It seems like the weather has been quite uncooperative for gardening this summer, with all the rain making it challenging to tend to your garden. However, it's great to hear that your roses are thriving despite the conditions, thanks to your diligent deadheading, feeding, and spraying.

Even though the rain might be reducing the need for watering, remember that your roses will still benefit from regular feeding. Using a tomato fertilizer can provide the nutrients they need to continue blooming beautifully. Additionally, a good rose clear spray will help protect them from pests like green and whitefly, ensuring they stay healthy.

We have a stunning selection of roses in stock, with a variety of beautiful colours including Yellow, Tutti Fruiti, Scented Clotted Cream, and Raspberry Crush. All of our roses are scented, adding a delightful fragrance to your garden. If you keep up with the deadheading, your roses should continue to bloom until October, depending on the weather and your location in the UK.

Name a Rose after the Happy Couple....

 

That sounds like a lovely and thoughtful gift idea! Giving a rose bush named after the mother of the bride and groom is not only unique but also symbolic. Roses are often associated with love, beauty, and romance, making them a perfect gift for a wedding.

The idea of having a rose bush that the couple can plant in their garden or on their patio adds an extra touch of sentimentality. Every time they see the rose blooming, it will serve as a reminder of their special day and the love and support of their parents.

Additionally, the option to name more roses for future anniversaries or children provides an opportunity to continue building on this living memory, making it a gift that keeps on giving for years to come.

Overall, gifting a personalized rose bush from Rose Names seems like a beautiful gesture that the mothers of the bride and groom will surely appreciate and cherish.

Summer has arrived late! with temperatures in the South East about to hit 30 oc it is hard to think about the frost to come.

We have floribunda roses, these are roses which flower again and again and there are multiple flowers on each stem appose to hybrid T roses which only have one rose on one stem and they often don't flower for such a long time.

The Patio roses are covered in flowers and apart from the usual dead heading, watering you haven't really got to bother too much with them, they are happy in a pot or the garden whereas the floribunda roses need to be in the garden as they need more room, and will produce bigger flowers.

 

Why would you choose to buy a Rose Bush as a gift for a Birthday, Anniversary, Remembrance, Pet Remembrance?

Firstly unlike a bunch of flowers your rose bush will last for many years if you look after it.

All our roses are gift wrapped so you don't have to bother wrapping up a gift this is done for you, we add your personal message to the certificate and we will even print your photo onto the horticultural label, making this a truly personalised gift, it is definately not off the shelf..

Summer is here... and all our roses are looking glorious, we have added a couple of New Roses to our collection Rhubarb and Custard colour and Raspberry Crush, these are beautiful colours, but we still have all our classic coloured roses, Clotted Cream is beautiful with a scent, Yellow, Red and Pink are all beautiful and fill your garden with colour and scent throughout the Summer.

Hopefully we are now at the end of the rainy season! What has been the wettest month for many years, it has been difficult for us all getting into the garden to clean up after many Winter Months, at least it is now light and there does seem to be light at the end of the tunnel....fingers crossed. But we have lots to look forward too, the coronation on the 6th May and the Wedding Season just around the corner.  Why not name a gift after the Happy Couple or the Mother of the Bride and Groom, if you take a look at our sister site we have some wonderful forever roses, take a look at our new collection 'Sentimental Collection' https://www.forever-roses.co.uk/sentimental-collection-bride-and-groom.

 

We have just received our New Season Stock, we have plenty of Clotted Cream, Burgundy, Yellow, Red and Pink in Stock, it is always a delight when the tables fill up again with all of our roses.

We have reduced the price of all the 'Name your Own Roses' for a short time, and the price will go back to the normal price in the next few weeks, so if you are wanting a 'Father's Day name your own rose, you can pre-order it now and we will send it out in June, saving you £10.

With a very busy Christmas over here at Rose Names, and our new roses for 2023 arriving it has been a couple of busy months.  the weather has not been kind and after weeks and weeks of rain we now have a very cold spell.   Valentines is just around the corner and we have added a lovely bottle of rich ruby red wine with the most fabulous patio rose which has blooms of red soft velvet petals, it is an ideal gift to give to a loved one at this special time of year. go on... spoil a loved one you still have time!

