How you will receive your plants:

Your bare root roses will arrive at your door at the right time for planting in autumn or into winter. Unpack them straight away and plant as soon as possible after delivery.

Your bare root roses will be sent out with full planting and care instructions.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you can’t plant right away, keep the roots buried under soil in cool, moist soil and lay the stems on a dry, hessian sack. We recommended you aim to plant them within seven days.

Planting tips and hints:

Before planting bare root roses, soak the roots in a bucket of cold water for a couple of hours to rehydrate them.

Plant roses into good garden soil that has been well dug and weeded; improve poor soil with compost.

Use a shovel to dig a hole wide enough to take the roots of the rose without cramping. Position the rose centrally in the planting hole with the bump on the stem (the graft union) level with the soil surface.

Backfill with soil to cover the rose’s roots, firm in gently and water well. Add a fertiliser to the soil when backfilling.

Feeding and aftercare:

Prune bush roses to shape in early spring.

Feed with a high potash feed such as Sulphate of Potash in late spring.

Deadhead spent flowers as they fade to prolong the display.

Tie climbing roses in to strong supports as they grow.
