The prices quoted are for bare root roses unless otherwise stated. We offer a discount when customers purchase groups of three or more English Roses as bare roots. To qualify for this discount, roses must be of the same variety.
From time to time we may make promotional rose collections or exclusive customer offers available. If a free rose is included in the special offer terms and conditions, your free rose will be the lowest priced of those you have purchased.
