The roses are in full bloom!
We are the rose leaders! We only carry premium, grade #1 roses. They are planted, pruned and grown here at King’s- get the plants, the things you need to plant them, and all the information to go along with it, right here.
If you’re not sure which rose you’re looking for (or not that familiar with roses in general) here are some things to consider:
Location, location, location. Full sun or afternoon sun is best. Pick a spot that gets at least 6 hours a day for best vigor and flowering; any less than that and you may not see much color (and perhaps invite unwanted disease). Simply put, if you have a really shady garden this is not the best plant for you.
Size matters. Ever walked along a sidewalk that’s overgrown with roses? Not a pleasant experience….make sure to be aware of the plant’s expected size at maturity and put it where it can grow to full size. There are all different heights and sizes of roses, so you’re sure to find one that will appeal to you that fits a particular spot.
What’s your type? Choose a rose according to what you most enjoy- do you want to mainly view it in the landscape, will you want to regularly cut bouquets (or both)? Is fragrance important, or just the right color? There are so many types of flowers, in all kinds of colors- pointed, frilly, fully double, classic, open, clusters, single-stemmed. No need to settle!
You’ll want to give roses regular water, but they don’t require a lot. Consistent (monthly) fertilizer will keep the flowers coming, as will cutting off the spent blooms every week or two.
