One hundred garden roses have been gifted to Brooksby Melton College (BMC) to plant in their ornamental garden.

The roses, donated by Leicestershire-based family business Coles Nurseries, will be planted in the New Year and give students the perfect opportunity to learn how to care for them.

Paul Greene, horticulture lecturer at BMC, said: “We’re delighted to have received this generous gift from Coles.

“The roses will serve to enhance certain areas of the Brooksby estate, and will give our students the opportunity to work with some of the newer examples.

“The association between BMC and Coles is well established. For many years, Geoff Coles was on the board of governors at the college. Over the years, many of the staff who now work at Coles have studied at BMC.”
