Rose Plant Name

David Austin Roses names its roses
Rosa 'Cultivar Name/ Introduced Name' (Registration Name or Breeder's Name - AUScerise is AUS for Breeder Code and cerise is the name). The 'Cultivar Name' is used by the public to buy that Rose and the Registration Name is used by the Trade to buy that Rose. Help Me Find will identify the retail name used from the Registration Name used on the label. See the RHS classification system, comment row in England's Rose and Rosa 'Wildfire'.

Rosa 'Golden Wedding' (AROkris) - Class 5

(Syn.
Rosa 'AROicris')

Bred by Jack E. Christensen (United States, 1992).

Introduced in United States by Bear Creek Gardens, Inc. in 1991 as 'Golden Wedding'.

AROkris is the Registration Name.

 

The label by the rose in the Bowes-Lyon Rose Garden states Rosa Golden Wedding from the photo taken on 25 June 2013.

Searching Help Me Find database indicates the following part information for 2 different roses called Rosa 'Golden Wedding' :-

"Golden Wedding (floribunda, Christensen 1992)[AROkris]

Floribunda.  Golden-yellow.  Flowers deep golden yellow.  Mild fragrance.  Large, double (17-25 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters, high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  USDA zone 6b through 10b.  Height of 30" to 3' (75 to 90 cm).  Width of 18" to 2' (45 to 60 cm). Jack E. Christensen (1992).

 

Golden Wedding (hybrid tea, Krebs, 1938)

Hybrid Tea.  Yellow.  Large, double (17-25 petals) bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  USDA zone 6b and warmer.   Alfred Krebs (1938)."

Since Michael Marriott from David Austin Roses helped the RHS staff in the planting plan and AROkris is on the label, I am assuming that this rose is a Floribunda, which is Class 5, and its specification is the first from Help Me Find search above.

Common Name

Rose

Soil

Roses prefer acidic soil of pH 6.5 (sand) but will tolerate alkaline soils up to pH 7.5 (chalk). Mix 25 litres farmyard manure, or pulverized tree bark with bone meal, in soil before planting. Broadcast rose fertilizer in early Spring.

Sun Aspect

Full Sun - continuous, direct exposure to 6 hours or more of sunlight per day.

Soil Moisture

Moist - Soil is moist without being soggy because the texture of the soil allows excess moisture to drain away. Most plants like about 1 inch of water per week. Amending your soil with compost will help improve texture and water holding or draining capacity. A 3 inch layer of mulch will help to maintain soil moisture and studies have shown that mulched plants grow faster than non-mulched plants.

Plant Type

Modern Roses: 5 Cluster-Flowered (Floribunda Shrub)
 

Height x Spread in inches (cms)
(1 inch = 2.5 cms,
12 inches = 1 foot = 30 cms,
24 inches = 2 feet)

36 x 24 (90 x 60)

Foliage

Glossy, Dark Green leaves.

Flower Colour in Season. Hips

Golden-Yellow flowers in May-October.

Comment

Medium size compact shrub.

Suitable for growing:

"Golden-yellow.  Flowers deep golden yellow.  Mild fragrance.  Large, double (17-25 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters, high-centered bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  

Medium, compact.  Glossy foliage.  

Height of 30" to 3' (75 to 90 cm).  
Width of 18" to 2' (45 to 60 cm).

USDA zone 6b through 10b.  
Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, cut flower or garden.  Vigorous.  
Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant.  
Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  Requires spring freeze protection.  Can be grown in the ground or in a container (container requires winter protection).  

Whartons Nurseries Ltd report that over 500,000 plants of Golden Wedding have been produced in the UK to date!

Fryer's Roses says Golden Wedding is a vigorous rose, with masses of deep golden-yellow flowers..." from Help Me Find in America.

Modern Roses: 1 Modern Shrub Recurrent Large-Flowered
Modern Roses: 1a Modern Shrub Roses. Peter Beales Roses are split into the following not officially recognised World Federation of Rose Societies Rose Classes: "There are four main groups of rose.
 

