Packing Methods

All roses are carefully packed and individually labelled for planting convenience and safe transit. Roses are suitably wrapped and sealed to retain moisture and packed in a cardboard carton for posting. Roses travel extremely well and are sent by us throughout Australia. They should remain fresh for at least two weeks whilst in transit. When your plants arrive unpack the parcel immediately and soak the roses in water overnight. When planting do not allow to dry out.

All perennial and peonies are carefully packed and individually labelled for planting convenience and safe transit. When your plants arrive unpack the parcel immediately and water well. You may plant out at your leisure and water on a regular basis until plants have settled in.


Our range is very extensive and it is difficult to predict in advance our customer’s requirements. Occasionally a variety becomes sold out. In case we are unable to supply a product in your order please list any substitutes that would be suitable. If substitutes are not listed, then we will not substitute unavailable products. Unavailable products will be left in your order with a note they are unavailable.  You will not be charged for unavailable products.

*Please note our catalogs are produced well before our crop is dug. If plants are not mature or in top order we will withdraw from sale until next year.

Size and Quality

Our range of roses is very diverse, from Modern vigorous Hybrids to Old Fashioned to the very Ancient China and Species Roses. The saleable size of certain varieties varies considerably which should be taken into consideration if you are ordering different types of roses. Bare rooted rose plants are generally 30 – 40cm long with one, two or three stems. In the first stages of growth, many varieties only produce one stem. Every care is taken to ensure only the best quality plants available of each variety are dispatched in your order.


Here at Mistydowns we make every effort to supply plants of suitable quality and of the variety specified at time of sale. Our roses, perennials and peonies are packed with care and should arrive in good condition. If you have any doubts about the condition or quality please contact us within 48 hours of receiving your delivery.

Losses – Mistydowns guarantee applies until the bare root plant has broken dormancy and produced foliage. Plants are a living product, its performance will depend on the growing conditions and how it is cared for, which are factors beyond our control. We cannot therefore automatically accept responsibility for losses. If your plant has received our recommended care and doesn’t perform to your satisfaction, please speak to one of our friendly staff on (03) 5373 8035 as soon as possible. We do not guarantee roses planted away from the residence of the purchaser.

All claims must be made before the 30th of October in the year of purchase. We will require photo verifications and in some cases may request return of plants with a soil sample. If necessary replacements will be provided in the current season or the following winter.

Incorrect variety – If you believe an incorrect or incorrectly labelled variety has been delivered to you, please contact us during the summer of the year of purchase and we will replace it the following winter season if available. If a variety will not be available the following season a credit will be issued. Photographic proof of the rose clearly showing Mistydowns label will be required.
