Stamford's Sanctuary climbing rose produces clusters of beautiful yellow fully double blooms with a moderate perfume, dark green foliage, ideal as a pillar rose.
The rose 'Stamford's Sanctuary' has been commissioned by the National Trust's Dunham Massey in Cheshire, as part of the Trust commemorations marking the centenary of the First World War. Between 1917 and 1919 Dunham Masset became teh Stamford Military Hospital, where 282 wounded 'Tommies' from the trenches were cared for. Stamford's Sanctuary will be a lasting legacy to its role as a refuge from the horrors of war.

Containerised roses are available throughout the year (although there are more available in the summer months for various reasons) and are roses that we have planted into containers during the winter months, when the plants are dormant. If purchasing a container rose early in the year, it is advisable to wait until after June before planting out into the garden. This is to give the roots of newly potted roses a chance to establish. In summer months containerised roses must be watered daily to ensure good health and maximum blooms. The advantage of buying a rose in a pot is that you can select the plant yourself during a visit to our nursery and gardens, giving you the opportunity to see the rose in flower prior to purchasing. Containerised roses are available for delivery within 7-10 days.
How to plant a rose bought in a container
The same depth applies for a rose bought in a container, with the first inch or so of the branches below soil level, and the hole wide enough for the root ball, there is no need to tease the roots out but better to leave the root ball intact. If purchased early in the summer season (before June) it is wise to leave the rose in its pot to give the roots time to establish.
