Why A Grobe Rose?
It all starts with the roots.
Far too many roses sold today are grown on imported rootstock which originate in milder countries. A Grobe rose is grown on a unique multiflora rootstock, cultivated in Ontario for Ontario climates. This rootstock has been time proven to be Canadian winter hardy, and gives excellent results - year after year. Additionally, cuttings don't propagate unwanted viruses which reduce hardiness and performance.
Careful harvest, storage and culture ensures quality.
Unique to our roses, at harvest time the leaves are allowed to come off the plant naturally - not with mechanical or chemical defoliators. A rapid chilling and careful storage at -2 degrees Celsius virtually eliminates all fungal disease, and at the same time satisfies the plant's dormancy.
Our master horticulturist carefully root prunes every rose prior to potting, to ensure strong root regeneration. A specially formulated season lasting slow release fertilizer is included with every plant. Careful monitoring, morning only waterings, regular deadheading and plant spacing ensures the cleanest and healthiest rose possible, no matter when you visit.
Tempt yourself with a visit to see our blooming roses for yourself this spring.
Peak bloom is usually the end of May - Early June.

ADDITIONAL ROSE TIPS
All roses, like any 'queen' of the garden, desire to be pampered. They need a very sunny location, very rich and fertilie soil (amended with peat moss, manure or compost), and are greedy feeders that prefer to be well fed. This fertilizer can be applied in a number of ways - see our staff to give you the benefits of each.
This fertilizing should be given when the leaves start to break out and after the first flush of flowers is over. Roses also benefit from a monthly foliar feeding. Organic fertilizers can be applied in early spring and allowed to break down over the season. Those gardeners with sandy soil may have to apply fertilizer more often because of their fast draining soil. No nitrogen should be applied six weeks before the first frost as it encourages the rose to produce even more growth which can be seriously damaged. A fertilizer that is is high in phosphorus and potassium only can be used to help strengthen the plant for the winter.
Regular deadheading of the rose blooms when they are finished blooming forces the rose bush to produce another rapidly to replace it. Here's how it is done.
