Rose 'The Fairy' (Polyantha) (Large Plant)


Hardy Shrub

This well known Polyantha Rose bears abundant sprays of small but fully double, pale pink, scentless blooms. Rose 'The Fairy' is later flowering than many varieties, blooming freely from late summer right through to autumn. The arching stems form a shapely, low growing, mound which is covered in plenty of glossy green foliage. This trouble free RHS AGM variety has a spreading habit that makes good ground cover or a prickly, low growing hedge. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 90cm (36").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Rosehips and petals can be used in making syrups and the petals will add flavour to cold drinks or fruit dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant 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 and deadhead faded flowers. When growing roses it is necessary to remove any suckers that arise from the base of the plant, below the graft union. In winter, begin pruning Polyantha roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then reduce the stems to 20cm (10") above ground level. Side shoots should be reduced to two buds. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.
