The traditional time for planting roses is November through to March, as this is the dormant season for the bushes. The best selection of varieties is available at this time as the new rose stock has just been lifted from the fields.

The life of a Rose begins in Feb/March when it is planted as a Briar in our fields. After growing on for a few months it reaches the ideal budding size as demonstrated by our picture above. That may well be the oldest “budding hands” left in Scotland. June is the Month that this procedure takes place. More growing time is allowed until March the following year when the briar is removed and the new fresh growth turns into a quality rose. This crop is then lifted and sold as Bare-Root bushes in November.

Orders for Bare-Root Roses are taken from June onwards but we do not distribute until November. Customers are welcome at our Nursery to collect, or for non locals we despatch by post or deliver with our own transport.

Viewing of our Rose field is best in July to enjoy the full bloom.

PLEASE NOTE: We will continue to update this page giving full colour illustrations

November - March

Patio Rose
Ideal for a smaller garden, patio planters or rockery this lower compact plant will grow happily giving an amazing profusion of Summer colour.

Hybrid Tea
Remain the most popular type of rose for planting in borders or cut out beds. With its larger heads and often fragrant flowers they will give a beautiful display in any garden.

Carry clusters of flowers on a single stem therefore one bush produces a mass of colour, planting grouped together gives a fantastic display.

Climbing & Rambling
Climbers will continuously flower throughout the summer, training of side shoots outwards will maximise flowering. Ramblers are more vigorous producing clusters of flowers and covering large areas.

Shrub & Ground Cover
Shrub roses are often vigorous in habit and others smaller and more compact. They can be used as hedging or as specimen planting. Ground cover as with Shrub roses can vary in height and spread so select with care.

Standard Rose
A rose bush on a stem it can be Hybrid Tea, Floribunda, Patio or Shrub Rose therefore above descriptions apply but with height.
