The “Set-and-Forget” Squad:

Knock Out Series: These champs are the Rocky Balboas of the rose world, taking punches from all sides – heat, rain, pests – and coming back for more. They bloom non-stop from spring to fall, barely need deadheading, and shrug off disease like it’s yesterday’s news. Perfect for forgetful parents and enthusiastic weed-pulling toddlers alike.

Oso Happy Series: If sunshine is your family’s middle name, these cheerful fellows are your match. These cheerful roses thrive in hot, dry climates, meaning they’re happy with just a little water and soak up the sun like little champs. All summer long, they’ll shower you with bright blooms, bringing smiles and good vibes to your patio. So sit back, relax, and let the Oso Happy roses do the work while you enjoy the sunshine and family time.

Flower Carpet Series: Think ground cover meets rose bush, and you’ve got this low-maintenance wonder. They spread like a happy, fragrant carpet, smothering weeds and adding a touch of romance to paths, borders, or even spilling over containers. Great for families with busy feet (and curious noses) that wander through the garden.


The “Minimal Fuss, Maximum Wow” Bunch:

Munstead Wood: This beauty boasts big, fragrant blooms in a gorgeous deep red, all on a disease-resistant, easy-care bush. It needs a good prune once a year, but rewards you with stunning, old-fashioned charm throughout the season. A touch of romance for even the busiest of backyards.

Zéphirine Drouhin: If you dream of climbing roses but lack the time for trellises and constant attention, meet your new beau. This charmer thrives on minimal pruning and throws out clusters of vibrant pink blooms that climb gracefully over fences, arches, or even your mailbox. Picture storybook charm with minimal effort.

Golden Celebration: Imagine sunshine in flower form, that’s Golden Celebration. This cheerful rose boasts large, golden-yellow blooms with a sweet fragrance, all on a healthy, disease-resistant bush. It needs a good prune once a year, but delivers cheer and sunshine from spring to fall without demanding much in return. Perfect for bringing a ray of golden optimism to your family’s day.

Tips for Potted Paradise:

Living the balcony life? No worries! Many of these rose varieties thrive in containers, bringing a touch of fragrant magic to even the smallest of spaces. Here’s how to make it happen:

Pick the right pot: Drainage is key! Choose a pot with drainage holes and at least twice the diameter of the rose’s root ball. Terracotta breathes well, while plastic holds moisture – choose what suits your forgetfulness level.

Potting mix matters: Use a good quality potting mix for roses, with plenty of drainage and organic matter. Don’t skimp on this – happy roots mean happy roses (and less drama for you).

Water wisely: Roses like a good soak, but don’t let them sit in waterlogged misery. Stick your finger in the soil – if it’s dry an inch down, it’s watering time.

Feed for blooms: Give your potted rose a little boost with a rose-specific fertilizer during the blooming season. A monthly feeding keeps the blooms coming and your family’s smiles widening.

Want to add instant colour and fragrance to your balcony? Opt for a pre-potted rose bouquet from a delivery service. You’ll get a curated selection of vibrant blooms, ready to brighten up your space


Let’s Dig In ((Together!):

Planting roses with your little ones can be a magical adventure that’s fun for all. It’s a great lesson in responsibility, and a chance to create memories that bloom long after the last petal falls. Here’s how to make it fun and educational:

Pick your project: Start small – a single potted rose is perfect for little hands. Choose a variety with interesting foliage or fragrant blooms to ignite their curiosity.

Get messy: Let them dig, mix, and get their hands dirty! It’s sensory play at its finest, and they’ll feel a sense of ownership over their new rose friend.

Watering fun: Turn watering into a game! Let them use little watering cans to give their rose a drink, counting sprinkles and singing silly songs.
