A carpet of roses

  • The world's most popular and biggest selling collection of roses is the Flower Carpet Roses. This is because they are easy to grow, require little maintenance and produce a delightful flowering display in a variety of colours.
  • Adding a ground cover into a rose garden bed is great as it will cool the soil and reduce evaporation, as well as help smoother weed seeds.
  • The great thing about these plants is they are disease resistant and will flower for 9-10 months of the year.
  • To stimulate more flower production, prune the roses after their flower flushes.
