surprisingly small roses

packaging was excellent but rose stems were rather small would be surprised if the roses flowered before autumn due to there size would need a really warm sunny summer to make them grow excellent customer services

Dear Mr Cook,
Thank your for your review, but were concerned to hear that you felt the roses were small. We pride ourselves on ensuring that every rose is top and root pruned and potted by one of our skilled nurserymen & women here on site. This is done to ensure that each rose achieves a good, healthy, bushy habit with plenty of flower, even in the first year. This can make the roses seem quite small when they are still dormant, but we find achieves a very good standard of rose. As well as the care leaflet included with the roses, to help with follow on care we have also made a short video about planting out your roses which can be seen at (This also helps to show the typical size of a dormant rose). If having taken the pruning etc into consideration, you feel that the roses are not to your satisfaction then please do contact us and we can organise replacing them for you.

Best wishes
Groves Nurseries
