Roses

2020 CATALOGUE

 

Please call (250-656-0384) or email (russellnursery@telus.net) if you would like to pre-order for spring 2020.

 

 

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.

SORRY, WE ARE NOT ABLE TO SHIP PLANTS
