Alfred and Margaret Bent started growing in 1937 and we've been hard at work ever since. With over 75 years experience we've never forgotten our roots as plant people and remain as dedicated as ever to providing the best quality plants in an exceptional environment.
It sometimes comes as a surprise to learn that the majority of plants sold at Bents are grown on our very own on-site nurseries. We have almost 4 acres of specialist growing facilities with a team of dedicated growers who are busy potting, feeding, pruning and preparing our plants on a daily basis.
And from nursery to plant area, the level of expertise is the same with our horticultural experts always on hand to offer help and advice with any planting query.
Our commitment is clear. We continually strive to grow and produce high quality, strong, healthy and attractive plants fresh from our nursery for you to enjoy in your garden.
Pest & Disease
- Spray with a contact insecticide or rub off with your fingers as soon as seen.
- Contact insecticides are faster acting than systemic ones and help target just the pest you want to kill - however they must hit the insect you want to kill.
- Spray with a systemic fungicide as soon as seen.
- Mulch heavily under the plant in the Spring as this will reduce transfer of overwintered spores onto foliage & improve the soil / reduce the need for water.
- Clear fallen leaves in order to prevent the disease spreading.
- Sometimes lower leaves on roses will develop spots as they die off - this is often indicative that the plant is uner-fed.
- Spray with a systemic fungicide at first signs (orange pustules under the leaf).
- Avoid water stress by mulching and irrigation to prevent.
- Spray with a systemic fungicide at the first signs (Grey / White powder on leaves)
- Use a big pot as roses have substantial root systems and a John Innes / multipurpose compost.
- Roses are greedy, so feed regularly right the way through the growing season.
- Remember, because you are watering a pot regularly you are washing the food through. Therefore you need to feed more often to compensate.
- Use Top Rose / Westland Rose Food or the cslow release rose food.
