The key is to regularly water your newly-planted roses; at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure adequate spacing between bushes, which is determined by a rose's eventual height and spread.

Bare-root and containerised plants have different planting requirements. With bare-root, it is important to soak your plant's roots in water for up to two hours before planting, while with containerised plants, it is crucial to drench their rootball. For bare-root plants, it can be useful to prune woody roots back a few inches, whilst with containerised plants, you should free any spiralized roots growing around the rootball's circumference. When planting bare-root plants, dig a hole so as to ensure the graft point is above the soil. When planting containerised plants, ensure that the pot sits no lower than an inch below the ground.

Bare-root and containerised plants also share planting requirements. Dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball, fill this hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi (ensure that you do not compress the soil). You can then provide your plant with a good watering. Add mulch on top whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould and stones, however, make sure mulch doesn't touch the stem.

Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come Spring, and collect fallen leaves in autumn.

Our Roses are carefully pruned during the colder months to ensure that they benefit from strong, healthy growth in Spring. For that reason, you may find that a Rose arriving early in the year is cut back to around six inches above the ground. Nevertheless, please rest assured that it will burst into life come Spring; growing to 2ft (and more) within the first year.

Later in the year, we will endeavor to dispatch a Rose with several buds, that are almost ready to flower. We ensure this supply by staggering the early pruning to delay flowering. Although not always possible, the majority of customers will receive a plant with flowers that are ready to bloom.

We will wrap the roots of our bare root plants, and use compost to keep them moist during their transportation. This additional degree of protection will mitigate the risks of them drying out, helping ensure a flying start.

Our trusted growers have spent years developing the perfect packaging to protect your Rose. The extra thick, cardboard box has a specially designed clamp that will hold the pot in place at the bottom of the box. This prevents any movement during transit, keeping your plant as safe as possible.

Rose plants are wonderfully easy to grow. Your plant’s growth and output will likely be fine providing you follow our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: Modern Roses are produced from an amalgamation of Rose species; many of which are from far colder regions than the United Kingdom - and are hence fully hardy.
  • Position: A Rose plant will benefit from being planted in full sun. Planting your Rose in a sheltered spot will allow them to leverage more resources into their flowering.
  • Soil Types: Soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Having said that, less than ideal conditions can hinder their growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis; causing their roots to rot, which will hence form the perfect environment for disease. Similarly, compressed soils can starve a plant of oxygen and water, so do not compress the soil when planting. Aeration can be improved further with mulching.
  • Planting in Pots: Patio and miniature Roses will suffice in 40 centimetre pots, whilst compact ground cover and climbing Roses will suffice in 60 centimetre containers. We strongly encourage you to prune your Rose's roots prior to their planting, as this will ensure fibrous growth. Apply mulch and water regularly in the warmer months.
