Plant bareroot roses at the earliest opportunity following delivery. To avoid the risk from the build-up of harmful soil organisms and disease, choose an open position in full sun that has not been planted with roses in recent years. Roses enjoy a rich, fertile, well drained soil. Dig in plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting roses and add a small handful of granular fertiliser to the planting hole.
Feed and water rose plants regularly and deadhead faded flowers. When growing roses it is necessary to remove any suckers that arise from the base of the plant, below the graft union. In winter, begin pruning floribunda roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then reduce the stems to 20cm (10") above ground level. Side shoots should be reduced to two buds. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.

Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above.

  1. Blue for me

    By Nick Catahan 02-07-2014

    Saddened to find both my rose purchases were non-starters despite all the right conditions. I wonder if anybody else had the same issue with batches delivered this spring? I'm awaiting feedbac from T&M :-(

  2. Definitely different

    By Katherine Melia 11-07-2013

    Masses of flowers in first year, really healthy plants and so easy to grow from bareroot, mine weren't planted properly for over a month and are huge and leafy with about 40 buds.The flowers look a little washed out though which takes the edge off their appeal, almost like a dip dye blue rinse on a cream rose. None of my flowers look as evenly toned as the picture and some are very much pink.
