This is the last quiet - or nearly quiet - month for us, before starting our digging season. 


We are busy in some maintenance jobs in the field and getting organised for winter: stock our supplies of boxes and packaging materials, cut rootstock for next year plants, contact casual employees for the next few months, empty and reorganise the big packaging shed... 


Our Potted Roses are giving us their last beautiful flowers before the cold season, and because we know how much you love roses, we've decided to offer you a 50% discount on all of them, for this month only. 


And it's not all.

Sunday 11th April we'll be open to public, being the 2nd Sunday of the month. 

It'll be our last Open Sunday for a while, as we we'll be busy digging and posting bare root roses from May to September, so... Here is our second surprise for you: 15% discount on all bare root orders received online or at the nursery (not on the phone) on 11th April, for 24 hours only. If orders are placed online, use the promo code APRIL11SALE at the check out.



- 50% off Potted Roses from the 1st to 30th April (online and at the nursery)

- 15% off bare root orders on Sunday 11th April, for 1 day only, using promo code APRIL11SALE at the checkout.

- We'll be open on Sunday 11th April, from 10am to 3pm: last opportunity to see all the rose varieties we grow in flower. 


 
 
 
Beautiful Autumn Rose Hips

We often don't see rose hips on our plants as we prefer pruning our roses to encourage more blooms,  but in Autumn, if you leave the spent bloom and remove only the old petal, you will see the base turning into a plump red ball. 

This is in essence the fruit of the rose.


Rose hips can range in colours, from a bright orange to red and sometimes purple. 

Most times they will be round, but they could also be oblong or even bottled shape.


Hips attract bird life to your garden, they are beautiful in an autumn themed flower arrangement, as Cindy Cross shows in this video using Rugosa Alba hips and Honey Dijon Roses.


Hips are also edible and are full of vitamin C and antioxidants.  Rugosa’s ones are particularly delicious (but do not harvest hips that have been sprayed with chemicals).

They can be used to make herbal teas, jams, jellies, syrups and soups. 


If you live in a cold area, wait until after the first frosts to harvest, to intensify their flavours.


Roses producing good hips are Rugosa Alba, Cupid Clg, Jens Munk, Rugspin and Scabrosa, only to name a few.
