June: The Rosy Month.



                                                                        The Rosy Month!!!!!!


With every rosebush in the country starting to bloom , every colour shape and size rose is coming to view.

Spray roses, Rambling roses, Tea Roses, Standard Roses. This is why I call June the Rosy Month.

Its their perfect shape , their endless amount of petals, the way they have guard petals to protect them until they’re ready for cutting and arranging . Yes June is a Rosy month.

Growing Roses is a craft in itself. Knowing when to treat for the various bugs and aphids. Knowing when to prune, feed, train the branches. It is not for the lazy gardener ( like myself) although I do have two standard roses which despite my pure amateur skills continue to bloom and show an abundance of bright red roses. They even have a scent.

Cut roses as used by florists , are mainly imported from Holland , Equador, Columbia and other such countries , where they have the heat and sunlight required to produce adequate supplies of roses.

My clients ask me why roses don’t smell like they did when I was a kid !

There are several varieties that are fragrant. Norma Jean is a wonderful ivory roses with a tight heart centre. Smells divine.

Red Naomi is a fabulously fragrant red rose ( crazy expensive at Valentines day) smells wonderful.

Purple power is a wonderful Purplish Pink rose. Opens quite quickly but smells superb.

All these are available now.

This is why June is the Rosy Month.

Have a great Month. See you in July.
