Frequently Asked Questions

Below you’ll find answers to the questions we’ve been asked many times in the past. If your question isn’t covered visit our dedicated FAQ’s page or contact one of our helpful rose experts.

What is the difference between a climber and a rambler?

Climbers generally have large blooms on not too vigorous, rather stiff growth and most repeat flower. Ramblers are in general, much more vigorous. They will produce great quantities of small flowers, although most do not repeat flower. There are exceptions to both these rules: for instance Malvern Hills and Snow Goose are repeat-flowering ramblers whereas Cecile Brunner Climbing is a once flowering climber with small flowers.

Most climbers are best for walls, trellises, arches, obelisks whereas ramblers are generally better for growing into trees and covering pergolas or large structures such as garages or sheds.

What’s the difference between a potted and a bare root rose? Which is best?

When ordering from us you have the choice of buying our roses as bare roots or in pots. Neither option is superior, it is simply a matter of personal choice. Whichever option you choose, your roses are guaranteed to bloom next summer – and for many summers to come.

Please note: ramblers, once flowering Old Roses and species roses all flower on mature wood and therefore may not flower in the first year after planting.


Availability period: November – May

Bare root roses are dormant plants, dug up from the field and shipped without soil. They are the ideal choice if you’re purchasing a large number of roses, as they are very lightweight and are therefore easier to handle in the garden.


Availability period: All Year

Potted roses are the very same roses as bare root roses. After each rose is dug up from the field, it is planted into a 6 litre pot, with our specially formulated planting mix. They are ideal for adding instant colour to the garden during the summer months, as well as making thoughtful gifts throughout the year.

Detailed Description

A climbing sport of the well-known Floribunda - there are few Floribundas that have successfully produced climbing sports. However, ‘Climbing Iceberg’ lives up to the high expectations we would have of its parent, sharing the bush’s extremely reliable characteristics whilst also taking on a new elegance with its longer growth. Very floriferous throughout the season, the small, lightly double flowers open wide and are held in large clusters. They are usually pure white but are sometimes tinged with pink later in the season. There is a light, sweet fragrance. The glossy, light green, rather narrow leaves are held on smooth, slender stems. A quick growing variety; the growth is both vigorous and bushy. The stems are not too stiff, so it can easily be trained over an arch or pergola. It looks particularly attractive tumbling over a fence or trellis.
