Here is another picture of my Dark Desire roses. The plants are small and in 1 gal. pots. I have about a dozen more this size.
Even this small, they are making large blooms. In the pot to your right is a pair of white handled scissors. I used it to prop up the heavy bloom. If you can find it, you can use it to judge the bloom size.
Along with this dozen+ plants, I have 2 large plants in 5 gal. buckets. So, I am going to have lots and lots of blooms.
I went out this evening after a good rain. There was a blanket if rose petals on the ground. That put me to thinking.
A little later on in the season, I'm going to be able to go out and pickup at least a peck bucket of petals from this highly perfumed rose.
Here's my question. I want to do something I've never done before. I want to make rose water. Yeah, I could google this, but if Y'all have any tips or suggestions or maybe some personal experience at making rose water, I would love to hear them. What say ye?
You know, I've read this stuff is wonderful to keep in a spray bottle in the refrigerator to use as a nice pick me up on hot summer days when you feel all wilted.
You're darn tootin' I would! Not if I were going out anywhere, mind you. But around the house? Absolutely.
Saving rose petals. Now how frugal is that?
There are several method. The most fragrant one uses water,
Witch Hazel and rose petals.
I will check out the link. Maybe they have different methods and formulas as I always thought witch hazel To have a medicinal scent. But who knows. When mixed with rose and in the proper amount. it may smell delicious.
Can you tell me how to make rose water at home?
