Rose Plant Delivery Information

Potted/Container rose orders are currently being dispatched within 1-2 working days of ordering. Orders placed from mid-day on Thursday to Sunday during May to September will normally be dispatched the following Monday, (excluding bank holidays) to avoid the plants being without light or water for a long period whilst with the courier and preventing the plants from becoming stressed. At other times of the year our garden rose varieties can be dispatched from Monday to Friday without problem and please be assured that our roses are very robust, strong healthy stock and travel very well.

Bareroot rose orders will be dispatched in rotational order from November, there is a normal delay in November to clear the back log of orders placed over the summer and autumn, this backlog is normally cleared by early December subject to the weather both allowing us to lift and dispatch roses during this period, a bareroot rose can be planted anytime between November and March without problems and will flower as normal the next summer.

Due to plant import restrictions imposed by some countries, we are only able to dispatch container/potted roses to the United Kingdom. Bare root roses can be dispatched to GB. Separate delivery charges apply to the Highlands and Islands, details of postcodes with a surcharge for GB addresses can be found on this page and the website will not allow you to order, please call 01406 424089 or email to place an order.

Rose deliveries normally require a signature upon delivery for unless otherwise instructed by you to leave in a safe place such as a porch, garage or neighbour as detailed whilst in the check out area.
