We like our cheeks rosy and our world rose-tinted

 so we’re leaping at the chance to become rosarians with only two secateur snips and a patch of soil. Roses grown on their own roots are healthier, stronger, hardier and bloom more than grafted roses.

Cut 30cm length sticks now, burying them in the ground about halfway. The only tricky bit is remembering to get them the right way up.


By late next summer the rose-sticks will have had chance to grow their own roots, so dig them up and move to their final spot. Velvety blooms and heady fragrance aplenty. And all for free.

We beg your pardon.
