Roses

Roses are supplied in 4 litre pots
In late autumn to early spring they can be sold as ‘bare root’.
Roses are £12.00 each + post & packing.

It is more expensive for Roses if sold in pots because of the weight of the pot, compost and rose. This is not to put you off it is being honest about the weight and costs. In our local area Roses can be delivered. See Post & packing information
One customer said the price of the rose and post and packing was perfectly acceptable as she had wanted this rose for a long time. Another customer said he thought £18.00 to spend as a gift for his mum more than reasonable

Roses require an enriched soil. Give a good dollop of compost or well-rotted manure at planting time. Water the hole, water the pot they come in and water after planting. Give ‘Climbers’ a good watering weekly for a few months in the year that you buy them. Roses are tree-like, woody and will thrive after a good start and should last for about 50 years. Take off dead flowers to encourage continuous blooming.

Aftercare

If you are unable to plant out potted roses immediately after delivery, put the pot outside, somewhere where you can see it, to remind yourself to plant into a larger pot or the ground.
Dig a hole large enough to spread out the roots. Back fill with a mixture of mud, well rotted manure or compost. And give a mulch after planting around the base, on top of the soil.
When planting climbers plant at least 40cm away from the post, fence or wall.
At the top of the roots and below the branches/stems there is a ‘knobbly’ bit.
Which is the graft/scion. Pot up to the graft/scion or cover the roots to the graft/scion. Do not bury or cover the graft/scion.
If buying in the spring just as the rose is waking up give plenty of water and in warmer months water liberally until your rose settles.
All roses can be grown in pots. Choose as big a pot as possible. Each year renew the compost. And remember they cannot draw up water so give plenty of water in spring and hot weather.

Every year from late autumn until early March cut/prune back your roses (not climbers) branches/stems/twigs to 15cm. Clear away any debris branches, stems, twigs leaves etc.
Cutting back will give your roses a good start next spring, cutting/pruning back encourages more branches/stems, so more flowers.
Climbers may also be cut/pruned back at the same time of the year but you only need to cut out dead stems, crossing/rubbing stems or awkward growing stems. Generally a light pruning each year to help shape your climber the way you want it to grow.
