Retailer launches autumn rose range in eco-friendly pots

Notcutts has launched an exclusive eco-friendly autumn rose collection, in conjunction with rose supplier brand Mattocks, which the garden centre chain used to own.

The Autumn Rose NaturePot comes in a biodegradable ready-to-plant pot, labelled with a 100 per cent recyclable wrap.

The NaturePot is made of rice husks and is designed to be planted directly into the soil.

The roses are packaged in recyclable polypropylene. There are 60 bush and climbing rose varieties in the range.

Notcutts plant buyer Colin Dale said: "The NaturePot embodies the sort of product innovation that we are known for and that our customers love. It combines our reputation for great plantsmanship, our focus on the customer experience both in-store and at home, and our continued commitment to the environment."

Prices are £12.99 for climbers and £11.99 for bush varieties.
