Welcome to the new online store of Trevor White Roses | Old Rose Specialists

We have been growing roses here 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, but 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, but we love roses of all persuasions and stock many beautiful Species, Shrub, Modern, Climbing and Rambling Roses. Our aim has simply been 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.

Rambling Rose: Adelaide d’Orleans

The tentative first shoots of snowdrops this week are a timely reminder that Spring will soon be upon us. Take the opportunity of the next few months to plant bare root roses to reap their splendours later in the year (see below) . Bare root plants are the most economical way to add trees and shrubs to your garden so spring into action like the snowdrop before it is too late. Adelaide d’Orleans covering an arch at Mottisfont. Adelaide d’Orleans is a very useful and beautiful rambler dating from 1826. Bred by Antoine Jacques head gardener to king Louis Phillipe it was named in honour of his twin sister. The clusters of fragrant white blooms emerge from pink buds . The stems are very flexible making them very easy to train over a variety of structures. Recent analysis has shown this to be a hybrid of Rosa sempervirens and Old Blush. Close up of Adelaide d’Orleans.
