Welcome to the online store of
Trevor White Roses

Specialist Growers of Roses Ancient & Modern

We have been growing roses in Norfolk since 1984 and take great pride in producing quality plants. Old Roses are our special passion, yet we love roses of all persuasions and stock many beautiful Species, Shrub, Climbing and Rambling Roses, both modern and old. Our aim is to offer a range that fully embodies the sheer diversity that roses can bring to your garden. Fragrance, foliage, fruit and flower come in a multitude of variations and permutations that provides a rose for virtually every situation.

Most of our roses can be purchased bare root (dormant) for delivery from November until March, in addition we also offer a selection that can be bought potted in peat-free compost which are available throughout the year. Good cultivation in virgin soil, strict grading and minimal storage ensure that they arrive in the best possible condition.

We hope our new website helps and inspires you to discover more about our unique collection. The new filter options and enhanced format should make finding the right rose from over 500 different varieties much easier. See our ‘ALL CATEGORIES’ page for our full list of subcategories such as Hedging Roses, Shade Tolerant Roses & Old Roses Groups.

Happy gardening.

FEATURED ROSE

ROSE DE RESCHT
A cute repeat flowering damask rose with a deep musky fragrance. It has a tidy upright habit and its mid-green foliage make it great choice to use in a mixed herbaceous border. Its colour often matches well with purples and blues such as Lavender and Delphiniums.

Rambling Roses

Ramblers are often seen as easier to grow than their cousins ‘Climbing Roses’, they can be left to do there own thing and essentially ramble away as their name suggests. Pruning can be kept to a minimum. The majority are Summer Flowering only, with a special few that can repeat. Most are often highly scented and flower in large trusses of blooms. They often look pretty on archways over doors of buildings, given they have plenty of space.

Mme. Alfred Carriere Short History

Full Description and Brief History. Mme Alfred Carriere is a sweetly scented old Noisette rose.It is still one of the most popular white climbing roses.Its perpetual display of large double blush white blooms have a buff yellow to the base of the petal.The flower is ruffled at the edge which makes it very pleasing to the eye. The foliage is a fresh pale green and the health and vigour of the rose is excellent.The stems are pliable which makes them easy to train to a fence, pergola or wall. It can be planted in any aspect from full sun to shade and if planted in good soil can reach a height of over 4 metres. It was bred in France by Joseph Schwartz and was described as worthless when it was first released on to the market in 1879 however in 1908 it was proclaimed to be the best white climbing rose by the National Rose Society. He then had to wait until 1993 to get an Award of Garden Merit from the R.H.S. Schwartz died at just 39 and sadly was unable to see his most outstanding rose reach its glory. It is now a popular favourite among cottage gardeners and recommended by the likes of BBC Gardener's World and Radio 4's GQT panel.

Bare Essentials

Bare Essentials Trevor explains his love for bare rose stems Before the seccateurs come out in Spring there is the chance to appreciate a rose stripped back to its bare essentials, basically just stems and prickles. Without its leaves and flowers this might not seem particularly exciting but for me there is still much to be admired in the amazing diversity of colour and armament. You will have to steer yourselves away from more modern hybrids (as these do tend to appear all pretty much alike) and venture into the realms of older and wilder varieties. In the photograph I gathered together just a small collection of stems from our rose field just to highlight this. Stems can come in every possible shade of green but the ghostly hues of Rosa soulieana and its hybrids really stand out. Away from green there are pale browns (rugosas), russetts and even mahogany (Canary Bird) and red (Amadis). The overall finish can be either matt, gloss or even flakey as in the case of Rosa roxburghii. In the recent past the word 'thorn' has been highjacked and we must now use prickle to denote the armour of roses. Not top of the list of endearing features for many, but again they can offer a further dimension, not just aesthetically but also for their deterrant properties. From the completely naked Bousault roses (eg Amadis, Morletii and Mme. Sancy de Parabere) to the Stegasaurus-like appendages of Rosa sericea 'Pteracantha' there is a vast array of sizes shapes and configurations. Personally I just love the stems of 'Moussu du Japon' , more hairy caterpiller than rose. There is always more to a rose than just a pretty face, sometimes its sheer naked attraction. Varieties in photo top to bottom: Hansa Rosa sericea 'Pteracantha' Moussu du Japon Nevada Rosa foetida 'Bicolor' Rosa woodsii 'Fendleri' Canary Bird Rosa suffulta Rosa pimpinellifolia 'Dunwich Rose' Hebes Lip Rosa x kochiana Rosa farreri 'Persetosa' Amadis Rosa roxburghii Aglaia Rosa stellata 'Mirifica' Rosa gallica Susan Rosa soulieana
