                               CATALOGUE PRICES
The prices in this catalogue relate to bare rooted roses supplied in season (i.e end October to early
April). Containerised roses are available from approximately mid April for planting throughout
the late spring, summer and early autumn. Containerised roses extend the natural planting time
but are approximately 20% more expensive due to the extra costs involved. These extra costs
are the temporary pot; high quality soil based compost; and the nursery maintenance (such as
watering and spraying programme to keep them in tip-top condition). Sending costs are also
more than for bare-root plants. If you need more information on prices and varieties phone us on
01206 844008 or visit us at www.cantsroses.co.uk
We emphasise that not all varieties in this catalogue are available (including those marked New)
in containers, and some will sell out. If you require something for a special occasion why not pre-
book. Subject to stock we will be happy to reserve plants.
We offer a mail order service for all containerised roses except all forms of Standard see page 3 for
more information.

   feeding with a slow release fertilizer twice a year, and we also recommend a spraying programme.

            NEW ROSE IN OLD ROSE BEDS
   Sometimes disappointment can be caused by the planting of new
   rose trees into old rose beds as they never appear to thrive very well.                                %
                                                                                                   01206
   Whilst old soil will sustain existing roses (which have extensive
   root system to seek nourishment) new plants need to have fresh or
   revitalised soil in which to start life. So when planting new roses in
   old rose beds; filling in any gaps made by other roses dying, please
   remember to change some of the soil. For further information on
   preparation where roses have been planted for 6 years or more which
   you wish to replace, see page 34 (under Choosing site and preparing
