Roses have been grown for thousands of years and are the most popular plant to grow around the world. There are over 100,000 different varieties propagated. They come in many different colours, shapes, styles, fragrances and growth habits.

Our roses are grown in the ground, then dug and potted straight away using premium quality potting mix. They are not bagged or left in cold storage, but potted to ensure better root growth and this eases the stress when transplanting. For planting information see Top Tips for Growing Roses.

We have roses AVAILABLE NOW. The varieties on offer are listed below or come into the nursery and take a look. Just a reminder that some varieties sell out quickly, so for the biggest range, plan to buy your roses in winter or early spring.

STANDARD ROSES

Standard roses are roses that are specially grafted at the top of a standard length rootstock. This provides a ball of foliage and an abundance of flowers on top of a straight stem. The elevated growth and formal appearance is very eye-catching. Whether mass planted along side a pathway or driveway, potted on either side of an entrance, or planted in a row behind a small hedge, standard roses always look great.

We grow our standard roses in two sizes. Our tallest are approximately 90cm high and grown in a 250mm pot. Our patio standards are approximately 70cm high and grown in a 200mm pot.
