Sustainable Style with a Barrelful of Blooms
If you are looking to grow greener then you can’t get much more sustainable than planting our UK grown seasonal bare root English Roses in a re-purposed container. Delivered in plastic-free packaging, a bare root rose planted in an upcycled container, can turn something unloved into a favourite spot in the garden, whilst creating a pollinator happy habitat during summer months.
For a re-purposed planter with a touch of rustic charm try using an old barrel. We recommend any container is at least 45cm x 45cm and be sure to pop some drainage holes in the bottom along with some gravel or re-use blocks of polystyrene to further aid drainage.
Raise it Up and Deck it Out
Re-purposed containers are an easy and sustainable way of bringing roses into any outdoor area. Why not place an aged wooden planter from a reclamation yard over decking to turn it into a tranquil garden space, or perhaps if you have a large area of gravel where a large trough or metal container can be re-purposed to create a quick raised bed.
A project like this planted now with bare roots roses is both economical and environmentally friendly, plus the bees will love it too come summer.
barrels of Fragrance
Fragrant rose varieties such as Gabriel Oak, Princess Anne or Desdemona will make a wonderful barrelful of roses, that delight your senses each time you step or wander through your garden.
