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. Good cultivation in virgin soil, strict grading and minimal storage ensure that they arrive in the best possible condition. 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.

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.

We hope our new website helps and inspires you to discover more about our unique collection. The new search options and enhanced format should make finding the right rose from over 500 different varieties much easier.

Happy gardening.

Last Order Dates For Christmas/Jobs for December

We know that roses can makes excellent gifts for family and friends. If you are wanting to send/receive roses as a Christmas gift this year then you will need to order before 17th December to guarantee delivery before Christmas. Orders placed after this date will be despatched early in the New Year. December is still a good month to plant bare root roses as long a the ground is not frozen or water- logged. Good soil preparation is key to producing healthy and productive plants in the future so add plenty of well- rotted manure, garden compost or soil conditioner prior to planting. If you have existing roses clear up any fallen leaves to prevent the spread of fungal spores during the coming season. It is also worth picking off any diseased leaves that haven't dropped yet. Bin these leaves do not put on your compost heap. Some initial pruning of shrub and tall bush roses can be undertaken. Cut out any dead, diseased or  damaged wood  then trim back any really long stems to prevent wind rock. Check over climbing roses to make sure they are tied to their supports well. Tie in any new long shoots that might get damaged in the wind. We are now selling Gold Leaf gloves which we have been using on the nursery for several years. These really are the Rolls Royce of  gardening gloves: hard- wearing and thorn-proof yet comfortable and flexible. So if you are looking for an extra special gift for someone (or even yourself) these are a great idea.

They can also be kept in their sealed packages for up to a week if necessary, making sure to water well once opened.
