Stunning pictures show the color spectrum of a rose farm - which will be sold all across the UK.

Dad-of-two William Ferguson, 52, works on the family farm which has been passed down through four generations after it was founded in the 1890s.

The roses are sold in garden centers from Wick, to Penzance, Cornwall.

The eight-acre farm in Kincardine, Fife, Scotland has 120,000 plants of all shades of the color spectrum.

William said: "They go to garden centers, we sell the plants to councils and for landscaping.

"It smells nice, you get all the different scents blowing around.

"There are 120,000 plants give or take 1,000.

"There is red, orange, stripey ones, purples, pinks, every shade of pink or red.

"There are some which are 12", and some which are 15 ft tall.

"They are sold all over Scotland and England.

"Summer is the best time, when they are out and there's no rain."
