Roses

Wide range of Standard & Patio RosesClick to skip to:

Generally, we keep in stock roses which make the perfect gift for silver, golden, ruby anniversary gifts or any special occasion. See our list here Weddings, Anniversaries and In Memorium

Our wide range of roses includes climbers, ramblers, floribunda, hybrid tea, patio, shrub and standards and we have a particularly good selection of repeat flowering scented shrub roses.  Our stock includes a good selection of Bentley West and Paul Chessum.  Unfortunately,  David Austen has withdrawn all of their roses from general sale and are only propagating and distributing them themselves.  This means we shall be missing a few old stalwarts in the shrub section, but there are thousands of roses out there to choose from and we are working hard to make sure we have a good selection for you.

We buy all our roses bare root in November and put them in large pots in our special rich compost mix so we know they will get off to a good start.  To see the list of roses that we have in stock at the beginning of the season, please see the list below; this does not, however, guarantee availability. If you are looking for something particular, do ask – we might be able to help. Call us on 01225 862 392 or email us.

Climbing And Rambling Roses

Climbing v Rambling: Climbing roses form a frame and you prune back to the frame each year;
Ramblers scramble over a fence or pergola and you prune by taking out whole old stems, leaving the new growth to take over.
