    This is stocked by both Trevor White Roses and Peter Beales Roses but both are out of stock currently....  you will see which is the cheaper of the two..

    I don't know anyone else who has it in this country... sorry, but please be aware that it only flowers during June/July...

    Hi thanks for the reply would you recommend  ( If possable) a similar Rose maybe with a longer flowering period For a pot.
  • MarlorenaMarlorena East AngliaPosts: 2,006
    Yes of course.... if you like white, try 'Marie Pavie'... or 'White Pet'... 
    For something more modern, and blush pink, try 'Chandos Beauty'... or 'Lady Emma Hamilton' [orange]..

    Available from either the 2 nurseries above, or David Austin roses... all are scented and long flowering... and compact for pots...

    Hi I've decided I will get 
    1x " Chandos beauty" & 1x" lady Emma Hamilton"

    Should I get bare root or in a pot?

    Also when I transfer them will a 32 cm pot be ideal.

    I would go a little bigger on the pot size if you can. I have a Lady Em in a 40cm square pot and it looks in proportion, its in it’s second year in that pot. Personal choice re potted or bare root but the latter is cheaper. I was a bit nervous about buying bare root at first, but now I’m a convert!

    @mooota1514 ;

    Nollie is correct... for these two gorgeous roses, and I'm delighted you have chosen them, if you can it would be best to go 40 cm, or 45 even if you can manage, width and depth... these roses are more vigorous than the others I mentioned...  I have 'Marie Pavie' in a 32cm pot and it'll be good for quite a while in that...  however, if you only have 32cm and don't want to get another, you can go with that for now, and later on, maybe during next winter, you could tip it out and transfer to a larger pot if you feel the need and can afford it.. I know how expensive they are..


    Oh, and get bare root if you can, and don't be afraid to trim the roots back by as much as half, if you need to, to fit into the pot..

    Hi sorry I got my measurements wrong it should have been.

    (H)42 x (W)60cm

    ( the two pots are exactly the same)


    Can you recommend should it be compost for Roses only & will I have to mix anything along with the compost)

    Thanks for the comments I'll keep you updated.

    Oh that's good, should be fine for your roses..

    If you can, try and use a 50/50 or roughly 60/40 mix of John Innes no. 3 compost mixed with a multi purpose... you can throw in a spade full of your own garden soil if you want... sprinkle some slow release fertilizer around top of pot when complete and water in....  most people would always recommend a JI no. 3 as part of the mix for roses..

    It takes quite a lot of compost to fill pots and they are very heavy afterwards, so pot them up when pots are already in their final position, as moving them afterwards will be difficult without help..

    Hi thanks for kind help and I will keep you updated.

    I noticed the Monty Don mentioned garden soil so thanks for reminding me to mix it in with the compost.
