I not buy a Rosa Gallica officianalis, The rose of Lancaster, the official Lancashire rose IN LANCASHIRE?
Oh! yes. I can send away for it to a specialist grower but is it not obscene for the garden centres in Lancashire to have none in stock or even order it for me? I think so.
What about the white rose of Yorkshire? Is that the same for Yorkshire folk?
I am in Blackpool.
