Roses


The choice of Roses is mind boggling but who can resist them. Their range of colour and habit is stunning and then there is their glorious perfume.

Roses can be put "roughly" into four categories.

Bush Roses
This section includes the Hybrid Teas and Floribundas in bush and standard form, mostly growing in the range of 60-90cm with double flowers. Varieties include Grandpa Dickson, Ruby Wedding and Peace.

Shrub Roses
This section includes many of the David Austin Roses and the hybrids and forms of Rosa rugosa. They will grow in the range of one metre upwards and are less formal than the bush roses. Varieties include Ballerina, Rhapsody in Blue and Graham Thomas.

Ramblers are the more vigorous and have softer stems than the climbers. They will grow from three metres upwards. Varieties include Francois Juranville, Pink Perpetue and Paul's Scarlet.

Patio and Miniature Roses
in which we are also putting the Flower Carpet varieties. These are ideal for containers and the smaller garden but are mainly unscented. Varieties include Honeybunch, Pretty Polly and Sweet Memories.

Roses often make ideal gifts as there are appropriate names for most occasions and we usually have a selection of these in stock but we are happy to source a rose for you if it is one in our supplier's range. We stock David Austin roses and buy from two other growers one being the Scottish rose grower R.C. Ferguson.
