A rose wants to shine, always. No matter if it's a cut rose, a pot rose for your patio or a planted garden rose. These roses by Select Breeding have one thing in common: they promise to shine for a long time in your outdoor space. Owners Dennis and Michael de Geus are not easy to please. It takes a sense for roses to create the best patio and garden roses.

Patio Roses & Garden Roses

There are some things you should know about patio and garden roses. They are the same and not the same at the same time. Are you still following this? Although the Select Breeding varieties can all be used for potted patio roses and for planted garden roses, the difference is in the way you place them there.


Select Breeding quote on Thursd


Patio roses need extra attention when it comes to water. The plant does not get its water from open soil, so drying out is something to actively prevent. When you decide to plant the roses in the soil they become garden roses. The best time of the year to do this is autumn. It is of absolute importance to pick a sunny spot getting at least 4 hours a day.

So, How to Become the Perfect Patio and Garden Rose?

How does a rose become a Select Breeding rose? Over 25 years of experience is combined with the knowledge and testing facilities of African, European, and South American partners. This method allows this breeder to develop new cultivars that meet the highest possible standards. 

Before the Select Breeding garden and patio roses are marketed, they undergo a very extensive selection procedure - both in an unheated greenhouse and outdoors. They are then selected on criteria such as winter hardiness, perpetual flowering, health, and compact growth.

Thanks to a specially developed cultivation method for patio roses, this breeder can supply a flowering plant with a well-developed root ball as early as April or May, making these roses a beautiful addition to both your patio and your garden.

But before all... it's most of all the love for roses.
