Roses 2017

Below is the list of the roses that have been ordered for 2017.  They should be arriving at the nursery towards the end of February and will be available for purchase as bare root plants for approximately 6 weeks.  This is a great way to add to you garden for a very reasonable price. If you would rather wait to see the plant in bloom, many (though not all) will be potted up and available for purchase in early summer.  No matter which way you choose, you can expect   nice sized plants and lots of blooms even in the first year.

If there is specific variety from our list that you are interested in please email us  at russellnurseryoffice@telus.net  ASAP as some varieties do go fast. Sorry we are not able to ship plants
