How To Make A Rose Bud Big
QUESTION: I want to make a rose bud big and have good texture.
ANSWER: Hi! The hybrid tea roses, and grandiflora roses have the largest rose flowers, up to 6 inches across.
Roses that have not had ample water, or nutrients, tend to produce smaller rose blooms, so keeping your roses well-watered and fertilized is very important.
Also extreme heat can cause roses to produce smaller flowers, if they produce them at all.
A technique called Disbudding maximizes the size of a rose flower.
This technique for producing large high quality rose blooms, is used by exhibitors.
To produce a single, large beautiful rose bloom. remove all rose buds except the terminal bud at the stem's tip.
This allows all the stem's energy to go toward that one bud.
