As we enter autumn and the start of the new bare root rose season, now is the perfect time to refresh our gardens and outdoor spaces, those treasured enclaves for which we have a new-found appreciation. It is here where we can nurture, nourish and enjoy the fruits of our labours, and where the reliability of nature offers us reassurance as our gardens emerge from dormancy to vibrant bloom.
David Austin Roses, the world’s leading rose breeder, remains committed to reducing its impact on the environment with its collection of bare root roses - the sustainable way to make the most of your autumn planting. These seasonal roses arrive in plastic-free, biodegradable packaging - great for the compost heap or food waste bin - helping us all to be that little bit greener. English-grown and easy to plant, these strong, stick-like plants will happily establish through the winter, blooming year after year with as much flourish and fragrance as a potted rose.
Gardening enthusiasts will already know the many benefits of these eco-friendly beauties: without the need for a pot or soil during transit, these dormant stems are ideal for mass planting, are physically lighter to handle, easier to store and are a cost-effective way to refresh any garden. Their versatility means that by introducing a few new bare root rose varieties into a mixed border or bed, anyone can quickly and easily refresh an outdoor space to stunning effect come the summer.
All David Austin rose varieties are available as bare root. Order online now for delivery between November and April.
