Potted Floribunda Roses

Floribunda roses are bush roses and thus ideal for borders and large patio pots, and can be planted straight away

For more information on the different types of roses we offer and therefore what may be most suitable for your garden, see our handy guide.

How will my potted rose arrive?

Our roses are cut back for the Winter to promote root growth, thus will arrive with short but healthy stems between October and March. Roses in April and May would be expected to have new growth and leaves, and then between May and September buds and blooms. *Please note: These are estimates and can vary due to weather conditions and exact variety of rose.

Your rose will be in a large 5.5L container, which is recyclable and thus can be disposed of accordingly in your home recycling bin.

We take care to be as sustainable as possible here at English Roses, and so avoid single use plastics at all costs. Our packaging is therefore fully recyclable, even down to the strapping on our cardboard boxes. Our gift wrapping also contains natural materials, many of which can be repurposed and reused.

    This was a gift and the recipient said what great condition the rose was in and that it will be something she can enjoy for years to come.

  2. Michelle Benton

  3. Karen Hunt

    Only received today but arrived in really good condition

  4. Beverly Titley

    I was very impressed on how the rose was packaged and how established it was for the price. There are even tiny buds ready to bloom.
    We took my mother-in-law to choose a pot percivically for the rose, and we planted it with some of the rose feed.
    It is placed in her front garden, pride of place looking very healthy, and had a good watering over the weekend with rain water.

    Bought for an 80th birthday, so unfortunately not for myself! The rose was in bloom and a good healthy size. My friends Mum was absolutely delighted with it.

Delighted with the purchase.
