The Heart Is
As part of his commission Fagen has purchased a new rose.
Developed by Cockers
Nursery in Aberdeen, the rose , originally known only
by a code, JC30518/A, has been named through a consultative
process across the entire area of Royston, Germiston, Blackhill
and Provanmill. A pupil from St Roch's Primary School in Royston
selected the winning name.
The rose will go on sale nationally and internationally from
November 2002 representing the aspirations of the area.
Both parks will be planted with the rose, and all those people
who have been involved with the naming and other aspects of
the project will have a rose delivered to them for the next
planting season. By summer 2003 the whole of the north east
of Glasgow will be dotted with this dark pink, highly scented
hybrid T rose.