  • 1a Bush and Shrub roses tend to be about as wide as they are tall and are perfect for growing in borders or as large specimen plants.
  • 14a Climbing roses grow up to around 2m (6ft) to 3m (12ft), can repeat flower and tend to flower on the current years growth. They are great for growing up pergolas and arches.
  • 12a Rambling roses can grow up to 10m (40ft) and tend to flower on the previous years growth and their size and vigor lends themselves to covering large areas such as dead trees and unsightly buildings.
  • 3a Ground covering roses tend to "scramble" low and are perfect for covering low fences and for cascading along the ground."

Modern Roses: 19a English Roses - David C.H. Austin OBE
(born 1926) is a rose breeder and writer who lives in Shropshire,
England. His emphasis is on breeding roses with the character and
fragrance of Old Garden Roses (Gallicas, Damasks, Alba roses, etc.)
but with the repeat-flowering ability and wide colour range of
modern roses such as Hybrid Teas and Floribundas. Though Austin's
roses are not officially recognised as a separate class of roses by,
for instance, the Royal National Rose Society or the American Rose
Society, they are nonetheless commonly referred to by rosarians,
at nurseries, and in horticultural literature as 'English Roses'
(the term he uses) or 'Austin Roses'.

Companion Plants for Roses:-

  • See How to use Companion Plants from David Austin Roses.
  • "Many roses are pruned in winter and aren't very attractive at this time. Underplant them with a succession of spring bulbs such as snowdrops, crocus, grape hyacinths, narcissi, early-flowering tulips and late-flowering tulips, before the roses start to bloom.
    Alliums come up year after year and their violet, globe-like flowers look great with early roses. Alliums and other members of the onion family are said to ward off aphids, prevent rose black spot and even make the scent of roses stronger.
    The perennial wallflower, Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve', starts flowering in spring and continues through summer – a great foil for white, pink, crimson or red roses. It then continues to flower for the rest of the year, providing interest after the roses have faded. Keep deadheading it for the best results.
    Most lilies come into flower just as the first flush of roses is beginning to go over. Tall, blowsy Lilium regale bears beautiful, white, pink-flushed flowers with a delicious fragrance. It also makes a good cut flower.
    Roses look great underplanted with hardy geraniums. Purple-blue geraniums like 'Rozanne' look good with many colours of rose, while pale pink Geranium x oxonianum 'Wargrave Pink' looks especially pretty with crimson roses such as 'Darcey Bussell'.
    Salvias come in a range of colours and make great partners for roses – they're long-flowering and their spire shapes give contrasting structure and interest. They also attract a huge number of beneficial insects and it's said that they help to keep mildew and blackspot at bay.
    Verbascums begin flowering in May and are still going when roses begin to bloom. They come in a wide range of colours, including yellow, white and peachy orange (such as 'Clementine', shown here). Their tall spires contrast beautifully with roses.
    Nepetas form a carpet of blue and look especially good with pink, crimson, red and even yellow roses. Nepeta ‘Six Hills Giant’ can be quite vigorous, so if you're short on space, go for Nepeta racemosa 'Walker's Low'. They attract many pollinators, especially bees and hoverflies.
    Penstemons not only look great with roses – they also keep the show going once they've finished blooming, often well into autumn. In shades of purple, pink, crimson or white, they look lovely with apricot, cream and pink roses.
    English lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, especially the dark purple-blue ‘Hidcote’, looks wonderful with apricot, pink, crimson or red roses. When not in flower, it offers neat mounds of evergreen, aromatic foliage.
    Late-flowering clematis make the perfect planting partners for climbing roses, especially rambling roses, which flower only once in summer. Depending on the varieties you grow, you could have your rose and clematis flowering together or the clematis flowering after the rose has finished, extending the season of colour to your pergola or arch.
    Other plants to grow with roses
    Alchemilla mollis, Campanulas, Grasses such as Stipa tenuissima, Gaura lindheimerei and
    Asters" from Gardeners World.
  • Underplanting Roses - Companion Plants for Roses from Gardenia.
  • What should you not plant around roses?
    Avoid plant companions with extensive root systems, such as large shrubs, that will deplete the soil of the resources your roses need to stay healthy. Roses, like many plants, won't flourish if they have to compete for water and nutrients.

