[From the Website of Robert Mattock Roses:] Robert Hunter (1927 - 2002) Internationally acclaimed and consummate expert in the actual growing of roses. After the demise of the mail order business and the sale of the family’s garden centre founded with his wife, Christine, his own nursery business "Robert Mattock Roses" to exploit his innovative growing technique that permits rose trees to be grown in pots.

[From :] The family rose-growing tradition that started in Headington is now carried on by the business called Robert Mattock Roses at Lodge Hill. Robert Hunter Mattock died in 2002, and the business is now run by Robert Ernest Mattock, the great-great-grandson of the John Mattock who started the business in Headington. About 90% of all the roses at the Chelsea Flower Show are still produced today at Lodge Hill.

Mature & Semi Mature Roses
Robert Mattock uses a unique growing technique that produces show-quality blooms on mature specimen plants in small, light and easily manageable pots. His roses have featured in many Gold Medal-winning Chelsea Show gardens and are high on the 'must-have' lists of numerous top designers, florists and celebrity gardeners.

Living Design Statements - Robert Mattock Roses flourish in Pots
Because these bespoke roses have already been established in their pots, you do not need to be a gardener to make them grow, or to appreciate the sheer beauty of their flowers. All the work has been done for you - except, perhaps, for watering them and casting them the occasional adoring glance.
Even the busiest lifestyle can accommodate these spectacular living design statements: their palette and perfume can be relished in a variety of locations, morning, noon, evening or night, by moving their pots from balcony to dining room and from drawing room to terrace.

Landscape and Garden Design
Our unique technique involves root pruning and a special compost to produce a dense compact root ball of fibrous root which facilitates rapid uptake of water and nutrients; the essentials for producing both show quality blooms and enabling the rapid establishment of mature specimens when planted out.
