Dog rose (Hedging)

Rosa canina

Hardy Shrub

Possibly the simplest form of all roses and still the most effective as a hedging plant.The Dog Rose, Rosa canina has long, thorny stems that grow vigorously every year to form a dense thicket which is the perfect barrier/deterrent hedge. Pale pink or white flowers cover the hedge in summer, providing a touch of colour and these will develop into bright red hips by autumn which are enjoyed by wildlife. Supplied as 60 - 90cm bareroots (24 - 35") Height: 400cm (157"). Spread: 250cm (98"). 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.
