Roses for cutting
Imagine filling every vase in the house to overflowing with blowsy roses dripping with colour and scent. Well, if you grow your own roses for cutting, you can have that luxury every day.
Almost any roses look lovely in a vase, but for truly show-stopping displays look for varieties with long, sturdy stems, scent and long-lasting flowers. Here are five of our favourites from the range in our garden centre.
'Graham Thomas': one of the most popular English roses ever with pure yellow flowers and golden overtones.
'Darcey Bussel': boasting masses of fully double deep rich crimson blooms and a lovely fruity fragrance.
'Golden Celebration': exceptionally fragrant, this rose produces deeply cupped, fully petalled golden yellow flowers.
'Winchester Cathedral': produces masses of loose petalled white flowers throughout the summer. Delicious fragrance with hints of honey and almond blossom.
'Iceberg': among the most reliable roses you can grow, with pure white flowers that just keep coming: the more you pick, the more it produces.
Please ask the staff in our garden centre in Two Dales, Matlock for more information and advice about growing roses as cut flowers.
