Knights Roses, opened in the 1950’s, are one of Australia’s premier rose growers and fittingly call South Australia, Australia’s rose state, home.

Anyone who has driven past Gawler or come through Angle Vale is bound to have been treated to this sea of head turning blooms that colour the surrounding landscape.

Growing over 400,000 roses annually of over 600 varieties, Knights Roses Managing Director Daniel Knight is a busy man! Thankfully he’s found time to show us around.

We take a look at some of the best performing new rose varieties including Black Caviar, Daniel Morcombe Rose, as well a new release – Love You – which will be out in time for Mother’s Day.

Kim shows you how to bud a rose, which begins the years long process involved in creating new rose plants. Considering the effort that goes into producing the plant and the low price we get them for, roses are a constantly growing investment for the garden.

Knights Roses ships all over Australia to garden centres, or you can buy directly from their nursery via mail order, just visit their website:
