Rosewood Gardens is a Boutique Rose Nursery with the Largest Selection of English Roses in the Capital District.


Important Information!

We are pleased to announce an upcoming addition to our family! Our daughter is having a baby! As I will be spending time with them in Virginia, this will change how we operate Rosewood Gardens for the 2017 season.

Since we still want to provide high quality potted David Austin English roses to our customers, we encourage you to place your order early. These will be potted up and reserved for you for pick up at the end of May, through the first weekend in June. After that time, we will be on an appointment basis. That way we will have the flexibility necessary to accommodate our growing family, as well as meet the rose needs of our customers in a more personal way.


Hours

We are open from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm on the following dates:

Thursday, May 18 to Saturday, May 20
Thursday, May 25 to Saturday, May 27
Memorial Day, Monday, May 29
Thursday, June 1 to Saturday, June 3

For the remainder of the season, we will be available on an appointment basis.

English Rose Sales

We have the largest selection of David Austin English Roses in the Northeast! English Roses are a cross between old-fashioned and modern roses. They have the exquisite flower form, the hardiness, and the disease resistance of the older varieties, along with the wider color range of the modern floribundas and hybrid tea roses. They are bred to have an attractive bushy shape, and to bloom repeatedly throughout the growing season. Most importantly, they are fragrant! Our roses are 2-3 year old plants potted in David Austin's signature 5 gallon pots! Price: $42 each (plus tax) We do not ship roses.

Important: It should be noted that David Austin recommends planting in groups of 3-5 roses of the same variety. This creates the large, sumptuous rose bushes that gardeners desire, and is especially true here because of the short growing season in the Northeast. For smaller gardens, 2 or 3 of a single variety works well. (We find that our customers are more satisfied with the result when they follow this suggestion, rather than when they are when buying a single rose.) Call Rosewood Gardens to make an appointment to come and select your new English Roses! (518) 275-1800
