Rose 'Sunny Sky'

Rosa

Hardy Shrub

Honey yellow blooms turn to soft yellow on this elegant scented rose. Rose 'Sunny Sky' has rightly been voted Rose of the Year for 2016. Each bloom averages 10cm (4") across, bearing up to 30 petals for a stand out fruity fragrance. This low maintenance rose will produce really strong summer display for minimal effort thanks to strong disease resistance and vigorous, yet retained, growth. Simply snip away blooms once they finish in mid-summer and you'll be rewarded with a strong second flush in late summer, continuing into autumn. We've added this hardy rose to our range for its ease of care and strong performance - it s the perfect rose for novice and experienced gardeners alike. Planting roses is a sound investment for any garden, these long lived shrubs return each year and only require one simple pruning in late winter or early spring before growth starts again. Height 120cm (4'). Spread: 60cm (2').,

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. Stems of climbing roses will require training against a suitable support such as a pergola, fence or wall.
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 late summer begin pruning climbing roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged stems. For the first two years the remaining stems should be trained horizontally on wires. From the third year, the main stems can be reduced to maintain the plant within the available growing space. Side shoots should be reduced to 3 buds. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.
