Hi just wondering which online companies are reputable and cheap for bareroot trees and roses.

I am new to this type of gardening. Would my local nursery do this or is it specific companies?

Not completely bare-root but I know a great online site for good cheap trees in little pots, I bought 9 trees from Coblands.co.uk earlier this year (3 for 2 and free delivery) and I was disappointed when they came as they seemed more dead than hibernating.  However, I planted them out and have to say they have established brilliantly. For instance, the 'dead' Japonica I bought in March has half covered a highand wide rose arbour in just 6 months and is still beautifully in bloom. The quality is far superior to any local garden centres... unless maybe the difference is that Coblands grow them hard and hardy whereas my local GC's seem to force and molly-coddle plants so they don't thrive in 'real' conditions.

I'm just reading the November edition of Gardeners World magazine. There is a feature on planting bare root roses with a list of suppliers
