Roses

Although often cited as the UK's most loved garden flower, the rose has a wrong reputation for being difficult to cultivate. However, by choosing the proven varietoies, and thanks to major advances in the breeding of rose bushes over the last two decades, new cultivars have been developed that are not only repeat-flowering from May onwards but also resistant to many of the common diseases that used to affect them, and best of all, produce superb fragrances. Our range has been chosen with this ease of growing and all round flower power, scent and sheer garden performance in mind - many of our roses have been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit too.

You Garden supply a simple range of garden roses to suit every taste and situation. There are thousands of varieites available, but we have picked the best proven garden winners and performers in each category, so you will get the best results. Most of our roses are sold in Winter as dormant "bare root" bushes - "Bare root" is the traditional supply method for roses, offering lower prices and ease of shipping, and is sued by all rose specialists. We then follow on with potted roses form May throughout Summer - the same rose bushes, but we have potted and grown them on, so they cost a little more, but give instant impact.

Our rose bushes are grown by the UK's laregst rose grower in the fine soils of East Anglia. and are of guaranteed fresh stock and Grade I quality. Our "bare root" roses are lifted them from the fields in the Autumn when they become dormant, we then store them in a cool store environment until delivery, ensuring optimum conditions for keeping them. They can be planted any time between October, when they may put on a bit of new root before Winter sets in, right through til April., when they quickly burst to life in warm Springs, but need to kept well watered.
