In a recent survey, the rose was voted the nation's favourite flower so I'm thrilled that QVC is offering a very special collection of roses as Today's Special Value.
What I look for in a rose
To my mind, a good rose has to be easy to grow, flower all summer, look good in the garden, be great for picking and have a gorgeous scent. Our three roses have the lot!
My rose planting tip
You can grow roses in borders or individually in big pots on the patio (using John Innes compost no 3) but I've one special tip when planting.
Make sure the base of the plant (where the branches start) is buried just a inch or so beneath the surface of the soil or compost. That will help give your plants an extra boost as they establish.
Every garden should have some roses. This is a superb collection that will help provide colour, beauty, fragrance and cut flowers this year and for many years to come. I can't wait to get mine planted!
