Fryer's Roses History Blog
Fryer’s Roses started out life in Knutsford, Cheshire when Arthur Fryer began growing roses commercially on a small plot of land in 1912 and from humble beginnings, his reputation as a supplier of excellent quality roses grew throughout the region. In 1928 the business relocated to its current site where Fryer’s Garden Centre sits now, with more land and more roses!
After the war Arthur was joined by his two sons and together, they built up an extensive business, attending all the major flower shows, with their roses gaining further international acclaim.
In 1999 Fryer's were honoured to be one of the first recipients of The Queen Mother's International Rose Award. The award established by The Royal National Rose Society recognises outstanding achievement in the raising of new cultivars.
Fryer's have been specialising in roses for over a century, are internationally renowned and have gained prestigious awards from all over the world including two from America (the Oscars of the rose world), Rose of the Year in New Zealand, three from the Hague and four UK Rose of the Year Awards! Fryer's own rose 'Super Trouper' was crowned Novelty Rose 2010, and the rose 'Lucky!' was awarded Rose of the Year 2009. Fryer's Roses have been awarded Rose of the Year 2013, releasing 'You're Beautiful' at Hampton Court 2012.
