Thank you so much, Catherine & Co.! The tree arrived this afternoon along with the rhubarb. It was so well-packed that it took me almost an hour to unravel all the tape, bubblewrap and such. The tree looks great. It has had some compost put around its roots in a breathable bag for this evening and the rhubarb root planted in a pot; I won't plant that out until Spring is around the corner. I find they don't like sitting in cold, damp soil over the Winter when establishing. Thank you again for all your kind help and valued advice. I certainly know where to come next time!Ruth
Roses are probably the most popular garden plant there is. They flower from late May well into winter. They are among the most beautifully scented garden flowers.

or giving even large trees a coat of many flowers in June. You can buy any of over 250 varieties of rose bush here. All are available as bareroot roses for winter planting although our roses can be ordered at any time of year. Depending on the weather however, delivery is between between the beginning of November and the end of March. Bareroot roses are larger, healthier and more economical than pot grown roses; they are enormously tough and extremely easy to handle and plant.
We try extremely hard to produce high quality roses. The best rootstocks are chosen and the varieties on offer are selected to provide a range of colour, blossom shape, scent, size and habit so as to suit any taste and location. Almost all roses are grafted which required skill and delicacy and our plants are grown in the heavy but good draining soil that roses love. When you buy roses here you can be sure you will receive premium quality plants.
Ashridge Nurseries roses are categorised to make your selection easier. You will find all our roses listed under one of the following headings:
