where to buy very mature climbing roses?

Liz EarleLiz Earle Posts: 3
Hi, I have a 3ft brick wall in my terrace garden and id love to climb roses along the top of it to create more height/privacy. But i'm after very mature plants as i need them to look spectacular for my wedding next June, as im hosting the wedding in the garden. 

So here's the thing - where can i find mature roses? im after white and peach colourways, the old fashioned romantic kind about 6ft x 6ft and i need about 20 of them! 

Im based in Leicester, but happy to hire a van and drive across country to fetch them.

    I would have a word with the people at David Austin or one of the other rose growers. If the order is placed in advance,  and they know not to cut them down before sending out, (which is usual) you should be able to get mature plants to plant in the dormant season (November to March) Probably Claire Austin and Wollerton Old Hall should fit the bill.

     Leicester to their nurseries in the West Midlands(Wolverhampton) is not far. If you go for a visit now, you should be able to see them all in flower.  You could probably get potted plants to get in now if you want.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    What do you intend to grow them up?
