Dickson Roses no longer breeding after 140 years

Growing roses is not a hobby for Colin Dickson - it's in his family roots.

Dickson Roses in Newtownards, County Down, has been in business for more than 180 years but the rose-breeding side of its business closed last year.

And Mr Dickson's two daughters are not going down the garden path when it comes to their careers.
