Rose cultivation is one of our oldest specialties – it’s a tradition that dates from way back. We are licensee of a.o. Meilland, Kordes and Tantau. Out of the immense range of roses we have selected for you 225 species and varieties of outstanding beauty, vigour, health and application possibilities. Our entire range can be found in our catalogue.

Most varieties are grown in full soil. They are delivered with bare roots and can only be planted from early November until early April. A number of species (especially the ground cover varieties) are planted in a pot. They can be planted all year through.

Our collection of roses has a number of subcategories:

·         Large-flowered roses (T)


Traditional border roses with large flowers; usually only one flower per stem; often fragrant. Depending on the variety, they reach a height from 60 up to 120 cm. Ideal as cut flowers.

·         Reblooming shrub roses (H)


Turn into beautiful shrubs that (like other blooming shrubs) can be planted alone or in groups. The single or half-filled flowers, growing in trusses, are smallish and often fragrant. The shrubs reach a height from 60 up to 200 cm.

·         Botanical shrub roses and their hybrids (BH)


Large shrubs that usually bloom only once, but borrow their ornamental value from their nice rose hips or their thorns. Single or filled flowers, sometimes fragrant. These roses are frequently used either for slope planting or for impenetrable planting, and can be planted alone or in groups. They are also used as climbing roses. Depending on their variety, they reach a height from 1 to 3 m.

·         Miniature roses (M)

Miniature roses reach a maximum height of merely 25 to 40 cm and are ideal as a potted plant in the front row of a border. These varieties are always grown in a pot.

·         Ground covering roses (R)


Thanks to their widespreading grow, these new rose shrubs are an ideal ground cover. They have been especially selected for their resistance against diseases and do not require a lot of care, which makes them perfectly suitable for public green areas. Rather small, single or filled flowers; maximum height between 60 and 80 cm. Most varieties are grown in a pot. These roses have not been budded onto a rootstock but grow on their own roots, which means they don’t have wildshoots.

·         Rugosa hybrids (RH)


Very strong varieties of the Japanese rosa pomifera, perfectly suitable for bed planting.
Single or half-filled flowers, followed by nice rose hips. They reach a maximum height of 60 to 80 cm and cover the soil very well.

·         Climbing roses (K)


Have long branches that can be trained upwards against walls, pergolas and fences. The rose ramblers even grow along trees, having branches that reach up to 6 or 8 m. We grow a large collection, ranging from single-flowered to strongly filled, ‘old-fashioned’ roses with the nicest scent.

·         Multifloral roses (F)


These roses usually have several medium-sized flowers per stem. They are perfect for bed planting and reach a height of 50 to 130 cm.

·         Nostalgia Roses and Romantica roses (RO)


Both groups consist of roses that combine the nostalgic flowershape and the scent of old roses with the prolonged blooming period and the disease resistance of modern roses. The flowers are usually strongly filled and have a wonderful scent. The lower-growing varieties are ideal as flowerbed roses, whereas the higher varieties grow into beautiful solitary shrubs or can be trained as climbing roses. We grow a collection of Tantau roses (Nostalgia Roses) and of Meilland roses (Romantica roses).

·         Stock roses and weeping roses (ST)


Roses from one of the above-mentioned groups, budded onto a rootstock of 100 to 125 cm (stock roses) or 150 to 160 cm (weeping roses). Some varieties are available in a pot.

Roses require a humid, humus-rich soil and prefer a sunny spot. If you take good care of them (pruning, fertilising, fighting diseases and parasites, removing withered  flowers etc.), they will add beautiful colours and smells to your garden during the entire summertime, until the winter arrives.

If you want to enjoy roses but don’t like the idea of an intense care, we suggest you select one of our Meilland roses. They grow on their own root (and therefore have no wildshoots), are very healthy (so you don’t have to fertilise them as often), and they don’t have to be pruned or plucked every year.

A number of roses from our collection carries the ADR label. ADR (Allgemeine Deutsche Rosenneuheitenprüfung) is one of the most strict rose inspections in the world. Bloom, colour, scent, growth shape, frostproofness and especially health are tested during several years and at 11 different spots. During that period, the ADR test varieties are not treated with pesticides. The roses that stand this very severe test, are awarded the ADR label.
