David Austin Rose Pre-Order for Spring 2020

Welcome to the World of David Austin Roses!

We are excited to offer a new Pre-Order of David Austin roses for pick-up or shipping in early spring 2020.

David Austin roses are some of the most renowned and beloved roses in the world. Since the 1950s David Austin has been working to combine the beauty and romance of old roses with the performance of modern roses. More specifically his goal has been to bring together the flower forms and fragrance of old roses with the wider colour range and repeat-flowering of modern roses.

You need only look at the photographs and to grow your first David Austin rose to understand that these English roses are unique in the rose world. They will quickly grow into magnificent shrubs and climbers that will transform your garden with their old world charm, fragrance, and performance.

Characteristics of David Austin Roses:

  • Form: David Austin roses tend to grow as shapely shrubs with a bushy mounding or arching growth habit. The climbers are strong and vigorous usually with flowering down to the base.
  • Flowers: A wide range of colours with unique multi-petaled blooms.
  • Fragrance: Renowned for their strong and diverse fragrances including old rose, tea, myrrh, fruity, and musk.
  • Repeat-flowering: Cultivars will repeat flower providing a long season of interest.
  • Design Potential: Highly versatile for different garden styles and uses including mixed flower beds, traditional rose borders, fragrant hedges, large pots and containers, for the cutting garden, and for large landscape plantings.
  • Health: Bred for vigour and garden performance with excellent disease resistance. Every cultivar is trialled under rigorous conditions for eight years before being introduced to the gardening public.

DAME JUDI DENCH – New for 2020!

Rich apricot-orange blooms, filled with many ruffled petals

A beautiful rose; the blooms are a particularly rich shade of apricot-orange, paling prettily towards the edges. Beginning as striking, red-tipped buds they gradually open to reveal large informal rosettes, each with ruffled petals and a button eye. They are very resistant to rain damage and the petals drop neatly. There is a light, but lovely, fresh Tea fragrance. A vigorous grower, it produces strong, arching stems which, over time, form an attractive mound of blooms. Named after one of Britain’s most beloved stars of stage and screen. David Austin, 2017.

Ordering, Pick-Up, and Shipping Details

Local Pick-Up Customers: Pick-up will begin in early to mid March. Roses will be provided potted in fibre pots. We recommend planting as soon as possible for best establishment.

Mail Order Customers: Shipping will take place from March to early April as soon as your weather conditions are safe for shipping and about to be warm enough to plant. Roses can be planted as soon as the ground is workable in early spring. They are sent bare root for immediate planting.

If you live in a colder region such as zone 4 or 5, please be prepared to provide a little extra care for your roses on arrival if necessary. In a perfect world you will have a reasonable and timely transition from winter to early spring allowing us to ship to you before your roses break dormancy in our mild West Coast climate and just as the ground thaws allowing you to plant right away. Should weather not cooperate, we will have to play it by ear to select the best ship timing. This may require you to store your roses in a spare fridge or other frost-free location or pot up in a container and protect from frost until your spring gets underway and you can plant in the garden.

Our pre-orders are administered in a separate system from our mail order site which cannot quote exact shipping rates. We expect a shipment of 1-3 roses would cost about $30-$50 depending on how many roses you choose and how far you are from BC. Quite distant or very rural locations will cost at the upper end of the scale. Orders greater than 3 roses would cost incrementally more as weight and box sizes increase. Please note that we do not make money on shipping and charge only to cover our costs.

In order to streamline the shipping process for the upcoming season, all mail order customers will be asked to provide full address information and a shipping deposit of $50. Once your roses have shipped, we will either refund the remainder of your deposit if the shipping is less or send you a PayPal money request if the shipping is more which you can pay with a credit card or PayPal account. We expect that in most cases we will be refunding a portion of your deposit.

Please note your rose selections and then click on the link to go to the ordering page.
