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.
