  • Bareroot Roses

    Bareroot roses are roses that have been removed from their soil and pruned of all blooms and leaves. We handpick 2-3 years old roses with strong roots system for the best quality. They are easier to grow and produce many blooms like other mature roses after 6 to 8 weeks.

  • Airlayering Rooted Roses

    Air layering is a process to make a new plant from an existing plant. The section of plant stem grows roots and stays attached to the mother plant until they have formed after 1 month. Airlayering rooted roses takes 6 to 8 weeks to grow and start producing first flower. They are much cheaper than bareroots, however, they require more attention and skills for take care of them.
