    Kordes Roses - Best of the Best Collection

    Sensational roses bred by Kordes Famous around the world for their exceptional disease resistance and beauty, we are proud to be able to offer our customers a selection of exceptional roses bred by German rose breeders Kordes. About Kordes Roses In 1887 Wilhelm Kordes I, founded the first W. Kordes’ Söhne nursery in a small town called Elmshorn, just north of Hamburg in Germany. At the age of 22 years, he could not have foreseen that his passionate interest in roses and breeding would influence the life of his descendants over many generations to come. Over the years the company grew and in 1919 relocated to Klein Offenseth-Sparrieshoop where the company still trades from today. Wilhelm’s two sons began working for the company adding their flair and talent. Wilhelm II dedicated his life to breeding, whilst Hermann I concentrated on building the business. The introduction of ‘Crimson Glory’ in 1935 was one of the early successes from the breeding program. In 1

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Below we have tried to answer some of the most common questions we get asked, but more in-depth information can be found within our advice pages. WHAT IS A BARE ROOT ROSE? Bare root roses are supplied without any soil, hard pruned and often have no foliage, during the winter months when the plants are dormant. This means that they are no longer focussing their energy into new growth and can therefore be lifted from the ground without causing any stress to the plant. This is normal for roses at this time of year and they will quickly produce healthy new growth come spring. The benefits of buying bare root roses are that there is a greater choice of variety available, as well as being planted at a less stressful time for the plants. This means that they can develop a strong healthy root system quicker than a containerised rose planted in the middle of summer. WHAT IS A CONTAINER ROSE? Our container roses are potted with specially prepared compost during

    Bare Root or Container Roses

    Choosing your roses – bare root or container Traditionally roses were supplied bare root during the winter months whilst in their dormant state. However, over recent years there has been an increasing demand for roses to be supplied in containers during the summer. Once the plants are established there will actually be very little difference between them, but there are a few advantages and disadvantages to both methods and the decision simply comes down to personal preference or availability.   The Potted/Container Rose Container roses are available to purchase from us throughout the year, but please note there is likely to be less choice towards the end of the year. This is because our roses are containerised early in the year, so come winter there will naturally be fewer containers and less choice available. The big advantage of buying a containerised rose, is that i

  6. Pruning and Dead-Heading Roses

    Pruning and Dead-Heading Roses

    Pruning your Roses Pruning worries many gardeners but if you keep the rules simple it is quite a logical procedure. In all pruning, dead and diseased wood should always be removed. If taking away an entire branch, try to leave as little of it behind as possible to avoid dead stumpy areas on the plant. All other cuts should be made above an outward-facing bud and on an angle away from it, thus preventing rain-water from sitting there. Remove wood, which has rubbed against other branches, and become damaged. Try to keep the centre of the plant open. Always use good quality, sharp secateurs to ensure that cuts are clean. Both the Expert Bypass Pruner and the Professional Pruner by
