Whartons has introduced a next day delivery service for trade customers who want smaller numbers of bare-root roses quickly for planting jobs.
 
Customers may order by 10am one day and receive the roses the next day.  The order can be as few as five roses per variety in outers of 30 plants. The service has a packing and delivery charge of £9.95.

Norfolk-grown roses are picked from Whartons' temperature and humidity-controlled stores where the plants are kept dormant, from November to April.

Larger orders of bare-root roses or potted roses are delivered to most parts of the UK mainland free of charge for one trolley of 500 bare root plants, or 120 in pots, by their own contracted vehicles.
 
Whartons grows 1.4 million roses in almost 500 varieties annually for the wholesale trade.
