Traditionally, only bare root roses are posted from November to March but at C&K Jones, we will pot and post any rose at any time of the year (subject to availability). After all, a rose can make the ideal gift for Weddings, Christenings, Birthdays, and sometimes a rose is the perfect Memorial for a loved one or a way to symbolise grief.
The cost of the potted rose is more than bare root roses for a variety of reasons including a charge for the pot, compost, maintenance and overall care etc. It is worth remembering that the total weight of pot plus soil plus tailormade package may exceed 3kg which means higher delivery charges.
The main advantage to bare root roses is they are cheaper and easier to handle. The roses can also be stored in their packaging for a short time (up to 1 week) providing the roots are kept damp and free from the frost.
A potted rose purchased online can be a convenient and exciting way to celebrate a special occasion. We offer a free personalised message service.
It is our hope that the convenience and immediacy of a delivered rose in a pot with a personalised message will compensate for the relatively high cost of packaging and carriage.
