Cutting edge

It’s time to stop and smell the roses! If your roses are still flowering in March or a summer prune has resulted in a delightful fresh flush of flowers, you can bring some of their beautiful blooms inside and create a wonderful vase display.

Here are some top tips from Judith Browne from Sydney Flower School on how to get the best out of your home grown cut roses:

To keep your rose bushes healthy and flowering well into autumn, keep feeding each week with a fast acting liquid rose fertiliser like Yates Thrive® Roses & Flowers Liquid Plant Food. It’s rich in potassium, which is a nutrient that promotes flowering. It also contains nitrogen for healthy leaf growth and phosphorus to encourage a strong root system.
