We grow all our roses in pots, so you can plant them at any time of the year.
Winter, spring, summer and autumn, - anytime is a good time to plant a rose.
We have all kinds of roses:
Roses naturally grow in the form of a bush. The size and shape of the bush depends on the specific variety and can be influenced by the conditions under which it grows.
Most commercially available roses are grafted onto an understock. Bush roses are grafted onto a short understock and standardised forms of roses onto a longer understock.
Roses with a long branching form are often used as climbing roses.
Sometimes the branches are fairly thin as well as long, giving a rambling habit. Others have thicker branches giving a stiffer upright habit. This often, together with the flower characteristics, defines the suitability for a specific climbing purpose.
Although most modern climbing roses are repeat flowering, there are some once a year flowering varieties that are still very popular - usually because of the spectacularity of their show. (Some of these can be very large - the largest shrub in the world is considered to be a white banksia rose growing in America).
Standard roses have an extended stem on which the rose bush grows. This is achieved by grafting a desired variety onto an understock stem of a desired length.
The stem part stays the same length, but the grafted rose part grows. The eventual height depending on the specific variety of rose.
The effects are dramatic, with most of the colour mass occurring higher up.
Weeping standard roses have a tall stem and branches that arch over towards the ground.
They are spectacular features when in flower, often reaching close to the ground with a weeping habit.
Our large range includes new releases, modern and old world/heritage, David Austin and many more.
