During the summer, we aim to select and despatch plants in bloom, although this cannot be guaranteed. Late summer container plants will be sent pruned and may not have flowers/much foliage. Container plants can be planted in garden or larger container/pot ready for new growth during next season. All rose stock is finest quality for each variety. Although most shrubs, old fashioned and climbing roses etc. make good sized plants in reasonable period, some, especially rare, tend to be smaller. For this reason many classic roses are not grown by other nurseries. We reserve right to send best plant of any given variety. If considered to be smaller than you might reasonably expect, this will be noted on label. If plant does not produce satisfactory growth, subject to provisions of guarantee, we will replace it subject to stock availability.