    "Roses thrive in almost any USDA hardiness zone, depending on the variety. They love the sun and need soil that drains well. Roses are also classified heavy feeders, needing nutritious soil lower in nitrogen. Constantly wet roots and soil will lead to a plethora of problems, especially root rot.
    With these conditions in mind, there are a few plants not suited to roses:
    Bunchberry - needs shade and lots of water to thrive.
    Toad Lilies - need well-draining soil but do best in full shade.
    Leopard Plants - have a love of shade and need slightly alkaline soil that is moist.
    Fuchsia - shade is a requirement for this plant to thrive, along with rich moist soil." from Blooming Backyard.

M
Rosa Molineux - Although the name of this rose sounds like it must be French, it's actually named after David Austin's favorite soccer team's (Wolver-hampton Wanderers Football Club) football ground (Molineux) in Wolver-hampton.
Rosa Mortimer Sackler - The right to name this rose was auctioned on behalf of The National Trust to raise funds for their gardens. It was bought by Mrs. Sackler for her husband’s birthday.
Rosa Munstead Wood - Munstead Wood is a mansion and garden built by Gertrude Jekyll in Busbridge, Goldalming, Surrey.

Rosa Reflections - Named for the New Zealand National Rose Convention of 1997 and the 50th Anniversary of the Manawatu Rose Society.
Rosa Rhapsody in Blue - Rhapsody in Blue, by George Gershwin, premiered on February 12, 1924. (Floribunda) Rose of the year 2003. Clusters of dark, blue-y purple semi-double blooms with a paler reverse. Continually flowering and nicely perfumed. Good bushy growth and healthy foliage.
Rosa Royal William - In English, during 1688-89, Catholic James II was deposed and Protestant William III and Mary II ascended to the throne and Parliament, through the Bill of Rights, was accorded a more important position in the government of the country which it has maintained ever since.
Rosa Sally Kane - Broadcaster and writer Russ Kane is launching The Sally Kane Rose as a lasting tribute to his young wife, model and writer, who died in April 2004 from breast cancer. The Sally Kane Rose is available, with all profits going to The Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign, which is raising £30 million to help cancer patients at the hospital where Sally was treated.
Rosa Scarborough Fair - The petals in the bud curl around to form a ball, which opens to a perfect little cupped flower of pure soft pink; eventually opening wide to reveal a blush pink flower of the utmost delicacy; displaying a bunch of golden stamens. Charming at all stages. We have taken the name from the old song.
Rosa Song and Dance - An offspring from Warm Wishes that impressed us from day one for its all round dependability.
Rosa spinossima - Once-blooming in spring or summer followed by Hips which are Black-coloured.
Rosa Susan Daniel - The rose has been named after Susan Daniel the opera singer who has twice recovered from primary cancers, separated by 13 years and has since returned to sing at the Vienna State Opera and La Scala within weeks.

An ADR rose is a winner in the German ADR rose trial (Allgemeine Deutsche Rosenneuheitenprüfung). No chemical pesticides have been allowed since 1997 and breeders often describe the trial as among the most challenging in the world.The trial is set up by a working group that includes the Bund deutscher Baumschulen (German nurseries association), rose breeders, and 11 independent trial stations in Germany. The trial results are analyzed by the Bundessortenamt (Federal Office of Plant Varieties).

Roses are tested over 3 years and criteria analyzed include disease resistance, hardiness, attractiveness, and habit. About 50 cultivars are judged annually and more than 2000 cultivars have been tested since the award's creation in the 1950s. Roses that no longer fulfill quality standards have their certificate removed. As of November 2013, 161 cultivars are recognized.

The Halycon Days Rose is an ADR rose.

Rosa Lady Emma Hamilton - Lady Emma Hamilton was Horatio Nelson's lover and we have named this rose to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.
Rosa Young Lycidas - ‘Young Lycidas’ would be an excellent choice to associate with English Roses and Old Roses in a rose border or in a mixed border with hardy plants. We were asked by The Friends of Milton's Cottage to name this rose to mark the 400th anniversary of the birth of the poet John Milton. ‘Lycidas’, one of the finest short poems in the English language. Interestingly, it was Milton who introduced the word ‘fragrance’ into the English language.

