A new property purchased on the outskirts of Gawler has enabled our family-owned and operated company to continue its expansion and ensure our rose propagation operations continue to flourish.
This growth would not be possible without the support of our loyal customers, and we thank you for your repeat custom.
Reflecting on a productive and rewarding year, a highlight of last year was the launch of the Peter Brock Foundation Rose at the National Motor Museum at Bathurst, fittingly on the eve of the V8 Supercars Championship. Attending the launch on behalf of the late motorsport legend was Peter Brock’s son, Robert, brother Lewis and Danees Denman from the Brock Foundation. Much like Peter Brock himself, the rose is described as ‘luminous’ and features bright red blooms and a light perfume. Importantly, part proceeds from sales of this upright hybrid tea go towards the Peter Brock Foundation to support the work of Variety, the children’s charity. A branded racing car is also made available by Knight’s Roses for special events being held by nursery members, enquiries can be directed to Knight’s Roses.
Looking ahead to 2013, the release of the Black Caviar Rose is expected to be a highlight. Featuring a vanilla and jasmine fragrance, the old fashioned rose shares its name with the remarkable mare who captured international attention with her record-breaking winning streak.The partnership with Black Caviar’s owners has been a success on many levels, with royalties being returned to the racing industry to support the National Jockeys Trust. Rose enthusiasts should also stay tuned for the pending launch of the new rose in the Fire Star Series in support of CFA, Victoria’s Country Fire Authority.
In another exciting development, plans are underway for unique packaging for each of our new release roses sold and point of sale in 2013. We hope you enjoy browsing the new look website as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to you. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with enquiries.
