Roses

Roses have been a favourite of gardeners for centuries. Known for their heavenly fragrance, hardy nature and opulent, heady blooms, they are jewels of the garden. Winter is the ideal season to purchase roses for two reasons -  As with all bare-root products, they are simply better value. And, if planted in winter or early spring, while they slumber in dormancy, bare-root plants will establish quicker and flourish earlier than potted roses. There is a rose for every purpose, from decadent David Austins, destined for the vase, to dependable old-world heirloom varieties with delicate scent to hard-working hedging and climbing roses.
