Where can one get these roses because i have tried many sites online but they don't seem to have the ones mentioned here?

Also how can one get them shipped to a far location and which is the best and faster way to grow them?

Grace Kyeyune~ You live in a tropical climate so I am not sure some of the roses here would do well where you live. I think the best way to find roses that will live in your climate is to contact someone at the Makerere University. In the School of Agricultural Science there is a Horticulture Department and they may be able to tell you what roses grow in your area and where you could purchase them. I hope this helps and please keep us posted about your search. I do think there are roses that can grow in your climate because I know there are roses that grow in the Caribbean which is also tropical. Good luck.

Our tips for rose care

1. Use a rose soil mix

Roses need special care and require a specific kind of organic rose mix. Roses also prefer a pH that is between 6.5 and 7, which is slightly acidic to neutral (7 being neutral).

2. Remember to fertilize them

Roses are hungry plants and need to be fertilized regularly to reach their full blooming potential. A natural based fertilizer with (like 5-5-5) works best.

3. Prune at a 45° angle

By pruning at a 45° angle, you can make sure water runs off the cut instead of collecting there. This helps prevent disease or mold from growing on your rose bushes.

4. Water often and early

Most roses need to be watered daily. Set watering time completion prior to sunrise. Avoid fungal diseases like black spot by using drip irrigation to keep the leaves from getting wet.
