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 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 floribunda 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.

  1. A perfect rose

    By Amy Shoesmith 31-12-2011

    I bought this rose two years ago. The scent is lovely and the flowers are large and rich coloured, and last well when cut, and have nice long stems which make them superb for flower arranging. The nicest surprise were the two roses which were ready to pick for Christmas day. It is very easy to look after, I haven't really done anything for it since I bought it, and the leaves still look very dark green and healthy. I have just bought two more for gifts for other people. Highly recommended!
