Roses

Roses arrive at the nursery in late February as bare-root plants and are ready to be planted at that time.  We sell most of our roses this way, but we also grow roses in containers to be available by June.

We carry David Austin, Pan American and Weeks roses and place our orders with these suppliers in mid summer for the following year.  Please see the list below for some of our favourites which we tend to bring in year after year. Please note: the online database is not current at this time but will be updated in September. Feel free to drop us an email or call to reserve if there is a specific rose that you would like to get.

If you’re looking for a specific variety of David Austin, Pan American or Weeks roses, you can pre-order with us until the end of July. Hard copies of the 2019 rose catalogues are currently available at the nursery, or you can view the digital versions by clicking on the links above.
