Into Infinity with Roses Forever
'Infinity roses are always grown close to the customer’ says Rosa Eskelund from Roses Forever. 'We believe that it is much better for the environment to grow close to the consumer.'
Roses Forever has licensed growers all over the world for their stunning range of rose varieties.
High Quality Pot Roses
The method of propagation in rose production is very important and makes the foundation for a good high quality pot rose.
Rosa continues ‘Therefore it's a big part of our job as breeder to visit new growers worldwide to give both knowledge and support. We can also ensure that our licensed growers maintain the high quality of production that is essential to our clients.'
Healthy roots are important and ensure high quality finished plants
Naturally Compact - Short Culture Time
The genetics of the Infinity Roses are relatively easy to propagate and grow, as they are naturally compact and fast growing. A very important aspect for roses in short culture production is use of the correct peat and fertiliser.
10 Week Culture Time
Culture time is only 10 weeks as it is for all pot sizes 10,5-15cm also bowls in 15cm and 21cm can be grown in the same time frame. This results in high quality and less waste which is also good for the environment.
