Description

The prestigious Rose of the Year Award is highly prized by growers of promising new varieties. Bred by Colin Dickson, Rose 'It's A Wonderful Life' has been singled out for this accolade in 2022 for its exceptional beauty and garden performance! A profusion of apricot, pink blooms with over 60 petals per flower are borne throughout summer, with new blooms replacing those that fade. The blooms vary in their colour as temperatures fluctuate throughout the growing season.

This spectacular floribunda rose has an upright habit, with dark, glossy foliage that lasts holds well on the plant, remaining until late in the season. Rigorous trials, lasting over 2 years, demonstrated that this robust variety is strong growing and disease free. A worthy addition to patio planters, rose beds and mixed borders where it will become a treasured focal point throughout the summer months. Height and spread:100cm (39").


1 bare root rose plant (KC0794)

How to Grow
Your bare roots should be planted at the earliest opportunity following delivery. Once planted, they will remain in their dormant state until the spring. Above ground you won't see much happening over the winter, but the roots will be establishing ready for your roses to grow away quickly once the warmer weather arrives. 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.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

More Info
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 winter, begin pruning roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then reduce strong young stems by up to a third of their length. 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.
