A gorgeous trio of bush roses, each proudly carrying the 'Rose of the Year' award

Each having been awarded the prestigious 'Rose of the Year' award, these stunning bush rose varieties have been noted for their easy to grow nature, floriferous and colourful flowers, and unique, beautiful fragrances. All attentively grown by our specialist nursery, you will receive:

1 x Rosa 'Rhapsody in Blue' : A bushy floribunda rose, forming tight clusters of purple-blue, semi-double flowers. A hardy shrub, this rose benefits from greater disease resistance than many of the other 'blue' roses, and as such carries the RHS 'Award of Garden Merit'.

1 x Rosa 'Absolutely Fabulous' : A floribunda rose producing clusters of butter yellow, double-flowers, which are accompanied by their dark green foliage. With a neat, bushy habit, this rose is ideal for planting in beds or containers near a path where its delicate fragrance can be best enjoyed. This variety also carries the 'Award of Garden Merit'.

1 x Rosa 'You're Beautiful' : A gorgeous floribunda rose bearing medium sized, vibrant pink blooms that release a delightfully sweet fragrance.

Our roses are carefully pruned during the colder months to ensure that they present strong, healthy growth in spring. For that reason, you may find that a rose that arrives early in the year is cut back to around 6 inches above the ground. Rest assured that it will burst into life come springtime, growing to 2ft (or more) in the first year.

Later in the year, we endeavour to send out a rose with several buds that is just about 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 about to bloom.

We wrap the roots of our bare root plants and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra bit of protection prevents them from drying out and allows them to get off to a flying start.

Our trusted rose grower has spent years developing the perfect packaging to protect your plant. The extra thick, cardboard box has a specially designed clamp to hold the pot in place at the bottom of the box. This prevents any movement during transit, keeping your rose safe and secure.

About your plant

Our roses are carefully pruned during the colder months to help them develop strong, healthy growth in spring. For this reason, you may find that a rose arriving early in the year is cut back to around 6 inches above the ground. Rest assured that they will burst into life come springtime, growing to 2ft (or more) in the first year.

Later in the year, our trusted nursery will endeavour to send out roses with several buds that are almost ready to open. They ensure this by staggering early pruning to delay the flowering period. Although not always possible, the majority of customers will receive a plant with flowers that are about to bloom.

Nursery staff will wrap the roots of bare root plants and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra bit of protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start.

Packaging

Our trusted rose grower has spent years developing the perfect packaging to protect your plant. The extra thick cardboard box has a specially designed clamp to hold the pot in place at the bottom of the box. This prevents any movement during transit, keeping your rose nice and secure as they make their way to your home.

Please note: where your plant is supplied with a pot, your plant's 'Height on Arrival' includes the pot

How your order will arrive
It is important to regularly water your newly-planted rose, at least bimonthly for two months. You should also ensure adequate spacing between bushes, which is determined by a rose's eventual height and spread.

Bare root and containerised roses have differing planting requirements, detailed below:

  • Watering: Bare root roses should have their roots soaked in water for up to 2 hours before planting, while with containerised roses, it is important to drench their root ball before planting.
  • Pruning: Another difference is that for bare root roses, it is useful to prune their woody roots back a few inches. However, for containerised roses, you should free any spiralized roots growing around their rootball's circumference.
  • Planting: With bare root roses, you should dig a hole to enable the graft point to be above the soil, but with containerised roses, the pot should sit no lower than an inch below the ground.
Bare root and containerised roses also share planting requirements, detailed below:

  • With both, you should dig a hole that is twice the radius of their rootball. Stake your roses no more than 2 - 3 inches from the stem, and make sure that they are pointing away from the prevailing wind.
  • Fill the planting hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, finishing with fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Take care to not compress the soil.
  • Provide your rose with a generous watering.
  • Add mulch on top (this can be bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould, and stones), and ensure that these do not touch the stem of your rose.
  • Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come spring.

Advice on hot and droopy plants

If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.

Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.

Roses are wonderfully easy to grow. Their growth and output will likely be excellent providing you follow our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common query topics:

  • Hardiness: Modern roses are produced from an amalgamation of a rose species, and many of which are accustomed to conditions colder than the UK’s.
  • Position: Roses benefit from being planted in full sun. Planting your rose in a sheltered spot will also allow them to put greater resources into their flowering display.
  • Soil: Soil types can be an unwelcome confusion as many plants will adapt to their conditions. Nonetheless, less than ideal conditions will certainly limit your rose’s growth. Waterlogged soils will starve them of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis; causing their roots to rot and creating an optimal environment for disease.
  • Pots: Patio and miniature roses work well in 40cm pots, while compact and climbing roses are better suited to 60cm containers. You should prune your rose's roots before planting to encourage fibrous growth, and apply mulch and water frequently during the warmer months.
