    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

    Outstanding roses bred by Lens In 2021 we were pleased to introduce an exquisite range of roses from world-renowned Belgium rose breeder Lens Roses. About Lens Roses Founded in 1870 by Louis Lens senior, the tree and rose nursery has always had a strong influence within the rose breeding family.

    Training Roses

    Training climbing and rambling roses Roses do not cling to the wall themselves like some plants do. Therefore they will require tying in. On a wall it is a good idea to put up trellis or wires for this purpose. As the rose grows it should be encouraged to grow horizontally outward and upward. The lower stems straight out where possible and the taller ones, up and then outward. In this way new growth will be encouraged, as will more flowers. On a pillar it is best, where possible to train the branches around it for the same reason as above. Ramblers for trees will need to be tied to the trunk to begin with until the branches meet those of the tree, thereafter, the tree will act as a natural support.

    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

    The Truly Classic Rose

    We all have a picture in our minds of how a classic rose garden looks and smells. The masses of beautiful flowers in early summer and the gorgeous scent drifting through the warm summer air. Typically, the roses that we would describe as ‘classic roses’ are the Gallicas, Albas, Mosses, Centifolias, Damasks and Species. These roses generally tend to have very old origins and often have beautiful, highly scented flowers, will grow happily in any soil condition and are very healthy. Some of these groups are even considered to

    A worry free guide to pruning roses

    Whether you are completely new to roses or have been growing them for years, pruning them can seem like a bit of a daunting task, but it needn’t be. The first thing I would really like to stress is that no matter how bad a job you make of pruning your roses, you are not going to kill them! As the old gardener’s saying ‘Get your worst enemy to prune your roses’ suggests, roses are tough and can take a lot more abuse than people give them credit for. Just think about how badly butchered hedgerows look along the roadside after the farmer has hacked them back. It’s easy to look at them, resembling nothing more than bare broken and splintered sticks and wonder how these poor roses and hawthorns will ever survive, but they do. A trial was conducted several years ago at the Gardens of the Rose, St Albans, where some of their ros

    Species Roses

    Species roses are becoming a more and more popular choice in our gardens, but what exactly is a species rose? They are best described as wild or pure roses of natural origin, with mostly single flowers. Originating from all around the northern hemisphere, many date back to ancient history and are the ancestors that all modern roses originated from. Rose petals and leaves from species roses have even been known to have been found in tombs belonging to ancient Egyptians. Used within garlands, which would have been worn by loved ones, these were then left in the tombs with the bodies. These are also the roses that we see in the hedgerows around our countryside. Whilst many of these roses originated from Europe, we have about twelve native varieties growing naturally within our hedgerows.
