Bare root roses are great because
Autumn/winter is the ideal time for planting bare root roses. The moist soil encourages their roots to grow and, whilst they do not look very pretty immediately, they have the whole winter to establish. Come summer your roses will be ready to burst into spectacular bloom.
Bare root roses are delivered in a box without soil. As they come without a pot, there is less plastic wastage. They are also more environmentally friendly to deliver and store than potted roses.
If you are planting in large numbers, perhaps creating a rose border or a hedge, bare roots are great as they are easier to handle, lighter in weight than potted roses and occupy less room when delivered. You can also make good savings when mass planting as bare root roses are slightly cheaper.
Helping you be that little bit greener, our bare root roses arrive in plastic-free, biodegradable packaging. Just pop the compostable liners on your compost heap or in your food waste bin.