"[From A Year of Roses, by Stephen Scanniello, pp. 146-147:] Tree roses, also called standard roses, are often displayed to their best advantage when planted in containers... Tree roses come in heights anywhere from two feet high (most common with miniature roses) to over six feet. There are two forms of standard roses available. One if the common form of a long stem supporting a bushy display of roses, sort of like a large lollipop. The other is a weeping standard, the only style I think worth using.


Tree roses are created by attaching three buds of a rose cultivar to a long straight stem of another rose. The most common stem stock to use is an unnamed rugosa rose variety. Other roses have been used for creating standards, but the rugosa seems to be the strongest, surviving the longest." from Help Me Find in America.

An ADR rose is a winner in the German ADR rose trial (Allgemeine Deutsche Rosenneuheitenprüfung). No chemical pesticides have been allowed since 1997 and breeders often describe the trial as among the most challenging in the world.The trial is set up by a working group that includes the Bund deutscher Baumschulen (German nurseries association), rose breeders, and 11 independent trial stations in Germany. The trial results are analyzed by the Bundessortenamt (Federal Office of Plant Varieties).

Roses are tested over 3 years and criteria analyzed include disease resistance, hardiness, attractiveness, and habit. About 50 cultivars are judged annually and more than 2000 cultivars have been tested since the award's creation in the 1950s. Roses that no longer fulfill quality standards have their certificate removed. As of November 2013, 161 cultivars are recognized.

The Halycon Days Rose is an ADR rose.

 

Comment

"Bush roses were bred for use in formal rose beds. The large-flowered bushes are best for formal rose beds near the house, and for cutting. Cluster-flowered bushes are ideal for beds of showy colour and could also be planted in groups at the front of a shrub border, or even singly. Cluster-flowered bushes are better suited to poor conditions, especially wet areas, because their flowers withstand rain better.

Choosing bush roses is a matter of personal taste, but there are do’s and don’ts. Choose either large-flowered bushes or cluster-flowered bushes. Do not mix them – the results can be very messy. Neither should varieties of large-flowered bushes be mixed in the same bed because mixed colours take from the effect of formal elegance.

The more showy cluster-flowered bushes can be mixed, but stick to two or three varieties – avoid the ‘fruit-salad’ effect. Try to match the varieties for height – use the taller ones to the back, or the middle of a bed, mixed border or island bed – and choose complementary colours. Research the variety and try to see it growing – visit St. Anne’s Rose Garden, Clontarf, Dublin, or a rose nursery during the flowering season.

Standard roses are used in the middle, or at the back of large rose beds, to add some height. They have long been used as specimens on their own, but less so nowadays. They could also be used in groups, or singly, in a shrub border behind low, non-competitive plants to give summer colour.

Being true shrubs, the shrub roses are best placed among other flowering and non-flowering shrubs. They bring colour to a shrub border in late spring and early summer. The shrub roses can also be planted as specimens on their own and some of them make good informal, secure hedges

The climbing habit of growth of climbing and rambling roses makes them ideal for covering walls and unsightly large objects. They can also be grown on flowering garden trees to give more interest, or on an old tree stump, pillar or pergola.

Miniature roses have become very popular for patio and container growing. They can also be used on rockeries, and as house plants." from Using Roses in the Garden by Ireland's Gardening Community.

There are 3 groups of roses, whose Rose Use Flower Images are compared in Rose Use Gallery and whose Flower Colour and Rose Type Shape are compared in the Rose Plant 2 gallery

There are 720 roses in this website:-

 

"Please note that we strongly recommend that Bare-Root Standard Roses planned for growing in borders and supplied between November and February should in the first instance be potted up in John Innes No. 3 compost and moved into a cool greenhouse or cool frost and draft free area during periods of severe winter weather and moved back outside once milder weather returns as newly planted Standards are particularly vunerable to weather damage or loss in the first season when the new root system is not yet established. Once in full leaf and fully rooted in Spring or early summer they can then be safely re-planted into the garden (providing additional frost protection to stem and flower head in severe winter weather in future years is also strongly recommended).

Newly potted/dormant roses supplied in pots should be left outside (also protect from severe winter weather by moving into a cool greenhouse or cool frost free area) in the original pot supplied until in full leaf and fully rooted before attempting to plant into their final position.

