Planting roses in your garden
Roses grown in pots are available all year round at Rosarium Lottum. Before you make your choice, it is important that you take a good look at the different varieties of roses. In particular, the scent, color and flower shape are often taste-related. The best thing to do is to come and have a look in our Rosarium where you can admire most of the species in real life and judge them on their health and flowering power. This gives a completely different experience than when you pick a rose based on a photo. Many times your selected potted rose is grown in stock and you can buy it immediately for immediate planting.
The entire range of “bare root” roses is available from mid-October to mid/end of April and can also be sent by mail. You can order your “bare root” roses year-round through the web store. These roses are then reserved for you and delivered in the fall or spring. If there is frost we will not send roses. Of course, you can also simply pick up your order at our facility. However, it is advisable that you order the roses in advance, so you can be sure that the order will be ready for you when you come to pick it up.
Bare-root roses can be planted between October and late April.
Roses in container pots can be planted year-round, provided the soil is frost-free.
Roses will grow in almost any garden, as long as the soil is well-tilled and contains the necessary nutrients. Turning over the soil and applying organic fertilizers such as cow manure, dried cow manure is good for all soil types. On light sandy soil organic manure decomposes much faster than on heavy clay soil, this should be taken into account with plants.
