Roses for winter planting are in!

Nov 19, 2020

A wonderful selection of over 500 roses ready for winter planting has just arrived here at Bumbles Plant Centre! Shrub / hybrid tea, bush, patio, climber and rambler varieties in a large range of colours and fragrances, also our new range of “Home Florist” roses, ideal for cutting. Plus we have hedging varieties Rosa rugosa, with rosa glauca and rosa canina coming soon!

Why should you plant roses now instead of the spring?

Planting dormant roses in winter gives your plants optimum growing conditions and plenty of settling-in time before hot and dry weather arrives. The most successful rose plantings are those in which feeder roots are allowed to develop at a moderate rate, and the slow awakening of plants from winter into springtime is a natural order of progression.

How to plant your Roses

Remember to dig a hole twice as big as the pot, mix 50/50 the native soil dug up with fresh compost for planting. Add a sprinkle of bonemeal or mycorrhizal fungi which will help root “flare” and establishment. Finally water in well and mulch with compost, leaf mould, bark or our “Blooming Amazing” organic straw based mulch. And that’s it!
