•Position – Will thrive in most well drained soils on an open sunny site.

•Planting – Water thoroughly or stand container in water for an hour before planting.

•Dig a hole twice the size of the pot, mix compost and fertiliser with the soil from the hole, remove pot, place plant in the hole so that the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil, back fill and firm down to prevent air pockets.

•Watering – Water well after planting and for the first growing season.

•Aftercare – Roses benefit from a mulch of organic material, around the base of the plant after planting. Mulching keeps in moisture, prevents weeds and adds nutrients to the soil.

•Dead Heading – Remove spent flowers after flowering, this will encourage repeat flowering.

•Pruning – Lightly prune in autumn to prevent wind rock over winter. In spring prune down to good, strong, outward facing buds to produce an open wine glass shaped frame. This will allow good light and air movement into and around the plant.

•Feeding – Feed in spring after pruning and again in midsummer , with a general rose fertiliser.
