Rosie doesn't need much introduction - she's the reigning royalty of the garden, a favourite amongst lovers, and even Shakespeare couldn't help but name drop her several dozen times.
With her soft pink flowers and sweet scent, Rosie's beauty is truly timeless. The remains of the first discovered rose dates back to 40 million years ago, and in China, she's been a garden favourite for at least 5,000 years. Ever the romantic, Rosie symbolises love, sensuality, and beauty - she's a famed aphrodisiac. Her petals are used to make perfumes, oils, and delicious treats (she's pretty popular in Turkish cuisine), and her light antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties make her a popular choice in skincare.

HOW TO CARE FOR ROSIE (ROSE)
Rosie likes a sunny spot, but doesn't mind a good refreshing breeze. She'll do fine on an unsheltered balcony or garden patch.
She likes her soil to stay moist - water regularly and don't let her dry out.
Prune away her dead and wilting flowers in the spring, so that her late summer blooms are nice and showy.
Feed her in April and June to keep her growing strong.
Going the extra mile
If you're keeping Rosie in a pot, apply a protective layer of mulch in the winter (jute, tree bark, or fresh soil are good materials) by piling it up till it covers most of her. If you don't have the materials for this, use an upside down cardboard box or plastic bucket (weighed down with pegs or stones if necessary) to keep her warm.
If possible, keeping her in a shed, garage, or conservatory will work too.
If you're transplanting her into a garden bed, she'll be more hardy and won't need any covering.
Snip off her pretty blooms to give to a loved one, or dry out her petals to make fragrant pot pourri, infuse oils, or even adorn baked goods.
