How big will my plants grow to?
Each plant grows to an eventual height of about 1.5m (5ft).
What will I receive?
Your plants will arrive as 3 bare roots.
Can I plant them outside straight away?
Yes, these bare roots can be planted into the ground, as they arrive at the optimum time for planting. Make sure the ground is not frozen or water logged.
What shall I plant them in?
Roses are perfect for garden borders and will perform brilliantly in such a position. They can also be planted in containers that are a least 30cm-45cm (12"-18") deep.
Are they annuals or perennial?
Roses are perennials.
What fertilizer should I use?
We recommend using a well-balanced liquid fertiliser to feed your roses every 3 weeks, from spring through to autumn.
How often should I water them?
Water your roses regularly until they're well established, particularly in the early stages. Make sure they are planted in well-drained soil. During the hottest part of the summer they are best watered daily.
Should I dead head for better results?
While your roses are growing, remove any dead, damaged or diseased growth. You should dead head your plants regularly, unless you would like them to produce decorative hips.
Which way up should I plant them in the compost?
Place the bare root into the soil so the roots are under the soil and the thorny stem is above ground level.
What soil do they like?
Roses are hardy plants and can deal with most soil types that aren't too extreme. Ideally any well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter is best.
