Roses are easy to look after. They like to grow in a humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil of any type and prefer full sun. Please note roses sent November - March will be sent as recently potted plants that have been pruned hard back (roots and shoots)

Planting

  • Water the rose thoroughly while it’s still in its pot or dunk a bare root one in a bucket of water for 20-30 minutes
  • Pick your spot in the garden and make sure it’s clear of weeds
  • Dig a hole that will take the roses root mass easily
  • Use a fork to loosen the soil at the base of the hole so roots can grow away easily
  • Add manure to the hole if you can get it or Camelot Horse Manure compost
  • Sprinkle Rootgrow in the hole as per the manufacturer’s instructions, this aids root development and leads to a healthier plant
  • Position your rose in the hole so that it’s just slightly lower than the surrounding ground surface
  • Backfill with the soil taken out to dig the hole
  • Firm in by gently standing on the soil to ensure the rose is secure and that there are no air pockets.
  • Water well.

Aftercare

  • Any new rose needs to be watered well until it is established, probably the first two years. Once established you will need to water still to promote a healthy plant that will flower over a long period. The amount depends on rainfall and heat. Once a week should be sufficient but if flowers wilt in extreme heat then they need a good soaking at the roots more frequently.
  • Pay special attention to climbers planted against a wall, roses in pots or in sandy soil with both watering and feeding.
  • Feed your roses twice a year, with After Plant Rose Food once in March/April at the start of the growing season and then again in late July after the first blooms to encourage stronger repeat flowering.
  • Mulch with bark chippings in early spring to suppress weeds and increase water retention
  • Spray to control pests and disease with RoseClear
  • Deadhead throughout the growing season to encourage repeat flowering and keep the rose in good shape.
