Planting & Care
1. Planting: Find a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant your rose in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container, and use organic soil. Place your rose, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio to place your container.
2. Watering: Water weekly, or check the surrounding soil. When the soil is dry about 3 inches down, it's time to water your rose.
If your rose is container-planted, water until you see it flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
3. Fertilizing: Feed with a liquid rose fertilizer, once in the spring and once in the summer. Follow the instructions on the package.
4. Pruning: Other than for shaping purposes, no pruning is required.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Red Drift Roses
Great! I bought 4 drift roses. Two pink and 2 red. Both are doing extremely well and looking beautiful. All are blooming.
Beautiful small bush
Arrived in great condition and was blooming after a week. It’s the perfect size for the front of beds or to put in a planter.
I was very pleased and surprised by the size and condition of these roses. I ordered 3 red and 3 coral. I didn't know what to expect but they are in great shape, green and healthy even after traveling. There are some small buds on them and the plants are close to a foot tall. I have not planted them yet but feel good knowing they are in such good shape to start. I would not normally order plants online but would not hesitate to again!
Smaller flowers than expected
The plant arrived in great shape — healthy and with buds already. I was just surprised at how small the flower blossoms are, otherwise the plant seems to be doing well.
These roses are absolutely beautiful. They continue to bloom with multiple roses non stop. Arrived packed for protection. Shipping was very fast. I am a repeat customer ordering over 10 times and will only order from FGT because of the high quality of plants I received. I highly recommend this company and these beautiful roses.
