La vie en Rose

Rose Month

Celebrate rose month by planting some of these sweet fragranced garden essentials to add colour and charm to your landscape.

With so many options to choose from, here are few varieties to consider planting this rose month:

  • If you’re looking for an abundant spray of eye catching large golden blooms to brighten up any garden for the most part of the summer, look no further than the South Africa KORberbeni.
  • For those looking for the more traditional red rose, Ingrid Bergman POULman unfading red will not disappoint. The deep, velvety red of these bold roses will add a burst of intense colour to your garden.
  • If you’re after the lingering fragrance of a beautiful rose, the Zulu Royal DORient mauve fragranr boasts a lavish show of mauve coloured roses on the tip of the stems to release its strong fragrance into the air.

Plant your rose bushes in a sunny area in your garden and water every second day with approximately 20 litres of water per week. However, be careful not to overwater. Feed your roses monthly to maximise growth and improve the quality of the blooms.

So stop and smell the roses this rose month at your nearest GCA Garden Centre.
