  1. Harlow Carr

    Harlow Carr

    English Standard Rose
    A tough and particularly healthy little rose that bears flowers of the most perfect formation - shallow cups of the purest rose pink. These hold their form to the end; the occasional petal falling back to give a pleasing effect. The young foliage is bronze at first, later becoming green. There is a strong, pure Old Rose fragrance that has been described as reminiscent of rose-based cosmetics. .

  2. Lady of Shalott

    Lady of Shalott

    English Standard Rose
    The young buds are a rich orange-red. These open to form chalice-shaped blooms, filled with loosely arranged petals. Each petal has a salmon-pink upper side which contrasts beautifully with the attractive golden-yellow reverse. The chalice shape means that the undersides of the petals are clearly seen, revealing glimpses of the deeper apricot colour in the heart of the bloom. There is a pleasant, warm tea fragrance, with hints of spiced apple and cloves. This rose promises to be one of the most robust roses in our collection. It is highly resistant to disease and it will bloom with unusual continuity throughout the season. Indeed, it is an ideal rose for the inexperienced gardener.

  1. Claire Austin

    Claire Austin

    English Standard Rose
    There is something a little special about white roses - they are all purity and light - and yet really good white roses are rare among English Roses and Hybrid Tea Roses alike. This is because white roses are very difficult to breed. 'Claire Austin' bears pleasingly cupped buds of a pale lemon shade which gradually open to form large, creamy white flowers of typical English Musk delicacy; their petals perfectly arranged in concentric circles, with a few more loosely arranged in the centre. They have a strong fragrance based on myrrh with dashes of meadowsweet, vanilla and heliotrope. Strong and particularly healthy. Undoubtedly one of our finest white roses to date. .

  2. Golden Celebration

    Golden Celebration

    English Standard Rose
    This is one of the largest-flowered of all our English Roses, excelling in all climates. The rich golden yellow flowers are in the form of giant, full-petalled cups. These are initially tea-scented but often develop a wonderful combination of Sauternes wine and strawberry. The flowers are held beautifully poised, slightly nodding on long arching branches. The ample foliage is large, glossy and light green, resisting disease well.

  2. Grace

    Grace

    English Standard Rose
    An excellent variety with flowers of a lovely pure apricot - darker in the middle, paler towards the edges; a colour that blends well with other shades, especially dark reds and purples. The unusual, narrow petals give this rose a very different appearance. They are very numerous, but neatly arranged into shallowly cupped blooms that slowly open to form perfect rosettes with the outer petals reflexed back. There is a delicious, warm and sensuous fragrance. Very healthy and repeat flowers well. .

  1. Darcey Bussell

    Darcey Bussell

    English Standard Rose
    Good red roses are never easy to breed, so we are particularly pleased to introduce 'Darcey Bussell', as we believe it is one of the best and most healthy red roses we have bred to date. Its beautiful flowers are produced freely and with excellent continuity. When young, their outer petals form a perfect ring around an inner cup; gradually opening out to form a perfect rosette. The colour is a deep rich crimson that takes on a tinge of mauve just before the petals drop. It has a pleasing, fruity fragrance with hints of green. .

    Jubilee Celebration

    English Standard Rose
    This is one of the finest roses we have introduced so far. Its large, domed flowers are of a lovely rich salmon-pink with tints of gold on the underside of the petals; each bloom being elegantly held well above the foliage. Despite the size of the flowers, they are produced with exceptional freedom and continuity. There is a strong, deliciously fruity scent with hints of fresh lemon and raspberry. It is very healthy and reliable with lush, green foliage.
