BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Local grower Golden Valley Roses has reinvented the wheel. Actually, they've reinvented the flower in the form of their mini rose trees. These 10-inch-tall creations are a new take on an old bloom, the perfect way to convey thoughtfulness in more permanent form.
After taking a turn inside, these specimens can be planted outside for ongoing enjoyment. So can Golden Valley's more traditional potted roses, grown with expert care on their small, family-operated farm in Bakersfield, California. The company provides locally grown roses and plants to areas both nearby and further afield, offering a green and affordable alternative to expensive imports.
Fall Planting Season
More than any other time of year, fall is the best time for planting roses. Delicate roots have time to establish themselves before winter, becoming hardy and giving them a head start on spring. By then, the plant has more strength and vigor, resulting in gorgeous flowers throughout the spring, summer and following fall, depending on variety.
For those that live in areas that see snow, roses can be planted in 3-gallon containers and overwintered inside until weather permits planting outdoors.
Greener Growing Systems
Golden Valley takes special care with their roses, using a specially designed tray to give us maximum chance of development. Open on the bottom, the trays allow for air pruning of roots, avoiding the ball-like effect common to many potted plants.
This lays the foundation for gorgeous, hardy and long-lasting plants that provide enjoyment to owners year after year. It also maximizes the health of the rose so gardeners can buy fewer plants and enjoy the ones they have longer, reducing overproduction and helping the Earth.
The company strives to be green in other ways as well, growing their roses on a small but flexible plot of land, using drip hoses and harnessing the sun's energy with greenhouses. They plan to further these green efforts in future.
Limited Edition Mini Rose Trees
The limited edition run of mini rose trees includes only 2,000, though more will be available come 2016, especially if the company gets the funding it seeks. These trees are ideal as gifts for the holidays and hardy enough to transplant to the garden after they're enjoyed indoors.
Both mini tree roses and regular potted roses come in a multitude of different varieties, and both are selling quickly as customer demand grows for these high-quality plants.
