I want to get a Rubt Wedding Rose for my PILs ruby wedding present, in September.

Gluttenous gardener do a nivce gift set, for a significant price.

David Austin Roses sell them: but not for delivery until November.

Any suggestions? do they really need to be planted in November? Should I wait till then to get it? I'd love to give it to them in Sept on the date.

softfroggie - can't answer that but would love to know also, as it's my parents 40th in September too!!! Great idea for a present, what date is your inlaws annivesary?

My parents will be celebrating their 40th too in October and had started looking at this idea. I looked at (my links don't seem to be working at the mo so you can always copy and paste if it doesn't) and they say available from Autumn (which could mean sept ?). Its v. reasonable too.

thanks Hazellnut, I'll give them a call and see if we can get it in time.

Misty: 18 Sept. I'd been racking my brains for a while as MIL's been going on about how she'll be celebrating, came up with the plan a few months ago, but not found where I could get one from. She's the kind of person who likes everything to be appropriate.

I bought one for my parents in July a couple of years ago for their 40th. Spookily I was just talking about this today to someone. It is flourishing.

We found one at a local garden centre - but had to hunt round a few as some had cut the roses right back - a twig in a pot didn't look as nice !
For info - it only cost about £7

There are also other types too - we also bought them 2 Happy Anniversay roses
