Sow Rose seeds from January to May on the surface of a good seed compost and lightly cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 18-20C (64-68F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the compost damp and do not exclude light as this aids germination, which usually takes up to 30-90 days.


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Rose plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun on any moist, rich fertile, well drained soil at a distance of 35cm (14") apart.

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 species roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then reduce all stems by up to a third of their length. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.

  1. Great little roses

    By Rebecca Southall 23-04-2016

    I grew these last year. Out of 20 seeds I ended up with 18 roses. They do take a while to germinate. This year they are quite a decent size. Very pretty little flowers.

  2. Hard work, difficult but satisfying

    By Katherine Melia 11-07-2013

    Propagated forever (well it felt like it!) and only got 5 seedlings, of which four survived and one has now flowered at about 6" tall. Satisfying after the slog but don't expect to fill you garden with these!
