Our 2021 catalogue is now ready for spring ordering!


Send us an email (russellnursery@telus.net) or phone us at 250-656-0384 with your pre-orders.


Sorry, but we do not offer mail order service and cannot ship bare root or potted 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 in May and June.

We carry David Austin, Pan American and Weeks roses and place our orders with these suppliers in mid summer for the following year.

For more general information about our roses please see our Rose Information page.
