Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question we may already have the answer.
You can buy our roses worldwide from your chosen florist 12 months of the year. Please pre-order well in advance of your event as your roses will be specially ordered for you.
For floral designers, our roses are available to order from high-quality wholesalers all year round.
Not every rose has a scent. Our collection ranges from very light to more intense perfumes.
As part of our rose breeding philosophy, we look for fragrance as one of the many attributes, but it can be elusive. Rose breeding isn’t an exact science, and sometimes the unique beauty and charisma of a rose, such as Juliet, will more than compensate for an elusive fragrance.
Our cut roses share the same breeding heritage and exceptional quality and style as our garden roses. However, they have been created specifically for floristry with long, straight stems and large blooms that perform magnificently in arrangements and bouquets.
Our cut roses are grown in greenhouses which means unlike garden roses, they are in flower all year round.
Because our cut roses have been specially grown for floristry, they are not available to buy as garden plants. However, with over 200 David Austin garden rose varieties to choose from, you’ll certainly find one that is perfect for you. Please get in touch if you would like us to recommend a garden rose that shares similar characteristics to one of our cut roses.
Your roses may still be in bud. Part of their beauty lies in their evolution from bud to open bloom. This can take a few days and create changes to the colour, shape and scent of your roses. You can see a video of the bud to bloom transformation here.
The vase life does depend on the rose, but it’s usually around five days from the fully open bloom stage. Some varieties, such as Tess and Darcey, will last much longer.
We recommend replacing the water and flower food every few days to prolong vase life. Keep cool and away from direct heat or cold.
First of all, don’t worry; our roses are incredibly resilient. We tightly pack the roses to protect them during transportation. Once you’ve rehydrated the stems, it is time to space them out in tall buckets at ambient room temperature, where they will continue to take-up water and flower food, developing their natural form over time.
Take a look at our care and handling video for further information.
If you are uncertain at any point, please take photographs and get in touch – we will be happy to give you further advice.
The marks may be the natural veining of the rose, or bruising due to petal creasing or friction against the packaging. As these are outer guard petals, they protect the inner bloom, and as the petals unfurl, the guard petals, and the markings, will become hidden.
