Special Occasion Rose Gift SetsOur Special Occasion Gift Sets are potted, presented in a ribbon-tied hessian bag and safely packed in a strong cardboard container to ensure that they arrive in pristine condition. Included in the price is a greetings card with your personal message. Also, each rose, which is in a 4 litre pot, is supplied with an attractive coloured label with a picture and description of the rose.
Let someone celebrate that special day with a beautiful potted rose gift that gives lasting pleasure and enjoyment whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, wedding, retirement, house warming, Mother's Day, Father's Day, or just to say thank you.
A bouquet of roses can be quite expensive considering they will only last a week or so. A living rose bush will last for many years and give far more enjoyment.

Rose CatalogueSelect the options below to browse through our huge variety of roses listed by rose type.
ClimbersVigorous climbing roses, diverse in growth and colour. Some climbing roses flower only in the summer, others flower more than once in the same season, flowering in summer - autumn.
Climbing PatioClimbing Patio roses are ideal for use when one requires a climbing rose minus some of the associated vigour. Climbing patio roses have a more compact growth that gives a denser mass of floribunda type blooms.
FloribundaFloribunda roses take the form of a cluster-flowered bush. Shrubs that usually bloom more than once in the same season - usually large sprays of flowers in summer - autumn. Floribunda roses are unrivalled for providing a long-lasting bedding display.
Ground CoverGround Cover roses are ideal for difficult areas, banks, places that are difficult to mow, etc. These plants form a colourful ground cover 'mat' between 30cm and 60cm in height with slight scent.
Hybrid TeaThe ever popular Hybrid Tea grows as a large-flowered bush. Hybrid Tea roses differ from the floribunda group in that their blooms are larger and less in number. The striking blooms tend to be a classic rose shape. They usually bloom more than once in the same season with large flowers borne in summer - autumn.
Nostalgic RosesThis is a new range to British Roses and Rumwood Nurseries. These beautiful roses are reminiscent of historic English bourbon roses. The Nostalgic range are compact plants growing to about 90-100cm tall. Nostalgic roses have good disease resistance, are ideal for rose beds, cut flowers, planted in a mixed border, or even in a large container.
Patio & MiniaturePatio & Miniature roses have limited growth and so can be successfully grown in restricted situations, for example, in pots indoors, rockeries, troughs, flower beds close to the house.
RamblersAll strong growing with Floribunda type blooms. Ramblers are more rampant and pliable in growth than climbing roses.
Shrub RosesShrub Roses are a diverse group of roses. Most shrub roses bloom more than once in the same season and are larger than bush roses, with flowers borne singly or in sprays in summer and/or autumn.
StandardsStandards give that extra depth and third dimension to flower beds and borders. Standard roses also look great in pots. Stems are approximately 1m tall.
Half StandardsHalf Standards are just slightly lower than the full Standard. Stems are approximately 0.75m tall.
Quarter StandardsQuarter Standards look great near the patio or in a pot. Quarter standard stems are approximately 0.5m tall.
Mini StandardsMini Standards are great in pots for standing on a patio. Mini standard stems are approximately 0.3m tall.
