Updated information.  MAY 2024

The container rose planting season is now upon us. Do not be tempted to buy ‘job lots’ of bare root roses, it just is not worth buying bare root plants out of season.  If you wish to purchase bare root then wait until the Autumn, when you will be able to purchase freshly produced plants ready for planting. Roses for this spring/summer will have been containerised some months ago, and the grower/nursery/garden centre who you purchase from will advise you if they feel they need to remain in their containers a little longer. They will continue to  establish, and will bloom in the next few months and give you a colourful garden this summer and most well into the autumn. Containerised roses will in general be more expensive and more costly to send. Do take particular care to follow the instructions on how to plant them as it is essential that the soil does not come away from the roots.  Please give British growers/suppliers a boost by purchasing from those listed on this website.

Unfortunately this site is still not as up to date as I would wish, as  some is still based on the 38th Edition* of Find That Rose covering season Autumn 2020-Summer 2021; most growers have now given me updated details of the varieties they are now offering. information below.

All contributors have now been circulated to invite them to submit their latest information to cover Autumn 2024-Summer 2025. This information will be included on the website as received. Equally if you cannot find the information you need on the site, then please do use the contact form to submit your question.

AS INDICATED ALL SUPPLIERS LISTED ON THE SITE HAVE BEEN INVITED TO UPDATE THEIR VARIETIES, THOSE WHO HAVE SUPPLIED THEIR LIST  YOU WILL FIND NOTED IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL GROWERS DETAILS.  MORE ARE COMING FORWARD SO PLEASE GO BACK TO THE SITE FREQUENTLY.

This site will still prove useful as a  majority of the varieties listed with growers will be the same . New varieties are always being added; the site  includes the Rose of The Year 2022 ‘ It’s A Wonderful Life ‘  ‘Peach Melba ‘ Rose of The Year for 2023 and  ‘Meteor’ Rose of The Year for 2024. The Information on the ROTY for 2025 is included but growers details have still to be included, and publicity for the variety with the name will be general knowledge in due course. This is the rose which comes onto the market this Autumn when it can be purchased, so it will bloom in your garden in 2025!

Do also remember that just because a name of a rose comes up on the internet it doesn’t necessarily mean it is in commerce in the U.K.

UPDATING FOR AUTUMN 2024-SUMMER 2025. If  you are a grower/supplier and can supply a ‘proper’ list of varieties which have been grown in the U.K and would like to be included, please use CONTACT FORM to ask for further information.

 *Find That Rose was a published booklet for over 38 years (the first of the Finder nursery books) but the cost etc. has meant the website is now the only way to obtain the basic information the book was based on; varieties and growers.

The original domain for this site was www.findthatrose.net.  Using www.findthatrose.co.uk is better as it identifies where this site is based.

Every effort is made to be as accurate as possible and is produced with the complete support of those growers and outlets featured.  In many  cases other rose finding sites just indicate the name of a variety and little else.  Many varieties cease to be produced each season as new varieties  take their place. Some sites give names of varieties no longer in production and many are not U.K. based.

I am not promoting the the book as this is now out of date, but will willingly try to help with any questions and to see if I can locate new varieties which have not been covered. Please use the Contact form. .
