- About Motor City Botanicals -
How we grow our roses!
Being in Michigan, the seasons are the boss. Motor City Botanicals produces and maintains our own rose plants both outdoors during the spring and summer seasons and inside hydroponically during the late fall and winter seasons. The rose bush is a very productive plant. Roses continue to bloom and produce rose buds for a few weeks which means picking daily is necessary.
Picking roses is done solely by hand and is truly a labor of love for us. To get the highest quality rose oil, timing is essential. The roses have to be picked before the sunrise if they are outdoors, and in between light cycles if planted inside. The sun and /or the bright lights will evaporate the precious flowers’ oil. Picking and processing the petals takes place quickly to preserve the beneficial products of the rose.
