Bare Root Dog Rose
(Rosa canina)

Rosa Canina is an attractive, native species of hedging that boasts delicately fragranced pink/white flowers in the summer, that then give way to berry-looking rose hips.

Bare Root Dog Rose plants are only available to buy and plant from November - March, but can be pre-ordered any time outside of the bare root season.

The Dog Rose is a tough, native hedge that is well-known for its prickly, but lovely, growing habit. It is most grown as an informal garden shrub, and makes an ideal intruder deterrent plant, as the thorns create an impenetrable barrier. You can leave it to grow wonderfully on its own or create a nice mixed hedge with other native hedging.

As it has a very dense nature, the Rosa canina makes a wonderful shelter for wildlife, who adore the vitamin-C rich berries - these berries are also edible for humans and are known to make fantastic jam, as well as being commonly used to make rosehip oil.

It will grow about 40-60cm per year, and is very fast-growing, meaning it is a rambling shrub that will quickly become bushy and thick. Make sure you plant your bare root Dog Rose plant as soon as possible after being delivered, as the roots are tender and cannot be left to dry out.

The Rosa canina plant will grow best in moist, but well-drained soil. It will thrive best in a sunny position but can still be placed in a partially shaded area. Being low maintenance, it is a hardy shrub that can easily tolerate strong winds, meaning it can grow well near the coast- this makes it the perfect choice if being faced with some exposed coastal garden space.

  • Growth height: Fast (40-60cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 2.5m+ Tall
  • Soil Type: Normal
  • Exposure: Coastal, Exposed, Inland
  • Aspect: Semi-shade, Sun
  • Evergreen foliage? No

As soon as you receive your bare root plant, place it into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours. The roots must be wet when planted.

Your Dog Rose will need to be pruned in late Summer for general trimming, and in late Autumn/Winter if carrying out renovation.

Root Types Summary

  • Bare Root
    Bare Root

    Field grown, bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from autumn to spring. We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the season but they can be pre-ordered in summer. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options.

  • Pot Grown
    Pot Grown

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and make a convenient option. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements.

  • Root Ball
    Root Ball

    Also field grown, root ball plants are scooped out of the ground using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks. They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly.

  • Instant Hedging
    Instant Hedging

    Grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season. Our instant hegding troughs create a dramatic, instant hedge effect.
