Description of Alfred de Dalmas Roses:
This famous old rose has white petals that are kissed by a pink, mother-of-pearl sheen. The plump, semi-double, medium sized flowers keep on coming through most of the summer and the subtle fragrance carries well.
This is a moss rose, with a little bit of moss texture on the buds. It is quite thorny.

History and Parentage of Alfred de Dalmas Roses:
This French rose is also called Mousseline and dates back to 1855.
Alfred de Dalmas should be planted over the winter months, between late autumn and early spring. They are suited to any well-drained soil, but digging some well-rotted garden compost into the planting area beforehand helps. Using Rootgrow when planting will also give your plant a terrific start in its new home.
Fully grown these roses will spread to around 4ft, and should be allowed the necessary space to grow into as they mature. The plants should be fed well with a good quality rose feed at the beginning of the season.
Alfred de Dalmas should be planted in partial to full sun for best results, but being totally hardy it will grow in almost any aspect except one facing north. Like all roses except large ramblers it does not like being under trees. Weeding should be done by hand or with a hoe to avoid root damage. Weeds can be reduced and kept at bay by mulching.

Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £6.50 + vat, which increases to £12.55 + vat if you add any pot-grown plants, standard trees or fruit trees to the order.
Because couriers sometimes experience delays, we schedule delivery by week, not by day. Therefore, please plan your planting day for the weekend at the end of the delivery week or for the week following delivery, at the earliest.
We will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
*Surcharges to the Highlands and Islands still apply.
Payment: We do not charge your card until we begin to prepare your order for packing.
Guarantee: If any plants die within a year, we will replace them. We only ask that you follow our planting & growing instructions and sent us clear photographs of the dead plants in situ, so we can help to make sure that the replacement plants succeed. You only pay for the delivery of the replacements.
Please note that our guarantee is void if there is a hosepipe ban in your area: your newly planted hedging must be watered in dry weather while it is establishing. The best way to water is very thoroughly every few days: at least once a week if there is no heavy rain.
Our nursery has been supplying container grown and bareroot hedging plants to gardeners, farmers and town planners since 1949. Our website started in 2003, so we do understand the concerns that you may have about buying hedging plants online. If any of your plants are damaged when they arrive or if you are otherwise not satisfied with your order after you inspect it, please repackage it and contact us. We will give you a refund or send replacements and send a courier to come and collect the unwanted plants.
