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.  Patio roses can be planted in mixed borders or alongside other roses, or in pots and containers.

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 using Westlands organic Rose Food with horse manure.  Remove faded flowers to encourage speedy repeat flowering. To keep your roses looking healthy spray once every two weeks with Rose Clear Ultra, this will keep all diseases and pests from your roses.

Simple Pruning

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