I just wanted to let you know my plants have arrived today as promised. I have unpacked them and they are wonderful, I am so pleased with them. They are much bigger than I expected and in tip-top condition. Thank you so much. I also think they are really excellent value for money – I buy most of my plants on-line (living in Cornwall the choices are a bit limited) and I had looked for Hydrangea seemannii at my usual on-line supplier but they were so expensive I was a bit put off. Ten pounds per plant more (!) Then I searched around and found you – your plants were considerably cheaper and larger so I was a bit worried they might fall short of the mark. But… absolutely no worries on that front. In fact I bought two seemannii from the other supplier earlier this year (I think they are a very ‘useful’ plant, particularly for someone who lives in a walled garden) so can do a direct comparison. Interestingly, they are smaller than yours now even though they have been in the ground and well cared for, for more than six summer months. Many thanks, excellent service and terrific plants – I will be back..!Debbie Frost
Little White Pet Shrub Roses
Rosa Little White Pet - Shrub Roses
Description of Little White Pet Roses:
A very small rose that puts all its energy into flowering, Little White Pet is a common patio rose for growing in pots and will fit into crowded borders. The well formed, rosette shaped white flowers burst from red buds for most of the summer and well cared for plants will reward you with great big clusters opening at once. There is almost no fragrance.
Although this rose will tolerate poor soil and shade pretty well, it is a small rose that flowers heavily. For best results, we recommend a good sunny spot and feeding during the flowering season.
