Voted as Britain's favourite flower, roses certainly need no introduction, and there's definitely no other plant quite like them. With a range of flowers, scents, habit and form, there's a rose for every situation in your garden, and a type for every gardener, no matter what your experience or style.
Available as groundcover, bushes, climbers or even standards to add a touch of elegance on your patio in the summer, you can buy your roses as bare-root plants for immediate planting or as potted plants for giving as a gift - there are so many options for you – and we’ve got a whole range of rose-related gardening sundries to make it easy for you to care for them.
Don't be put off by their 'reputation' as being a bit of a garden diva either, they're a lot easier to care for than you think - just mulch them in early spring, feed them twice a year for heaps of blooms, dead-head as necessary and prune them to keep a tidy shape and you're there! So, go on, have a look at our roses and see what they can bring to your garden.
With the exception of the rose, shrubs are quite possibly the most underrated of garden plants, and yet probably the hardest working of them all! Forming the backbone of any design plan, shrubs are there whatever the weather, providing structure and interest in every season. There's a shrub for every situation and every garden, meaning that even if you've only got a patio, there will be a specimen that will work its magic for you.
From evergreens to deciduous, they provide flowers, foliage and stems - so pick the right one and you can have a kaleidoscope of colour all-year round. You can choose to have scented flowers for spring, foliage for summer and of course the glorious autumn fanfare of shades as they fall. Then in the winter when not much else is stirring in the garden, their branches provide structure and interest, often from magically coloured and textured bark.
Most importantly, garden shrubs are among the most low-maintenance, trouble free and easy planting options for your garden. Give them a prime position as a focal plant of mix them up in borders and they'll go to work for you, weaving their magic to tie everything together - and of course wildlife will thrive around them as they provide food and shelter for a whole host of insects, birds and mammals.
We've got a huge range of affordable, high quality shrubs, supplied as either bare-root varieties, established, potted starter plants, and even instant impact plants to give you the option that best suits your time and your pocket!
