4 New Roses To Add To Your Garden This Year

star roses and plants 2018

Roses are a classic staple in the gardening world. For good reason, I might add! They are the perfect addition to any landscape, adding color, height and fragrance. There are a variety of types of roses to choose from, making it easy to find something that suits your ideal palette and well thought out plans. 

Last season, I was able to preview and grow some radiant new varieties thanks to Star® Roses & Plants. They have been a pioneer in the field of plant development and introduction for more than 100 years.

Star Roses actually contributed heavily to my can-do attitude with growing roses. Some of the first roses I successfully grew were part of the The Knock Out® Family of Roses. Pictured below is The Pink Knock Out® Rose.

I was thrilled to try growing some new varieties last season. Each rose I received began as a bare root. I made sure to keep the roots moist while waiting to plant them. It was still too cold at the time to put them in the ground. 

24 hours before I was ready to give them a new home, I soaked them in a bucket full of water and Authentic Haven Brand Natural Brew Alfalfa Tea. Here's what the process looked like.

After soaking, I planted my bare roots in large containers outside. Once they started to sprout, I moved them directly into the ground. Here's what they looked like right before transplanting.

    I am such a huge fan of roses – altho I haven’t had much luck growing them! I had one vine that climbed up my chimney and it was so beautiful but it died because I didn’t know how to care for it properly. I’ll have to reference your tips the next time I plant some!

    Hi Angie, roses do so well in this country, and add welcome colour in the cooler months. Sadly our garden is flowerless though, the roses I have had died, probably due to not knowing what we were doing. Your four new varieties all look lovely, the gilded sun in particular.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
