All about potted roses

They are very popular gifts and can be planted all year round. Once planted, they establish quickly in the garden, flowering in their first year – and for many years to come.

Our videos are filmed in the UK, and so some of the season timings mentioned will apply to the UK and some of the products featured won't be available in Australia. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions, or contact your local stockist.


We recommend planting potted roses as soon as possible. However, if you are unable to plant immediately, roses can be kept in their pots quite happily for two months or more, as long as they are watered appropriately. Potted roses should not be allowed to dry out. A full, regular watering is better than just small amounts daily. The need for water is dependent on the weather and potting mix. For that reason we suggest contacting the garden centre where you bought the rose for a local recommendation.
