How We Grow Our Roses

We bring in large rootstock and plant into big 4-gallon fiber pots and send them out to stores in early to mid April.

Fiber pots breathe better and dry out a little quicker – which the roses love.  We hold the roses in a cold frame during the really cold months of winter as they root in and start to set buds for leaves.  Then, when the time is right, we set them out into retail.  Roses have delicate root systems, they don’t always travel well over long distances on trucks.  It works better to grow them close to where they are sold.

Once you get the rose home there is another advantage to the big fiber pot.  You can leave it on and plant the whole thing!  Remember, roses don’t like to have their roots disturbed too much.  Leave the pot on and set the whole thing into the hole (the pot will degrade in a few weeks.), the roots will stay happy and the plant, and ultimately the flowers will perform much better.

Types of Roses

Roses come in a diverse array of types and classifications, each with its own unique characteristics and growing requirements. Here are some common types of roses:

  • Hybrid Tea Roses: Known for their large, elegant blooms and long stems, hybrid tea roses are popular for cut flower arrangements and garden display.
  • Floribunda Roses: Floribunda roses produce clusters of smaller blooms on compact, bushy plants, offering a profusion of color and extended flowering periods.
  • Grandiflora Roses: Grandiflora roses combine the traits of hybrid tea and floribunda roses, producing large, showy blooms on tall, vigorous plants.
  • Climbing Roses: Climbing roses feature long, flexible canes that can be trained to climb trellises, arbors, or walls, adding vertical interest to gardens and landscapes.
  • Shrub Roses: Shrub roses are versatile, low-maintenance plants that offer a range of flower forms, colors, and fragrances, making them ideal for informal garden settings.
  • Miniature Roses: Miniature roses are compact, dwarf varieties that produce small blooms on petite plants, perfect for container gardening or small garden spaces.
