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.

Bliss - Winner of Silver Medal and the Tollcross Fragrance Award. Glasgow 2018 Sombreuil- A climbing rose that has an intense display of blooms this September. After a such a hot summer this year some of you may be looking forward to the cooler nights this September. Roses can be magnificent at this time and with the chillier temperatures they reward us with blooms that are often more intense and longer lived than their summer counterparts. With bare root rose season nearly upon us now is the perfect time to start preparing garden beds for any new arrivals. Begin by finding an ideal spot, bearing in mind it's hardiness, shade tolerance and ultimate size. Double dig the area, adding organic matter such as well rotted farmyard manure or garden compost into the top spit (30cm deep), and then cover back with soil. This should make perfect planting conditions for November. As for us we have just returned from another fantastic Rose Trials and award ceremony in Glasgow. Glasgow City Council are always such generous hosts with a gala dinner at The Winter Palace and award ceremony in the fantastic City Chambers that the judging is a real pleasure. Our personal favourite was 'Bliss' a heady perfumed rose by breeder Kordes. We definitely hope to add this to Our collection of Kordes Roses in the near future.
