Hedging & Wild Roses for Sale

The Best Wild & Hedge Rose Varieties

Our wild roses are enormously tough, thorny and disease resistant, excellent in mixed hedges or as wildlife friendly shrubs, popular with small nesting birds.

They are ideal for planting in areas where they will get little attention after they establish in their first year. They will all grow in damp, shady places and dry, exposed sites with poor soil. Rugosa varieties are the best for dry soil in shade, useful for protecting the edges of sand dunes from people and animals.

Can Roses Make a Hedge?

Yes, wild roses are suitable for secure hedging, but to maintain a really neat shape they need other plants to add rigidity to the structure, like Hawthorn, Hazel, and the other trees and large shrubs used in native hedge mix

They can be clipped like any ordinary hedge, and it's good to wear a helmet with face protection when cutting mature, overgrown ones that are as tall as you. 

For ornamental garden hedging intended for structure rather than a really serious boundary, you can use most shrub roses and large varieties of hybrid tea

All our rose bushes are covered by our replacement Guarantee, so you can give them a whirl with complete confidence. Best advice & friendly support throughout. All our bareroot roses are UK grown on heavy clay in a well drained site: heaven for rose roots! Pot grown stock uses peat free compost wherever possible.
