Heather's Helpful Hint

Knock Out Roses are a Must-Have!
April 29, 2010

Who can resist a flowering shrub which blooms from late spring until fall? If you have not already discovered Knock Out roses you have to try one (or three, ten, even fifteen, insist some of our customers!) They come in red and double red, pink and double pink, blushing pink, and yellow. Although these roses are easy care and low maintenance there is one thing you must do for success.

Fertilizing monthly is an absolute necessity, and rose food which is formulated to feed roots, foliage, and flower production must be used. Some products have protection against disease and insect damage included in the formula.

Of course we carry a good selection of other garden roses, including climbers and English roses for those of you who can't resist those incredible flowers. Our Gifts & Home Décor director, Lucy, discovered English roses a few years ago and now she can't resist adding something each season to her collection!

Stop by soon. We are in the process of stocking for the season and will have a full selection by Mother's Day. Roses are a great gift idea!
