How to Buy
You can buy roses from us in several different ways throughout the year:
BareRoot Roses (Supplied November to March):
These are field lifted roses supplied only from November to end of March. This is the traditional and cheapest way of buying roses from us and we can send both Standards and bush roses to you in this way to you by mail order, or you can collect by arrangement from our Holbeach Nursery or the Garden Shows we attend, they are the same high quality plants that we also supply in pots and will flower as normal by the summer after planting and reach their normal height by the end of the same year.

Containerised/Potted Roses (All Year):
These are potted roses, every rose for potting is carefully selected and hand pruned before planting into our own specially formulated loam based rose compost containing all the goodness your rose will need to see it through its first year, we supply potted roses all year round, often customers like to buy them potted and give them as gifts, so the recipient then has plenty of time to think about where to plant the rose and prepare the ground well, or you may just want to bring them on yourself in pots until fully rooted and in full leaf before transferring into their final position which will give them a flying start and enhance early flowering . Please note bare-root roses will grow just as well as potted! MAIL ORDER: we can send all Bush roses (including Climbers and Ramblers) to you by mail order all year round, unfortunately we are not able to send Potted Standard roses by mail order but these can be collected by arrangement from our nursery or at one of the many Garden Shows we attend from Spring to Autumn. (Standard Roses can only be sent mail order as bare-root roses see above). COLLECTED: You can buy potted Standard and Bush Roses from us all year round and bare-root roses late October to March by pre-ordering and collecting from our office or nursery in Holbeach, South Lincolnshire or from the many Garden Shows we attend (see Homepage).
