David Austin Roses
Effortless and beautiful, English Roses are the highlight of any garden, flowering every summer with ease and outstanding health. Their large blooms, famous fragrances and copious colour will bring joy as they magically transform your garden.
Delbard Roses are an exciting new collection from renowned breeder Delbard of France. All are possessed of a wonderful perfume and many are award winners at trials throughout Europe. They range from short shrubs to climbers.
Hybrid Tea Roses
Hybrid Tea roses are hardy, vigorous, long (repeat) flowering and disease resistant. This makes them ideal plants to have in large pots, as hedges or borders.
Weeping Roses are a climbing style of rose that has been grafted or budded onto a very tall rose cane.
Standard roses have a single tall stem, topped with foliage and flowers, like a small tree. They are usually a modern rose or miniature rose grafted onto a strong, bare stem.
Floribunda Roses are prized for creating a mass of colour by bearing many flowers held in large clusters – in fact, few plants can produce so much colour over such a long season.
How to plant and grow a rose
We're here to provide you with expert guidance on the ideal placement for your cherished rose plants. Follow these key strategies to ensure the health and vitality of your roses:
1. Shelter from Strong Winds
Shield your delicate rose blossoms from the brunt of strong winds to prevent any potential damage. Opt for a location that offers protection, safeguarding the beauty of your blooms.
2. Uninterrupted Space for Growth
Select a site that grants ample space for your roses to flourish both above and below the ground. This eliminates any competition for resources and encourages robust growth.
3. Embrace Air Circulation
Promote a thriving rose environment by allowing sufficient air circulation around your bushes. Avoid overcrowding, which could hinder proper air movement and lead to potential issues.
4. Bask in Full Sunlight
Position your rose plants in an area that receives abundant sunlight—no less than six hours per day—during their active growth phase. This optimal exposure enhances flower production and minimizes potential challenges.
5. Soil Adaptability and Drainage
Roses are remarkably versatile when it comes to soil types, yet one non-negotiable requirement is excellent drainage. Should your soil be poorly drained or heavy clay-based, consider elevating your planting by creating a mound or using a raised bed. This precaution ensures that excess water doesn't impede the growth of your roses.
6. Premium Conditions for Pot Growth
When cultivating roses in pots, opt for a premium potting mix. This specialized blend offers the ideal nutrient-rich environment your roses need to thrive, ensuring their health and vitality.