Rose orders supplied outside the UK are not covered by our free replacement guarantee, bush roses are grafted onto Rosa Laxa which will withstand normal UK winter weather but would need protection from severe winter frosts experienced in some EEC countries." from Style Roses.

Rose Care from Crocus:-

"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 be 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.

If planting in winter, choose a frost-free spell when the soil is not frozen. Roses are quite deep-rooted plants so dig a deep hole roughly twice as wide as the plants roots and mix in a generous amount of composted organic matter. A top-dressing of a general purpose fertiliser can be worked into the surrounding soil.

Remove the plants from their pots and gently spread out the roots before placing them in the centre of the hole. Try to ensure that the 'bud union' (the point where the cultivated rose has been grafted onto the rootstock, and from where the shoots emerge) is at soil level. You can judge this quite easily by laying something flat, like a spade handle or bamboo cane, across the top of the hole. When they are at the right height, back-fill the hole, firming the soil down gently before watering the plant well.

Water generously until well established, and apply a specialist rose fertiliser (following the manufacturers instructions) each spring. They will also benefit from a generous mulch of composted farmyard manure in spring, but make sure this is kept away from the stems.

While wearing tough gloves, prune in late winter or early spring, removing any dead, damaged or weak-looking stems completely. The younger stems tend to produce the best flowers on hybrid teas, so if the plant is becoming congested, cut one or two of the older stems right back to their base, which will also help open up the centre of the plant. Then cut back the most vigorous stems to within 25-30cm from the base, and the thinner stems back a little harder."

 

 

The following diagrams and "text" from 'The Complete Gardener' by H.H Thomas first published in 1912 by Cassell and Company, Ltd detail the correct way of planting and securing:-

roseplanting1a1

"Cut off all broken and bruised root ends. It is most harmful to leave bare-rooted plants lying about when waiting their turn to be planted; they should either be placed in water (put them into a flexible tubtrug and then half fill it with water) or covered with soil. The root fibres so quickly dry up and perish when exposed to the air even for a short time. Finally, it is necessary to make the soil firm about the roots. It follows from this that planting cannot be done when the ground is wet; neither is it wise to plant when the ground is dry, as it sometimes is in October. As to the time of planting, early November is the best. However, rose planting may be carried out successfully from the middle of October until the end of March or early April, but not later when the plants are from the open ground. Roses from pots may be planted at any time of the year, though preferably not later than May, since the roots are not disturbed and the plant receives no check." - (Although what it would do with a cheque for £30, I do not know if it would remove that check!)

roseplanting2a1

I recommend cow manure, since each cow eats its food 4 times; and therefore there is no seed left in the manure.

"I give a coating of farmyard manure as soon as pruning is finished, which is usually about the first week in April. This is forked just beneath the surface. The roses receive the occasional dressings of Tonks fertiliser during the summer, in addition to the first one in February, as detailed below."

roseplanting3a1

"Dr Tonk's' fertiliser is especially beneficial to roses, and may be purchased already made up. Those who like to mix their own may use the following:-

This is applied in February at 1 pound (lb) per square yard (500 grammes per square metre). It is scattered on the surface of the bed, and then turned in with a fork."

roseplanting4a1

Use green plant twine rather than green plastic twine to tie it. The green plastic twine will not rot and if you forget it, then the trunk of the rose cannot expand - leading to a weak section, which in a high wind can lead to the top of the rose snapping off.

Suckers must be torn off not cut off:-

rosaflowercarpetscarletsuckergarnonswilliams1

This light green foliage is a sucker from the rootstock with its standard rose trunk, which has the rose for viewing its flowers grafted at about 3 feet up it. If they are cut off, then they will recover and regrow. If ripped off then its complete junction with the root or standard rose trunk is also totally removed, and no regrowth of that sucker can occur.

 

 

Pickering Nurseries in Canada sell the following roses with these suggestions:-

"Disease Resistant Rose Suggestions

We consider the following rose varieties to show above average disease resistance. We rate them as resistant to powdery mildew, black spot and rust based on our observances in our fields. Your results may vary as disease resistance will vary with location and cultural techniques. The following is a list of the most reliably disease resistant roses.

