With the Wedding season just around the corner, this Blog is going to help you decide what to buy the Bride and Groom or the Parents.
A unique name your own rose bush named after the Happy Couple and with your own photo printed onto the plant label which is waterproof and frost proof.
Roses make a perfect gift for a wedding, the history of the rose goes back millions of years, the rose is undoubtedly the worlds favourite flower and it is grown all over the world, Roses have such a wide range of colours ranging from pure white, Clotted creams, Yellows, Tangerine and Peach, to crimson reds, Burgundy and Lilac Blues, so whatever colour scheme you have there is going to be a perfect match with a rose.
There are many varieties of roses, we sell floribunda roses and patio roses, these roses are full of colour during the summer months June-September. The floribunda roses needs to be planted in the garden and the Patio roses have smaller flowers but can be planted in the garden or a pot, making it ideal if someone only has a small balcony.
The Scent of the rose can be simply stunning, from the clotted cream rose to the deep burgundy, they all have a strong deep scent, strongest after the sun goes down on a hot summer day when they release the oil in the air.
Each Rose bush is gift wrapped, comes with a certificate which will include your message and the plant label, the name will be logged and it is unique to you.
March has seen us launch our new website, we are able to show our customers how unique our roses are and each and everyone is unique to you. We are the only company to print your image onto the plant label which is waterproof and frost proof. We hope we have given you some ideas on what you can use. Whether you want to purchase something special for a Birthday, Anniversary or just a Thank you we are sure the recipient will be very happy.
Our roses also make a lovely Remembrance gift, for you or someone else.
We can also print a corporate logo for leaving gifts for employees.
All our roses are unique they are un-named and so we can name each one individually, this is not something off the shelf but a very unique and personal lasting gift.
With the days becoming longer, we can enjoy our gardens a little bit more each day. Now is a great time to tidy up the beds, you can still cut back your roses, cutting back will back the plant stronger and bushier.
We are always looking at new and old products to use in order to find the best way to keep our roses looking healthy, but often it is the old fashioned methods that work best, over the next few months we will be publishing our list of the best products to use...so please watch this space.

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.
I have a problem with Black Spot?
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.
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.
MARCH 2020 Welcome to our Blog. Its official February was the wettest on record. If you have heavy clay soil, you will need to break up some of the soil and introduce some manure or compost, or leave it to the worms… But it’s always a good idea to feed your roses now, with a good Rose Feed and again in the summer. 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.
