Roses Extra Information
Limestone Coast Roses is one of Australia’s
largest suppliers of roses. Located in the rich, volcanic soils of
South Australia’s Limestone Coast Region, just outside Mount Gambier, it
has a retail Rose Nursery supplying both Bare rooted in winter and
Potted roses all year round.
When ordering roses please use this Rose Ordering to order to ensure you get the right tree for you! Otherwise you can phone us on (08) 8888 8888 to place your order over the phone. Please have your credit or debit master card with you for payment. You may refer to the "complete limestone coast roses list" when ordering to ensure you have the correct roses in mind.
We aim to offer the lowest priced mail order roses in Australia and supply only top quality 2 year old roses.
Our bush rose prices remain at $10.95 with Plant Breeders Right (PBR) and charity/ Royalty varieties the cost is a little more than that.
We take pride in growing our roses ‘how roses used to be grown’ so you the customer get very good quality roses. Our digging of dormant (bare rooted) roses commences around Mid May depending on the season and goes on right through until the last row is lifted, which can be in August. Late orders after our cut off date will be despatched as quickly as possible and in the order in which they come in, so make sure you get in early!
Postage and Handling
We will give our customers a courtesy phone call or email to let you know your order is ready to be wrapped. This also allows the opportunity to add any last requests to your order. Let’s face it who doesn’t want to squeeze in an extra rose or 3 !!
We wrap the roses in such a way to keep the costs to a minimum, so you are not paying for air. We charge you what Australia Post / couriers charges us and we are continually amazed at how well the post is very economical. We can give you an indicative price for the same amount of roses to your order from last season to a similar postcode to yours if you wish.
Remember roses are a living plant and we dig them up especially for you. The roses you order may contain a variety that is dug from Row 1, row 100 and Row 800, therefore we have to dig the entire rows in sequence and collate your order from there. Please do not be concerned if you have not heard from us, we will be busy getting your order together and often it can be that last illusive one that can hold up your order.
Sometimes we are challenged by Mother Nature and we have installed extra drainage again to allow the tractors to undercut even when we have heavy rain, as this has caused delays in past seasons.
