Best English Roses for Cutting from the Garden

Best Roses for Cutting, Best English Roses for Bouquets


English roses are a fabulous choice for cutting. Their abundant and incredibly beautiful blossoms, coupled with their delightful fragrance, make them real favorites to enjoy indoors or give to loved ones. Thanks to their repeat flowering qualities, English roses produce exquisite blooms time and again and you will alway find a few perfect blooms that beg to be brought indoors.

For gardeners, it is always a special pleasure to cut flowers, fresh from their own garden - but when the rose bush you cut your flowers from is covered in blooms from early summer till frost, this pleasure can be happily renewed. 

There are many roses to grow that make great long-lasting cut flowers. According to Michael Marriott, technical director of David Austin Roses, here is the list of English Rose varieties that are particularly good for cutting, with a potential vase life of 5 or more days.