There is still lots to do in the garden, it you have not cutback your roses you still have time, your plant will be much bushier when it puts on growth in the spring and summer, all roses do need to be cut back to improve the plant and stop the rose bush from getting too leggy, and once the frost has finally gone you can add some blood fish and bone around the base of your rose bush.

If you have been keeping warm this winter with a real log fire you can add the ash around the rose bush too, it is full of potassium which roses need to grow heathy, if there are any leaves laying around the base of your bush it is best to remove these to ensure your rose will be free of any diseases from any bugs and other harmful pests.

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of 

 

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

 

She always showed such grace and dignity whilst

devoting her life to her service.

 

She will forever be our Queen.

 

The Royal family are in our heartfelt thoughts at this 

very sad time.

With the summer in full swing, now is a great time to sit back and enjoy your roses.  However before you sit back there are still a few jobs to do! take off any yellowing leaves, make sure the roses are watered, it is much better to keep them moist rather than water when they are too dry.   Once a week feed with a fertilizer, we will look into the different ones latter in the blog, also add the feed after you have watered them.  Make sure you dead head, this will ensure your roses will look their best all summer long, there will be times when you will not have any flowers on the rose bush, usually floribunda roses flower twice a year, but sometimes they will flower all year long provided you invest in a little care and attention.

We still do have many colour's available, please see some of our roses in this beautiful bouquet above.

June has seen our garden nursery bursting with colour, the weather has been mixed, but the roses continue to bloom.  We have got some lovely colours available this year which includes a Burgundy/Fuchsia Pink

rose bush and also a lovely tangerine/coral colour rose bush. We continue to sell Remembrance Roses, Birthday and Anniversary Roses and Patio Roses, we have added many gifts to our range, this includes RHS, William Morris and Kath Kidston, add any extra gift to your rose order and you wont have to pay any postage on your item, if you order one of our 'name your own roses' we are still offering free post and packing.

There is no better time than now to consider growing your own roses.    All our roses are grown in the UK, you can then produce all the cut roses you want not just for valentines Day, not only that but you can name a rose after a loved one.

Create your own little memorial garden naming a rose after each family member or just give to someone you care about, it will not only encourage them into the garden but will give them an interest.

Some people find it hard on deciding which colour rose they should choose, obviously it is a personal choice and we are always happy to offer advice when someone calls us, but we have included a list of roses and their meanings below.

August News!

Summer is nearly over or has it even started? So perhaps it would be a good idea to mention a few things in this blog regarding 

roses and warm humid weather.

What if you have a problem with green Fly?

We use Rose Clear every week, by spraying your roses before it gets any diseases will ensure that you have a healthy rose bush, but if you do get green fly, spray the plant with 'Lavender washing up Liquid' dilute it and spray onto the plant-yes it really works.

Rose Care Tips for the Summer

 

Feeding your Roses

Feed your roses with either a granular fertilizer or Liquid fertilizer. If using liquid fertilizer regular feeding every 2-3 weeks until late summer, will give you beautiful blooms throughout the growing season.

If conditions are dry, water your roses before feeding them and then keep them well hydrated afterwards, this helps the plants absorb nutrients better, and prevent fertilizer burn on roots and leaves.

 

Wedding Season

Well, the wedding season is really in full swing! although numbers are restricted, you can still send the happy couple a beautiful rose to remember their special day.

Print their photo onto the plant label, a perfect gift to give.

Spring News

 

Spring has been a very wet one, but we have continued to grow as a company taking on more staff, we have introduced new gift wrapping and our logo has changed together with our certificate and label layout.

All of our roses are unique and very personal to you. Each one is individually gift wrapped and the certificate and label are also personal to you.

We are the only company to print your image/photo onto the plant label using our special in house printers that print onto our waterproof and frost proof labels.

We still have all our colours in stock, and with Mother’s Day around the corner we have got a Special Edition Coral Patio Rose bush, which will be happy in a pot or the garden, it will produce 100’s of small flowers throughout the summer.
