Pots and Packaging
Larger pots (2L and above) are wrapped in waxed paper and then attached to a cardboard base so they stay stable in the box. The waxed paper prevents the compost from spilling out and gives the base some added protection from damp compost. For large numbers of plants, pallets may be used for shipping.

The nursery will ensure the plant is moist while it's waiting to be picked up. Our quality control team waters the plant before packing them where necessary to make sure that the plant is suitably watered for transport. Plants with long delicate stems are secured with canes to prevent damage.

Plant on Arrival
Typically plants are delivered ready to plant and will take some time to settle, grow and look more like the product image above.

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.
