|Front Border & Patio||
For sheer numbers of flowers and long periods of bloom, Patio Roses cannot be beaten. They make both an ideal container roses and are also great at the front of the border or in narrow areas, even for mass planting. Patio roses are a real permanent alternative to summer bedding, simply dead head throughout the summer and prune back hard once a year in winter to encourage new shoots.
Plant bushes 60cm apart, typical flowering height 60cm / 2ft.
Standard Roses 90cm apart minimum, flowering height varies from 90cm to 150cm / 3 to 5ft depending on you choice of a Quarter Standard Rose or a Half Standard Rose, see individual front border / patio varieties for options available.
Many of our Patio varieties are also available as Standard Roses, great for pots or mid border. In terms of colour, numbers of blooms, length of flowering from early summer often until late December Patio Standard Roses cannot be beaten and are a fantastic way to add instant new height and interest to your garden.
Our range of Climbing Roses include very healthy varieties with large flowered blooms, repeat flowering and fragrance. Climbing Roses are ideal for training along fences, walls, pergolas, trellis and structures.Train main shoots sideways and then upwards to create a well-balanced framework of branches and encourage lateral flowering side shoots, prune side shoots to 3" once a year in winter.
Plant 6ft apart, flowering heights vary from 2.1m to 4.5 meters.
Typically it will take climbers 2-3 years to become well established and reach full height.
Rambling Roses are rapid, pliant growers ideal for covering over buildings, high walls, pergolas and for scrambling up trees. Pruning is different to other climbers as flowers are produced on the previous years growth, so prune earlier, straight after the main flush of flower or just leave it to go mad if you dare!
Typical growth for Ramblers is 4.5m to 7.5 meters but vary for each variety.
|Ground Cover Roses||
These repeat blooming Ground Cover Roses can have many uses.
The typical, flat, prostrate growth makes them ideal for covering over large areas, creating weed barriers as well as deterring intruders & animals from your property.The pliant growth makes them great in pots and hanging baskets to give a superb cascading effect of colour.
For hanging baskets, we recommend a 35cm diameter basket with a plastic liner and strong chains, using a John Innes No3 Compost.
Approximate flowering height of Ground Cover roses 30cm to 90cm, and plant 90cm apart.
When Ground Cover varieties are grafted onto Standard stems, they produce excellent Weeping Standards. As growth develops and ages, blooms cascade all the way down the length of the stem, producing really exquisite results. To find Weeping Roses, use the 'Search' tool or search by type, selecting Standard Roses.
|David Austin, Shrub & Delbard Roses||
Our range of English (David Austin Roses), Delbard (French Breeder) & Shrub roses are mainly modern introductions, where old-fashioned beauty and charm are coupled with health and heady fragrance, which repeat bloom all summer long. The varieties selected are proven performers and offer a wide choice of colours and unusual stripes and represent excellent value and savings in comparison to Garden Centre prices.
Plant 1.2 metres apart allowing plenty of room or grow amongst tall herbaceous plants. Some English roses can also be grown as a short climbing rose if desired.
We are delighted to also include in our ranges of roses, a collection of Wonderful roses bred by the Famous French Rose Breeders, Meilland Roses and Delbard Roses, we have chosen an exciting range of roses which are of great interest, unique in many ways and most are exclusive to Style Roses in the United Kingdom. All are excellent growers and will repeat bloom throughout summer and autumn and well worth a try in the gardens of Great Britain.
Standard Roses look great in containers by the front door, on the patio, or in borders, lining a drive or as a spectacular centerpiece in a round bed using a group of Standards or a Weeping Standard.
Typical flowering height is around 4 to 5ft/1.2-1.5m for Half-Standards and 6ft/1.8m for Full-Weeping Standards, adding height and a strong focal feature to your garden, allowing you to look, smell, tend and cut your roses without straining your back! In all cases of planting Standard Roses we strongly recommend you use a strong stake and tie fixed on the north side of the stem to support the main stem as wind damage will otherwise occur and may result in the main stem being completely snapped without. We offer a top quality, sturdy pressure treated wooden stake (for long life) with our Standard roses supplied with your order at £4.00 each, details will be given in the checkout area.

|Edward Smith Rose Collection||
It is with great pleasure that we proudly introduce the Edward Smith Rose Collection to our catalogue. Edward Smith, rose breeder of Sandiacre, Nottingham sadly died in 2008, leaving a legacy of beautiful roses and seedlings. We are delighted to be working directly with Edward's family, in bringing these wonderful roses to the attention of all rose lovers so far successfully introducing The Coventry Cathedral Rose (with every sale a donation of £2 goes to the Cathedral), Edward's Rose, Bride & Groom, Golden Moment, Truly Scrumptious, Bobby Dazzler, Loving Mum, Orange Blossom Special, Perfect Pet and Show Star.

resistance to disease which won him awards both at home and
internationally, we are pleased to also include some of his previous
varieties in this collection, all of which are still performing superbly
today and we look forward to introducing many more of his fabulous
varieties to you in coming years
|New Zealand Roses||
It is with true excitement and great pleasure that we introduce a completely new exclusive and fabulous range of New Zealand Roses bred mainly by John Ford of Ford Roses in Palmerston North and the late great Nola Simpson, who over recent decades have introduced many unique and new coloured roses never seen before in the rose world, including the original Hot Chocolate rose and many other noted brown and unusual varieties. One of the main criteria in Nola and John's breeding programme was a very high tolerance to withstand the highly varied and wet climatic conditions of New Zealand with priority given to good petal texture to withstand the heavy rainfall without damage and very few of their introductions suffer with blooms rotting from heavy rain or damp conditions.
The range of roses offered in this new collection are completely exclusive to Style Roses both in the UK and Europe, having carefully trialled them for two years, we continue to be completely blown away by their colours and fragrance. They all clearly love the British climate and seem to be romping away with health and vigour in our rose fields and also are performing perfectly as container plants, we highly recommend these roses which will only amaze you and look forward to introducing even more unusual roses from New Zealand to you in the coming years.
|Rose Of The Year||
The Rose of the Year award was introduced in 1982 with an aim to discover and trial new varieties each year.
The new varieties are entered into a two year trial period where they are grown in areas throughout the UK, using different soil types and climates to ensure that the healthiest varieties are grown.
