For our MyTree Story this June, we spoke to Linda. Unfortunately, Linda lost her father 9 years ago. Last June would have been her parent's 60th wedding anniversary, an outstanding landmark in any marriage. Understandably, Linda wanted a gift that would both celebrate the occasion for her mum and commemorate the life of her dad.
Initially, Linda was unsure what gift would fulfil such an important occasion. Her friends thought a tree or plant would be the perfect option. Linda agreed and soon found our site, more specifically, she found our Diamond 60th Wedding Anniversary Rose Bush Gift. The perfect match; it both honoured the memory of her late father and celebrated their special anniversary.
June is the month where the rose bushes really come into their own. The blooms will start flourishing, providing colour and fragrance throughout the summer. This makes them extra special for a memorial or an anniversary gift. Looking upon the blooms every year is a wonderful reminder of happy memories lived over the years.
Linda’s mum absolutely loved the gift. She was delighted to see the gift arrive fully gift wrapped and straight to her door. They took some photos of the rose bush before placing it out in the garden to bask in the summer sun. Since then, they have planted the rose bush into a pot which sits out on their patio for them to look at every day.
Last year, they enjoyed the blooms all summer long and after the flowering period was done they deadheaded and pruned the plant so that it would be ready again for this year. The rose bush is now showing signs of new growth for the spring and they are excited for the plant to bloom again this summer.
Whether you are looking for a gift for a memorial or an anniversary, they both deserve a long lasting and meaningful gift to acknowledge the occasion. A rose bush is a perfect option, it’s compact and easy to look after but will still provide colour, fragrance and, most importantly, joy for many years to come. The Diamond 60th Wedding Rose is of the floribunda variety and produces crisp white blooms with a slight scent. It can be planted in a pot for the patio or out in the garden making it suitable for any garden size.
Our rose bushes are all high quality, hardy plants and grown right here in England meaning they thrive in our UK gardens. Upon ordering, the plants are hand selected and gift wrapped ready for delivery. A personalised greetings card can be added to the order with a choice of message.
Linda left us this lovely review on Reviews.co.uk:
“It would have been my parents 60th wedding anniversary in June. Although my father is no longer alive I wanted to show my mum that I was still thinking of both of them on what should have been their special day and she absolutely loves it.”
