Q: Why are my roses not exactly the same colour as in the picture?
A: At different times of the year roses may slightly change in colour due to variance in temperature and sunlight. Like our skin, roses have pigments and the change in sunlight and temperatures can affect the colour of rose petals. We endeavour to take pictures as true to its colour as possible, however the change in varieties is beyond our control and are influenced by Mother Nature.

Q: How much do your roses cost?
A: Contact your local florist for rose prices. Due to seasonal differences, one generic price cannot be supplied for all of our roses. Stem length, varietal size, seasonal availability and supply (which may change at any time, just like fruit and vegetables) all affect price.

Q: How do I keep my roses alive longer?
A: If the roses have been out of water for a while, ensure you trim a small length off the bottom of the stem with a sharp knife or scissors before placing them back in water. This will allow the rose to drink easier through the stem. Remove any foliage that sits below the water line in your vase. You may add a very small amount (only a drop or two) of bleach into the water to kill any bacteria, allowing for maximum vase life. Also keep in a cool and dry environment as possible (away from heaters, direct light and air-conditioners) to prolong the life of your gorgeous roses. Changing the water and trimming the bottoms of the stems every few days also prolongs the vase life of roses.

Q: Does Grandiflora offer garden varieties?
A: No. Grandiflora specialises in Cut Roses, which are roses that are grown in environmentally controlled glasshouses. We do offer propagation of our Cut rose varieties for commercial Cut Rose growers.

Q: What’s the difference between David Austin garden roses and David Austin cut roses.
A: The David Austin cut roses are specifically bred for arrangement usage which is grown in glasshouses. The holding ability of a David Austin cut rose is longer than that of a garden grown David Austin rose. Once the garden rose is cut, it can bloom very quickly and petals shatter. It is specially grown for garden beauty, not for arrangement usage.
