Can anyone do this ?


  • how do you name a rose for someone
  • For those wanting to dedicate plants in a Internet Linked Memorial Garden, please see:

    Yes, it is possible to name a rose, and an internet search will highlight many companies selling gift packs that include 'unique' rose seeds that can be grown into plants that you can name. This is a fun and affordable way to name a rose.

    Naming 'The One & Only' rose was different, as this rose was bred by Meilland – one of the top rose breeders in the world. Breeding roses takes time and money, as does registering the name, so these costs have to be recouped from of royalty on future sales of the rose.

    If you have a great name for rose, or would like to raise money for a charity or good cause from the sale of a rose, then start by contacting individual rose growers. They'll know exactly how this can be done, and what costs would be involved.

    Commercial rose growers need to cover their growing and production costs, too, so are more likely to be interested if you can guarantee buying a large number of rose bushes.

    Roses make a great gift, so choosing a rose with a meaningful name like 'The One & Only' gives it wide appeal.
  • What a beautiful rose. It would make a lovely Christmas present for so many special people I know. The name says it all.
  • This is a lovely idea for a present - especially for the bereaved as a reminder of their loved one. Perhaps better than flowers at a funeral?

    Because this is for a good cause as well, I will feature it on my garden ideas website, on the roses page
  • Thanks Garden Nut. I'm still picking roses from 'The One & Only'. They make beautiful single roses in a bud vase, and so fragrant!
  • Hi again, I just realised that the page which features your rose is this one, not the one above. Apologies for any confusion.

    The rose One and Only is on this Rose Bushes page.

    Hope it raises a lot for Greenfingers charity.

  • Like the idea with this rose. I have bought the Remembrance Rose on two occasions and certainly they were delighted at this.
