Standard Roses / Tree Roses
There are many ways that Standard Roses (also known as rose trees) within the garden. They can look great in containers by your exterior doors for a grand entrance or placed upon the patio. They can also be used to line driveways or add height and interest into borders. Alternatively, they can make an eye-catching centre piece in central beds.
Standard roses are easy to look after - they repeat flower throughout summer months. Perks of Standard roses include that you can look, smell, deadhead and prune your roses without the need to bend!
Our standard roses come in different stem heights - meaning that the rose is grafted at this point and the flowering point is higher than listed. Graft height is as listed; Quarter Standards (120cm), Half Standard (150cm) and Full Standards (180cm). Our weeping standards are listed within this category, but if you would like to browse these, you find our weeping roses here.
Please note that we are only able to dispatch our standard roses during the bareroot season which runs from November to March. Standard roses outside of this period are able to be collected from our nursery or purchased from us at Garden shows that we attend. Please call to check availability of our Standard varieties throughout the summer months on 01406 424089.
We recommend that all standard roses are planted alongside a stake and tie on the north side of the stem, which will help support the main stem and add protection against wind damage. We do offer stake and ties to be purchased alongside our standard roses (however these can not be purchased separately through our website, please contact us if you wish to place an order for stake and ties without standard roses). Standard Roses if planted in containers should be planted in a heavy ceramic container which will counter balance the weight of the head during the summer months.
