|Roses vary in colour from white through to yellows, oranges, reds
and purples. The colour here represents the rose's colour if grown in
sandy Norfolk soil in East Anglian weather conditions. If you garden
in a different situation then the colour tones may vary.
|Bare root roses are available to order all year with despatch from November to March.|
|Container roses are available in spring and summer and ready pruned in late summer autumn.|
|Standard Tree roses are budded in 'Standard' form at varying heights.
2'6" for half standards,
3'3" for modern and full standards,
3'6" for shrub standards
4'6" for weeping standards..

|Roses belong to many families such as the Portlands, Damasks, the modern
families and many more. Different families have different charactaristics; the
Damasks tend to be very double flowers with heavy scents, and the species
tend to be single flowers with mostly little scent that attract varied wildlife.
Roses fall into many groups which more or less define their function in the
garden. Groups include shrubs which tend to be full, waist height plants,
climbers which climb up structures, ramblers with grow quickly up to 15m (40ft)
or more although they tend not to repeat flower, and procumbent ground covering roses
which are useful for sprawling closer to the ground
Search by the estimated eventual height of the plant.
Plant mesurements are given as height by width. All heights quoted on the website
are guide heights based on mature plants grown in Norfolk sandy soil conditions under
East Anglian sun and so your eventual plant size may vary.
|Rose scent is so subjective that there was intense debate here at Peter Beales Roses
on whether it should even be included on our website. But as it is such an important
factor for many rose growers we have tried to provided scent strengths. These scent ratings
have been compiled soley by Peter Beales himself to try and give total consistancy through out
this very subjective topic. For example some roses smell intensely of citrus or myrh but
there are some people who can simply not detect either fragrance!
|Roses vary in thornyness from totally thornless roses like Zephrine Drouhin and Kathleen Haropp
through to very thorny roses like Kiftsgate and Mermaid, which are so big and thorny
they are useful for using as security barriers where intruders may otherwise stray! Most roses have some thorns and some are extremely interesting and beautiful.
|Where possible we have provided the date of introduction for each variety.
Some roses, especially the species roses which evolved naturally are so old
that the rose community can only guess at the age so we have provided an estimate.
Normally five petalled blooms exposing stamens at the centre.
Goblet shaped flowers of varying numbers of petals.
Many petalled flowers.
Blooms open from very pointed buds.
Generally open, often flat, usually many petalled
but sometimes has fewer petals.
Usually many petalled blooms with centre petals of
open flowers clearly falling into four segments
Shallow cupped saucer shaped blooms.
Densely packed petals forming usually convex shaped blooms.
Blooms with many disorderly petals in an attractive formation.
|Roses can either be single (a few petals), semi double (more petals) or double (lots of petals).
|Small bloom sizes are appx 2.5cm (1") across, while medium tend to be 5cm (2") to 75cm (3") across and large bloom sizes can be over 7.5cm (3")|
|Some roses, especially some of the hybrid teas and species roses can bear very interesting
hips if not dead headed in the summer. These come in a variety of colours and can help bring
birds and other wildlife into the garden, as well as add a dash of much needed colour in the autumn.
|Some roses, especially some of the hybrid teas and species roses can bear very interesting
hips if not dead headed in the summer. These come in a variety of sizes and shapes from oval
Suitable for growing:

|Some varieties are worth growing for the ornamental value of hips|
|North wall conditions can be harsher than other aspects in terms of wind damage, frost and temperature changes. Some roses grow well in these conditions.|
|Although no rose enjoys shade, some are more tolerant of shade than others. All roses need at least 2 to 3 hours of direct sun a day, most need more.|
|Can be used to climb and ramble through small trees|
|If supported and pruned back, some climbing roses can be grown as shrub roses|
|Some rose varieties are worth growing for the colours of their autumn foliage|

Overseas customers should check with their Government Agricultural Department to see if an import permit is required, if so a copy of this should be sent with the order.

18. Guarantee & Non-availability of Exported Roses ~ We will honour our guarantee terms on any roses which fail to grow subject to the terms of our guarantee (See paragraph 2), but all other costs including root washing, carriage, packing and statutory export charges etc. will be applied to any replacements.
19. Opening Times ~ Please see page 2 of the catalogue or visit our website on the ‘Contact Us’ page on www.classicroses.co.uk
20. Quality ~ Later in the summer container plants will be sent out ready pruned. This means they will not have flowers and may not have much foliage. These container plants can be planted in the garden or a larger container/pot ready for new growth during the next season. All of our rose stock is of the finest quality for each variety, but it should be noted that although most shrubs, old fashioned and climbing roses etc. make quite good sized plants in a reasonable period of time, some varieties, especially rare varieties, tend to be much smaller. It is often for this reason that many classic roses are not widely grown by other nurseries. Therefore, if you order these types of rose, please accept that the rarer sorts may be smaller than their more vigorous counterparts. Their price relates to the rarity and difficulty to produce rather than the size of the plant. We reserve the right to send the best plant of any given variety we have. If we consider it to be smaller than you might reasonably expect, we will note this on a label. If the plant does not start to produce satisfactory growth, subject to the provisions of our guarantee, we will replace the plant subject to availability of stock.
These terms are current and replace previous terms. The terms will apply to your order, but are subject to change so please do not assume that the same terms will apply to future orders.
