Burnet rose (Hedging)

Rosa pimpinellifolia

Hardy Shrub

A dense, thorny thicket of hedging provides not only an effective deterrent at a boundary, it also gives colour and interest throughout the whole of spring, summer and autumn. Burnet Roses are lower growing so that they won't block out light and during May and June they are covered in white flowers that have a very sweet scent. In autumn the flowers will have developed into shiny purple-black hips which are often appreciated by wildlife. Supplied as 50 - 80cm bareroots (20 - 31") Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 120cm (47"). Planting Distance: 50cm (20"). (3 plants per metre for a single line hedge)

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant bareroot roses at the earliest opportunity following delivery. To avoid the risk from the build-up of harmful soil organisms and disease, choose an open position in full sun that has not been planted with roses in recent years. Roses enjoy a rich, fertile, well drained soil. Dig in plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting roses and add a small handful of granular fertiliser to the planting hole.
Feed and water rose plants regularly .In late summer, begin pruning rugosa roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.
