Rose Standards

Rosa

Hardy Shrub

These miniature standard roses are much more reliable and floriferous than ever before due to enhanced breeding and more compact flowering plants. Very easy to look after, these great little roses are perfect for containers on your patio, as a feature in garden borders and can be kept pruned to whatever size head that you would like. Available in four fantastic colours - red, yellow, pink and white, each are outstanding on their own and would also look great if arranged on your patio or as a feature in a bed. Supplied with a stem length of 45cm, these rose standards will stand out proudly in any kind of display.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Rosehips and petals can be used in making syrups and the petals will add flavour to cold drinks or fruit dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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. Stems of climbing roses will require training against a suitable support such as a pergola, fence or wall.
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 late summer begin pruning climbing roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged stems. For the first two years the remaining stems should be trained horizontally on wires. From the third year, the main stems can be reduced to maintain the plant within the available growing space. Side shoots should be reduced to 3 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. Plants, bulbs, corms, tubers, shrubs, trees, potatoes etc are delivered at the appropriate time for planting and will be stated on the product page or in your order acknowledgement page and email.


Orders for packets of seed incur a P&P charge of £1.95.
Orders which include any other products will incur a P&P charge of £4.95.
Where an order includes both packets of seeds and other products a maximum P&P charge of £6.90 will apply - regardless of the number of items ordered.


Please see our Delivery / P&P page for further details and details of any surcharges that may apply to certain destinations.

  1. 4 sticks

    By Jackie Waring 07-08-2016

    Ordered 4 standard roses, arrived 17 May, watered, planted in pots, fed etc, 2 months later, still got 4 sticks! Refund obtained, minus £2.47, presumably for postage! Not impressed.

  2. 2 sticks by Doreen Daffey 18/05/16

    I like previous review ordered a pink and yellow rose, after a month's delay the roses finally arrived or should I say sticks arrived. There doesn't appear to be any sign of life and I cannot see that they will produce flowers in the near future very very disappointed.
