Special Occasion Rose Gift SetsNew from British Roses - our Special Occasion Gift Sets are potted, presented in a ribbon-tied hessian bag and safely packed in a strong cardboard container to ensure that they arrive in pristine condition. Included in the price is a greetings card with your personal message. Also, each rose, which is in a 4 litre pot, is supplied with an attractive coloured label with a picture and description of the rose.
Let someone celebrate that special day with a beautiful rose gift that gives lasting pleasure and enjoyment whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, wedding, retirement, house warming, Mother's Day, Father's Day, or just to say thank you.
A bouquet of roses can be quite expensive considering they will only last a week or so. A living rose bush will last for many years and give far more enjoyment.

ClimbersVigorous climbing roses, diverse in growth and colour, some flowering in summer only, others flowering more than once in the same season, flowering in summer - autumn.
Climbing PatioClimbing Patio roses are ideal for use when one requires a climbing rose minus some of the associated vigour. The more compact growth gives a denser mass of floribunda type blooms.
English RosesDavid Austin Roses that possess the original charm and high fragrance of traditional shrub roses. They are crossbred to also offer good bloom form and repeat flowering.
FloribundaFloribunda roses take the form of a cluster-flowered bush. Shrubs that usually bloom more than once in the same season - usually large sprays of flowers in summer - autumn. Unrivalled for providing a long-lasting bedding display.
Ground CoverGround Cover roses are ideal for difficult areas, banks, places that are difficult to mow, etc. These plants form a colourful ground cover 'mat' between 30cm and 60cm in height with slight scent.
Hybrid TeaThe ever popular Hybrid Tea grows as a large-flowered bush. Differs from the floribunda group in that its blooms are larger and less in number. The striking blooms tend to be a classic rose shape. They usually bloom more than once in the same season with large flowers borne in summer - autumn.
Patio & MiniaturePatio & Miniature roses have limited growth and so can be successfully grown in restricted situations, for example, in pots indoors, rockeries, troughs, flower beds close to the house.
RamblersAll strong growing with Floribunda type blooms. Ramblers are more rampant and pliable in growth than climbing roses.
Shrub RosesShrub Roses are a diverse group of roses. Most bloom more than once in the same season and are larger than bush roses, with flowers borne singly or in sprays in summer and/or autumn.
