Roses

2019 CATALOGUE

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.  See the catalogue below for the varieties that have been ordered for 2019. Please email or call us if there are specific roses from the list that you would like to reserve. (Numbers are limited so unfortunately we cannot guarantee availability.)
