Roses

Rose Plants or Bushes, Standard Roses and Climbing roses are readily available for sale and can be purchased online by mail order in all states.

When to buy

The best time to buy mail order roses is during the winter months when bushes are dormant. Rose Bushes are dispatched as bare root plants and should be planted immediately on arrival. You can also buy potted roses year round, many gardeners like to start a collection, by looking at the 'real thing' and this works well. However for the widest selection of both old and new roses, and often the best price, buying online from specialist nurseries and growers is easy and convenient.

Planting Roses

  • Amend the soil if required before planting, dig in lots of well rotted compost, and make sure that the soil is well drained.

  • New rose bushes should be staked to prevent wind damage and maintain an upright growth habit.

  • Water in well with a liquid seaweed solution to help with strong root growth

When buying rose bushes online

  • Remember that most plants for sale are usually sent by mail as bare rooted plants. Soil is removed and the roots of the rose bush are wrapped in a moisture retentive material.

  • Rose Bushes for sale by mail should be unpacked and planted as soon as they arrive.

  • All plants for sale by mail should be in excellent condition when they arrive if properly packed.
