The Rustons story dates back to 1919 when Cuthbert Ruston was allotted the land as part of a soldier settlement program. While the property was originally a fruit orchard David Ruston, one of Cuthbert’s sons, indulged his passion for roses by planting them wherever he could.
By the 1970’s, David had completely converted the property to roses which eventually housed 4,000 species of rose and the National Rose Collection. David Ruston was internationally renowned for his knowledge of roses and contribution to the industry, which includes the birth of the Renmark Rose Festival.
Visitors are always welcome to come and view the gardens, which are currently being redeveloped.
"Don’t forget to always stop and smell the roses!"
Each variety of garden rose is unique in its growth and bloom, making them enticingly beautiful in their own individual ways. From the colours of the petals, right through to the aromas, they each have their own separate charming characteristics that make them stand out.
We do not grow our roses in glasshouses, nor do we import, therefore our roses come with a little extra added character courtesy of Mother Nature. All our roses are grown outside and are 100% pesticide free.
Due to being outside and subjected to various weather elements the outer petals can sometimes become slightly damaged and colour changes of the petals may occur, however this does not take away from the beauty of the rose nor their delightful perfumes, instead complimenting the roses individuality and character.
Our roses have alluring charm right from a tight little bud through to full bloom.
