Voted Rose of the Year for 2013
This fab rose, has already scooped some of the top awards. It has been chosen as the Rose of the Year 2013 and in a recent trial by the British Association of Rose Breeders, it was awarded a Gold Standard. It is indeed a beauty. It has a neat, bushy habit with good resistance to diseases, and it will produce lashing of sugar pink, lightly scented blooms over a long period from midsummer. Its relatively compact habit also makes it suitable for both borders or a large pots. All our roses are grown in an open field and then dug up when the weather conditions are right in October or November. Some suppliers send out their roses as 'bare root' plants (ie without pots or compost), but we pot ours up as it helps to keep the roots hydrated and in good condition. As they are dormant throughout the winter, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when you take them out of their pots. The roses can be kept in their pots throughout the winter provided they are kept well fed and watered, however ideally they should planted out as soon as possible. They will already have been cut back so no further pruning will be required, apart from snipping off any tips that have died back. Routine pruning can begin in late winter the year after planting.
