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.

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.

Preparing the ground for Bare Root Roses

As the bare root season is fast approaching now is the perfect time to prepare your ground for planting. We suggest doing this at least a month before your bare root roses arrive, although at short notice, the use of Rootgrow products such as mycorrhizal fungi may be used on the actual day of planting. First remove any weeds at least 50cm around intended hole and work the soil by double digging. To do this, temporily remove the first layer of soil (depth of a spade head). Then fork over the bottom layer, mixing in some fertilisers or organic material to improve root growth. For roses, phosphorus rich feeds such as bonemeal would be ideal. If you have chalky soil, its important to add a good amount of organic matter such as leaf mold, composted pine needles or well-rotted manure to balance out the PH. Backfill the top layer over to finish. If the final destination for your rose is a pot then size does matter. Roses like to have deep roots so the taller the pot the better. A minimum depth of 40-45cm by 40cm wide is needed for shrub roses. We would not advise planting very rampant climbers or ramblers in pots, but a 1m x 1meter sized container would be needed for climbing varieties that grow below 10 feet tall. The use of a soil based compost is essential to help hold onto nutrients, so multipurpose compost on its own will not be enough. A mix of 50 percent John Innes No.3 and 50 percent multipurpose will help them thrive. A 2cm layer of gravel or crocks in the bottom can also aid drainage. Remember the longer the roses have to develop their roots during their dormant months, the better chance of them performing at their best next summer. We hope you have a happy bare root season. For further reference: Planting and Pruning Guide Root Care Products Page includes fertilisers for planting. Vitax Organic Bonemeal is used for helping establish plants root systems.

Comte de Chambord – An intriguing rose

Comte de Chambord - An intriguing rose. Of all the old roses Comte de Chambord undoubtedly ranks as one of the best. Classed as a Portland Damask it is a tidy, well-foliated, upright shrub with an eventual height of 3-4 ft. The blooms exude a strong sweet fragrance and sit upon the leaves in small clusters. High-centred scrolled buds develop into full cupped, quartered blooms and finally reflex to reveal a boss of yellow stamens. The colour ranges from deep pink at the centre to a paler pink perimeter. It is also reliably repeat flowering. Such assets make them useful for growing both individually or en masse in the border, making a low hedge or as a pot grown specimen. It has been given an Award of Garden Merit from the RHS. Although generally regarded as the creation of french breeder Moreau-Robert of France in 1863 there are some other theories being mooted. One is that it was bred by Daniel Boll of New York and sent to France where Moreau-Robert unscrupulously rechristened it as his own. Another suggests it was bred by a french supplier of Bolls called Joseph Boyau of Angers and introduced it as Mme Boll in the U.S. Most are of the opinion that Comte de Chambord and Mme. Boll are one and the same. Mme. Boll was the wife of Daniel Boll herself a keen rosarian and Comte de Chambord was Prince Henri who laid claim to title King of France from 1844 until his death in 1883. Others uphold that Mme. Knorr bred by Victor Verdier in 1855 is also the same. It seems that everyone wanted to lay claim to this superb rose! More recently David Austin has used it as a pollen parent to breed some of his most iconic varieties including Gertrude Jekyll and The Countryman.
