Rose Naming

A Unique Way to show someone you care.

For countless generations, the rose has been the favourite flower chosen to mark a special occasion...and continues to be so.

In 1964 Paul Chessum started growing Roses in his parent’s back garden.  Over the past 50+ years Paul has grown and sold in excess of 20 million roses.  Paul formed World of Roses in 2002 in order to sell directly to the consumer. 

In the last 15 + years World of Roses has introduced over 50 new exclusive Rose varieties, some of which are to raise money for charity, some to mark a special event but many more are to celebrate the life or achievements of an individual.    

We have been fortunate to be able to help people celebrate a wide range of special events including: -

  • Anniversaries
  • Birthdays
  • Births
  • Christenings
  • Graduations
  • Special Achievements
  • Weddings

We can help you celebrate a special event or a special person by personally naming an exclusive new Rose Variety.

A World of Choice

Whatever the time of year, there is always a tremendous range of roses waiting to be named. Each rose is carefully cultivated and nurtured, rooted in the years of horticultural experience and skill only found at World of Roses. From traditional varieties to the more contemporary, each rose is carefully nourished, guaranteeing you a fine, strong specimen.

How it Works?

World of Roses works closely with several UK Rose Breeders who develop ranges of new roses each year.  We select limited numbers from the 1000’s that we view to be grown on at our Nursery.  We test these varieties to ensure that they are top quality varieties suitable for UK gardens’

We only offer a new exclusive rose once it has passed this rigorous testing procedure.  This ensures that the rose you select will be a superb variety.

What do you get in our Rose Naming Package?

  • A framed photograph of your new rose.
  • A Rose Naming Certificate from World of Roses.
  • 25 roses, potted into a 3L pot ready for planting in a garden, or patio container.
  • Beautiful hand gift-wrapping (including individual gift-cards with a message) with each rose.
  • Delivery of each rose to a single or multiple UK addresses.

We are able to offer additional extras, such as engraved plaques and plinths for your new roses.  Please discuss the options with me to create your perfect package!
