David Austin Cut Roses: Always something new to explore.


David Austin Roses are known for their shape and scent and are always special to use. This season they have unveiled a new trend for bold wedding bouquets to inspire you.


A LIFETIME OF BREEDING EXCELLENCE

In the early 1950s, David Austin set out to create a more beautiful rose. Sixty years on, this simple objective remains. As a result, rose breeding is often described as an art and a science.


All David Austin roses have a collective style and reflect one man’s vision. All have beautiful blooms and, in most cases, wonderful fragrance held on graceful, attractive shrubs. A garden of these outstanding roses is hard to beat for the sheer exuberance of flowers and scent.



I was lucky to be invited to a special rose event in Holland, organized by David Austin and able to experience all their roses in real life. As well as beautiful arrangements and lots of information, they also presented an exciting, bold and on-trend colour combination for the modern bride.


INTRODUCING BOLD WEDDING BOUQUETS


As I said in my trends report for 2022, colour is back! This wedding arrangement is an excellent reminder that we should dare to use colour. So let this inspire you.


The David Austin roses used in these arrangements:

Edith is a rose that we adore seeing at summer weddings. Her colour palette is a mix of turmeric and coral, and her perfume is a mix of fruit and myrrh. Here she is complemented well by her David Austin rose sisters Beatrice, Capability and Tess.


David Austin roses are available through Florismartdirect and most suppliers. If you care for them properly, you will never be disappointed. Below are care tips for your David Austin Roses.


As a guide, we recommend the delivery of your roses four days before your event.


HOW TO TREAT YOUR DAVID AUSTIN ROSES – CARE TIPS


  1. Unpack your roses as soon as possible.

  2. Keep the packing in place where possible.

  3. Trim the stems by 1-3cm.

  4. Place the stems in water with flower food.

  5. Let them hydrate for 4 to 6 hours; if your roses arrive later in the afternoon, let them hydrate overnight.

  6. After hydration, remove packaging and place them in a bucket where they have enough space to open.

  7. Retain guard petals as they will disappear as the bloom opens.

  8. Place them at ambient room temperature to help them open.

  9. Once open, you can place them back in a cool temperature until you are ready to use them.
