Can You Smell the Roses?

We Have Horticulturists on Staff

Stop and smell the roses! Roses are one of the most beautiful and fragrant flowers you can have in your garden. They come in many shapes and sizes and some need more care than others, so be sure to select the best varieties for your needs. Roses prefer to be planted in an area that gets 6-8 hours of sunlight and will grow well both in the ground or in a pot - E.B. Stone Rose Grow soil is designed for either planting application.
