Weʼre raising £2,500 to replenish the Rose Garden in Preston Park, Brighton with new roses.

Brighton & Hove, East Sussex

Don't have time to donate right now?


When in full bloom, the scent and colour of the roses is magical."

Following the launch of the Rose Garden Appeal in February David Austin, the famous UK rose grower, has kindly agreed to match fund any money raised. Therefore we are aiming to reach a goal of £2,500 so that we can order roses this summer to plant in early 2024. We are counting on your generosity in order to restore and maintain the much loved integrity of the Rose Garden.

The Rose Garden was designed in the 19th century. It was restored and replanted in 2001 with a Heritage Lottery Fund grant and the current planting incorporates four thousand shrub-rose bushes selected for their smell and attractive bloom. With as many as one hundred different species it is a showcase for the famous rose breeder David Austin, who has supplied the park with roses for a number of years. When in full bloom, the scent and colour of the roses is magical, and visitors come from afar to see the city’s largest rose garden. However, over the years we have lost some of the plants and many are now aged and in need of replacement. It has been assessed that we need to replace 500 bushes as well as applying new fertiliser. The cost of the entire project is approximately £5,000. Therefore, Friends of Preston Park is launching an appeal to raise the necessary funds so that we can initiate the process of plant replacement and complete the garden overall. If you would like to contribute please do so. Your contribution will be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Friends of Preston Park (FoPP)
