    Getting the most from your new Rose

    Where to plant

    Choose an open, sunny position with free-draining soil.  Avoid planting where roses have grown before or transfer fresh soil to the site.  HT & Floribunda roses can be planted in mixed borders or alongside other roses.

    Planting

    Roses love organic matter, so mix well-rotten manure, leaf mould or compost into the soil. Water thoroughly before planting.  Make a hole big enough not to disturb the root ball.  Remove from the pot and ensure the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil.  Back-fill soil mixed with a good fertilizer, then firm.  Water thoroughly.

    Aftercare

    Water well until established.  Mulching will keep the soil weed-free and moist.  For best results feed your roses with fertilizer in spring and again in summer.  Remove faded flowers to encourage speedy repeat flowering.

    Simple Pruning

    Prune your rose in March or before new growth by removing and dead or very thin branches and reducing the height by 1/3 to 2/3 of the previous growth.
