Enchantingly beautiful

Love at first sight! The creamy white large-flowered 'True Love' rose is enchantingly beautiful. The easy rose will brighten up any garden, balcony, patio or rooftop terrace. The blooms of the 'True Love' also make wonderful cut flowers. You can plant the plant all year round, provided temperatures have not dipped below freezing. The flowers bloom from spring through to autumn. To ensure a profusion of blooms, give the roses organic fertiliser in the spring and autumn.
Prune the plant in the spring. Cut away the old flowers. This will make the bush even more beautiful and will strengthen young bushes. The rose bush loves the sun and partial shade. Water the rose generously immediately after planting. Give it extra water during dry periods.

All of our roses are grafted, which means that they have a frost-sensitive grafting point (the thicker area where the branches originate). The advantage of grafted roses is that they are much more winter-hardy and last longer because roses grafted to rootstock are stronger.

Planting

We supply only the best, 'A' quality roses (quality designation of the European Nursery Stock Association) with 3 strong branches. We store our roses under perfect climate conditions in our coolers, at 2° C and 98% humidity, as bare roots.
The quality is checked at several different points during storage and finally just prior to shipping to customers. We treat our rose bushes with a special gel that prevents them from drying out during transport.
Soak these garden rose bushes in a bucket of lukewarm water for 24 hours prior to planting. Dig a wide hole, loosen the soil with a fork and improve the soil with the addition of some well-rotted compost and granulated cow manure. Spread the roots of the rose well out and place in the hole at the correct depth - the frost sensitive graft (that thicker bit on the stem where the branches shoot from) should be about 5 cm below soil level. Fill the hole with the improved soil, heel well in and water generously. Full sun (part shade) is necessary for abundant flowering.
These rose bushes will also thrive in a large planter on the patio. Choose a large planter with holes in the base and layer the bottom with gravel or potsherds to ensure good drainage. Fill the pot with potting compost or soil improved with some granulated cow manure and plant your rose bush (only after you've soaked it overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water) in the pot in the same manner as described above. Water it immediately. Stand your potted rose in full sun or partial shade for a rich bloom!
 
 

Large-flowered roses combined with other plants

These large-flowered 'tea' roses bring big blousy blooms, one per stem, from June until the first frost. Such great eye-catchers in your garden. This is a really lovely variety that will look beautiful in a border surrounded with a buxus hedge! You can combine them with other plants and shrubs, although a well-filled rose bed has plenty of appeal just on its own. You can grow lower growing plants around the base such as Lamium Maculatum 'Beacon Silver'. Place them near a group of lavender or plant tulips so that they can bloom between your roses during the spring.

Care

To encourage new growth, deadhead the faded flowers, and snip back right up to the first five fingered leaf. They require plenty of food in order to experience a rich bloom, which means fertilising on a regular basis. In the winter use dry fertiliser, in early spring apply a mix of well-rotted manure and in July, use a special rose fertiliser. See the pack for correct dosage. To protect the vulnerable grafting point, we advise earthing up (piling the soil up around the base of the plant) before the start of winter. Spread this soil out again before pruning in the spring.

Pruning hybrid roses

Large 'tea' roses should be pruned every spring. Prune in March leaving only about five of the strongest branches. Prune each branch until there are 3-5 eyelets left (these are dormant buds - difficult to detect). The roses that you'll receive from us have already been pruned, so they only need to be pruned about a year to 18 months later.

Extra

Our large-flowering roses are commonly known as hybrid-tea roses with large, lightly fragrant flowers. The double flowers are in beautiful shades. These rose bushes are very strong and healthy and flower in abundance.
