David Austin & Shrub Roses
At Gardenroses.co.uk we have a large range of shrub roses which can also be referred as English roses. Shrub Roses have been around for many years and are often thought of as the classic shrub rose - the majority of our shrub collection are more modern varieties which have excellent health and often fragrance whilst still retaining the classic charm of older varieties.
We are also growers of David Austin roses and have a wide range available within our collection, many of which also have a fantastic fragrance.
Varieties chosen are those which repeat flower well throughout the summer into late autumn and offer range of colours, flower shapes. The majority of shrub roses are taller varieties often growing around 1.2-1.5m, some of which can also be trained into shorter growing climbers.
Shrub roses need plenty of room between each plant (leave 1.2m between each rose) and also grow well amongst other tall and herbaceous plants in borders to give a true country garden feel. Shrub roses can be grown in pots but the majority of roses will require much larger ones due to their larger nature (approx half barrel size).
