Bare Root Roses
Bare root roses are dormant plants, which are delivered between November to the start of April. Note any purchases made outside these times will be dispatched the following November. Stems are approximately 6 to 12 inches long and the roots will be bare (without soil). We begin by selecting only first grade roses, which are freshly lifted from the field just prior to dispatch to allow minimal storage. Your roses will arrive in wax-lined waterproof sacks and each rose has its own descriptive colour label. In addition every order will include a booklet: ‘Guide on How to Grow Roses’.
Why choose a bare root rose?
The main reason they are cheaper, and are much easier to transport. Autumn and Winter planting, gives roses plenty of time to establish a good root system, so less time will be spent watering during their first summer. Meanwhile the reduction in plastic used for potting and water consumption means they are greener for our planet. Therefore many professional gardeners prefer bare root plants, over the now ever popular potted rose.
