Kentucky Roses David Austin Nursery, Display Garden & Coffee Shop
Welcome to Kentucky Roses, a commercial field-grown rose farm specialising in David Austin roses, with a display garden, nursery & cafe. Run by Kate & Dave Hedges in the historic New England village of Kentucky (NSW Australia) the business caters for the wholesale cut flower industry and local weddings and events.
Kentucky Roses Nursery, Garden & cafe will be open every Sunday 10 - 5pm from November 10 th 2013 to April 2014, with standard and bush David Austin Roses for sale. Groups can visit by appointment or on days the nursery is open, and enjoy a stroll through the garden to view the various roses.
Cappuccinos, tea, cakes, savouries and cold drinks can be purchased from the small cafe at Kentucky Roses (for more extensive eating options nearby we suggest The Kentucky Store licensed cafe and Pinot Restaurant at Eastview Estate for delicious lunches & evening meals with wine).
Kentucky Roses offers visitors the unique experience of being able to view a rose in the garden (it's scent, colour, growth habit etc) - and select their favourites, many of which are available for purchase as a potted rose.
*Garden entry is free with the purchase of beverage AND cake/savoury (per person) otherwise a garden entry fee of $5 (pp) will be charged. ie if just purchasing coffee, garden entry fee will be charged.
We are now open every Sunday from 10am to 5pm until April (date of end of season closure to be advised)
Please feel free to contact us with inquiries and bookings (often a good idea to book larger groups in advance).
