About Us

The Monnow Valley, near Skenfrith, in the county of Monmouthshire is home to Petals of the Valley. 

Here we grow fragrant roses and the companion plants that help our roses thrive such as calendula, mignonette, lavender, rosemary and garlic.

We are Denise Jones and Desdemona Freeman

With the seemingly impossible aim of making pure welsh rose essential oil. As it turns out, we have produced the most delightful, rose oil rich, fragrant rosewater of which we are so proud we no longer intend to make rose oil!

Recycling and recycled material and the minimal use of electricity are at the heart of all our processes.

Any electricity we do use is mitigated by our solar panel array.

Our water is untainted spring water. Rigorously tested as you can imagine.

We would never test on animals and are committed to being bee friendly.

Our ingredients are 100% natural with any waste going to the compost heap.

In the field we use natural soil enhancers such as horse and cow manure (thanks to Denise’s lads, Apollo and Laddy). We use straw to capitalise on the non invasive no dig method for making beds.

The ingredient with the least environmental impact of all – time – allows our rose waters to mature in what seems to be a truly alchemical way.
