Please check for seasonality and availability of Rose varieties by giving us a call, e-mailing or visiting the Nursery.
Roses are a must for any garden lover who has a sunny spot in the garden and Heynes Garden Centre has a large selection for you to choose from.
Roses can be planted at any time of the year providing that stock is still available at the time you need them. However the winter months are still the best time to select from a larger range of roses.Whether you choose bare rooted or container plants make sure that they have strong green canes.
BARE ROOTED ROSES (Winter Planting Only)
Roses that are for sale as “bare rooted” come in bags with the roots surrounded in damp sawdust/potting mix. The roses are dormant, they have no leaves or flowers and are only available in winter (June/July). When selecting bare rooted roses make sure that both the bud union and the stems are healthy and strong. There should be no withered dry stems or long, soft, yellow shoots appearing along the branches.
CONTAINER GROWN ROSES
Roses growing in pots are available for sale all year round and are actively growing with leaves and possibly flowers. Roses grown in containers can be planted at any time of the year providing that the weather is not extreme (hot), however it is important to take care of the rose according to the season it is planted.
TYPES OF ROSES
Heynes stock a wide range of roses which include: Hybrid tea, Floribunda, Standard, Climbing, Miniature, Weeping Standards, Groundcovers, David Austin Roses and Delbard Roses.
Hybrid Tea Roses
The most commonly grown rose. Large flowers are borne singularly to a stem, they are supported by long, straight and upright stems. Great for cut flowers. Usually about 1.5m to 2.0m, and up to 1.5m width.
Floribunda or Cluster Flowered Roses
Small to medium size blooms (Flowers) come in clusters; ideal for massed planting effect. 1m to 2m tall and 1m width.
Standard or Stem Roses
Hybrid Tea, Floribundas, Shrubs or Miniatures are budded onto a single stem of a standard height. Heynes stock 3ft or 900mm tall standards. The rose grows to its usual height on top of the stem. Standard roses give height and allow easy under-planting.
Climbing, Rambling Roses
Long climbing canes, used on walls, fences, pillars and posts, trellises, entrance ways or over an arch. Ramblers are usually only spring flowering, where most climbers repeat their flowers from spring to late autumn.
Miniature Roses are roses on a small scale. Miniature roses are great in containers, make lovely borders. Miniatures are grown on their own roots, and come in a range of colours.
Budded onto single 1.5m to 2m tall stem, flowering canes cascade downwards. Making a great specimen plant. Will need rose ring for support.
Easy and hardy plant. Low spreading plants to 50cm in height. Small flowers in great numbers.
David Austin Roses
David Austin, combine the form of flower, fragrance and character of an old rose with the range of colour and repeat flowering characteristics of modern hybrid tea rose and floribunda rose. Height and spread vary enormously.
Roses in this collection are intense and individual. Healthy, exquisitely different, delightfully fragrant and free-flowering and variable splashes of colour.
