Tips

Once you arrive home with your plant you will need to take care to ensure it has everything it needs to thrive.

Roses have an infamous reputation for being difficult to care for, but learning to care for them is quite simple. To keep your roses flourishing we suggest: 

  • Watering regularly
  • Apply regular amounts of fertiliser, approximately every 6 weeks
  • Use different fertilisers throughout the year; this could include slow release fertiliser
  • Mulch
  • Regularly trim plant
  • Regularly remove dead flowers
  • Use preventive fungicides and pesticides as required

We also have specific care tips for re-potting and planting your rose bushes in the ground.

Re-potting

When re-potting the bigger the pot, the better. It’s also important not to disturb the established root system. We suggest using a premium potting mixture and placing the pot in a sunny position where it will get at least 5-6 hours of sun everyday.

Planting in the Ground

Before you plant your rose bush you will need to prepare your rose bed. It will need to be in a sunny position free from overarching trees or shrubs. Get your rose bed ready by enriching the soil with fertiliser and compost, and then dig a hole deeper than the existing root system. Carefully place your rose bush in the hole and check that the bud union (where roses are budded) is 3cm above the ground level. Finally, backfill the hole with soil until half full, then add a bucket of water. Let this water drain and fill the rest of the hole with soil.
