David Austin Garden Roses
- David Austin set out in the 1990s to breed long lasting cut roses that captured the shape and fragrance of old garden roses. He more than succeeded. He revolutionized the industry. His legacy lives on in the huge popularity of garden rose varieties like the incredible Juliet.
Holly Chapple has long been dedicated to bringing fellow floral enthusiasts the best education and products in the flower world. With over 25 years of successfully running her floral design business, she is known as the “Flower Mamma” due to her passion as a teacher, speaker, and mentor. Her vision has brought to life the group Chapel Designers for professional florists, the annual Flowerstock event featuring top educators from around the world, and Hope Flower Farm & Winery in Virginia where visitors can celebrate living life with flowers and gathering with friends.
She believes that flowers are for everyone. You don’t have to be a professional florist to appreciate and use a deluxe flower like a garden rose. You just need a little know-how, and Holly is excited to share that knowledge with you.
“After years of providing garden roses to wedding and event clients, I noticed their magical powers and how they elevated my designs and the event to an extraordinary place. I have always felt so fortunate that I was among the first to begin using garden roses in my designs. My pure love and passion for these roses were ultimately noticed and appreciated by breeders and growers alike. Because of this, a unique and long-lasting relationship began with the most prestigious growers and breeders. The global pandemic and other life-changing (aka stress-inducing) events solidified what I always knew;
flowers have remarkable power, not just for crazy flower lovers but everyone lucky enough to acquire them. When it comes to roses or anything botanical, I believe in having the finest Mother Nature can offer. I am thrilled to be able to provide these roses, once used only for luxury weddings, to your home so you may add just a touch of luxury into your day-to-day life.”

1. Immediately unpack from the shipping box.
2. Remove rubber bands and cardboard sleeves. Leave the cellophane.
3. Using a sharp knife or bunch cutter, cut at least an inch off the bottom of the stems at a 45 degree angle.
4. Remove any foliage that will fall below the water line.
5. Immediately place in water with flower food. (Warm water will help the roses open faster, cold slower.)
6. Give your garden roses time to open. It’s not unusual for these flowers to take four days to look their best.
