We only supply A-Quality rose bushes (as per the 'European Nursery Stock Association'), with 3 strong branches.
Soak these pot grown rose bushes in a bucket of lukewarm water for half an hour before planting. Prepare a large hole, loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork and improve poor soil with the addition of compost and granulated cow manure. Remove the rose bush from its pot and plant at the correct depth in the hole. One centimeter deeper than the top of root ball is sufficient. Fill the hole with the improved soil, heel well in and water generously. A spot in full sun or partial shade is necessary for an abundance of flowers.
Potted Spray Roses on Patio or Decking
This very attractive spray rose is also great for planting in a pot on the patio. Use an ornamental flower pot with holes in the base for drainage. Cover the bottom with a layer of gravel or hydro granules and add fresh potting compost mixed with a little granulated cow manure. Water immediately after planting then place the pot in a position in full sun or partial shade.
The spray rose should be pruned every spring. This is actually very simple: in March prune the branches back to within 3 to 5 eyes (buds). Leave about five big branches per bush. The roses you receive from us have already been pruned, so you do not have to prune for another eighteen months.
The spray rose relies on plant food for a rich flowering. Therefore regularly apply a fertiliser. During the winter sprinkle granulated cow manure around the base of the bush. In spring apply a mixed organic fertiliser and in July use the special rose fertiliser. Check on the packaging for the correct amount to be used.
This sturdy rose produces wonderful flowers in sprays. The flowers are semi-double appearing throughout the summer. Spray roses look terrific when potted up but of course you can plant these unusual looking rose bushes in the garden too. Planted in groups, the lovely flowers will look even better.
All roses (Rosa) have their own family, the rose family (Rosaceae).
