Roses and lavender

I visited the Chelsea flower show last week, and I was amazed by the displays, and always puzzled, how do they manage to get all their roses and lavender to flower just for that week, the timing must be something of a nightmare...last week my roses were all in buds but nowhere close to a proper bloom, and with one day of sunshine they all blossomed.Are they putting them back in the fridge if the weather gets too hot ?
Only in this kind of show you can see tulips and roses in bloom together. In my garden I always get a kind of a break between tulips and roses, everything green, but no flowers to be seen...
If you want to see some more pictures of the chelsea flower show, my mother blogged about it there.