Shade Tolerant Rose Suggestions

The Shade Tolerant Rose List includes some rose varieties that we feel are best suited for planting in partial shade. Partial shade being dappled light under a sparse canopy of trees or in a position where the roses will only receive 4-5 hours of sunlight. Other rose types that are shade tolerant are most Rugosas, Albas, Centifolias and Hybrid Musk roses. While these roses are shade tolerant and will do well in part shade; all roses do best in full sun. To answer a very common question: Roses DO REQUIRE some sunlight to grow. You can't plant them in deep or almost complete shade.

Cutting and Exhibition Rose List

The Cutting/Exhibition Rose List is comprised of rose varieties that are suggested as good choices for cutting and arranging for the home gardener or for rose shows. This Cutting/Exhibition Rose List is compiled from conversations with our customers about their opinions of which of their roses are good for cutting or exhibiting.

Winter Hardy Rose List

Rose types that need no winter protection - we consider these roses to be reliably winter-hardy in zones 6, 5, and 4 under normal conditions. Polyanthas, Explorer Climbers, most Ramblers, most Shrub Roses, Rugosas, Albas, Cerntifolias, Damasks, Gallicas, Hybrid Foetida & Moyessi, Hybrid Musks, Hybrid Spinossimas, Mosses, and most species varieties. ALL other rose varieties should be protected for winter. There are other rose varieties within the different types of roses that are considered to be winter hardy if their bud union is planted at least two inches below grade. These roses will definitely benefit from winter protection until they are well established and then even beyond if there are great fluctuations in temperatures ie. Freezing and thawing.

Joel's Picks

The list below is a collection of our favorites. We feel they are the most satisfying varieties in terms of bloom production & quality, general plant health and vigor and growth habit."

DICKSON ROSES

New roses from the world’s oldest rose breeding company!

Caring for your roses
Be sure to buy your roses from specialist growers or reputable garden centres. Avoid cheap alternatives, they’ll only let you down! Buy quality. Don’t go home with a dud!

If possible try to visit your local nursery during the summer to view the roses in full bloom. It makes selection so much easier. Modern roses are superior to roses grown 40 - 50 years ago, requiring less attention, being more vigorous, healthy, floriferous and generally easier to maintain. You wouldn’t buy a 1960’s Ford Anglia today when you could buy a new model Focus, would you?!

Treat roses as you would look after yourself: a well looked after rose is usually a healthy rose. When it’s hungry, feed it. When it’s thirsty, water it. Even if you don’t want to spray your roses, they should be easy maintained if you avoid disease prone varieties.

We, together with The British Rose Trade, recommend Uncle Tom’s Rose Tonic. This product revitalises growth and encourages flowering.

It also builds up resistance and prevents disease. It can be applied by knapsack sprayer or watering can, and is available from http://www.naturalgardensolutions.com/products.php#rosetonic

 

Preparation before planting
In ideal circumstances we would recommend that the ground should be prepared some three months before planting. Dig in a 5 cm layer of well rotted farmyard manure and allow it to dilute into the surrounding soil. We do not advise that the manure be placed in the hole whilst planting. If you don’t have time to wait for the manure to cool-off, place a 5 cm layer around your plants after planting, but keeping the manure away from direct contact with the rose tree. Protect with a 5 cm layer of forest bark as a mulch.

If after receiving your roses, the planting is to be delayed for a few days, leave the package unopened, in an unheated, frost-proof place, like a shed or a garage. If planting is to be delayed for more than a week, heel-in the roses by digging a shallow V-shaped trench and spread the plants in a single line against one side. Cover the roots and lower part of stems with soil.

 

Planting instructions

  • 1. Dig a hole large enough to take all the roots (about 35 x 35 x 35 cm);
  • 2. Fork in the base of the hole to loosen soil;
  • 3. Place the rose in the hole, fold in long roots around the base of the hole;
  • 4. Replace about half the soil and tread firmly in, ensuring there are no air pockets around the roots;
  • 5. Replace the remaining soil and tread firmly in, with the branches just above soil level when fully planted;

 

Deadheading
Should be done when the bloom is past its best, by cutting through the branch about 15 cm below the flower for Hybrid Teas or remove just the flower for Floribunda roses. If there is a cluster, then remove it 10 cm below the lowest point of the cluster.

 

Pruning / Cutting back

  • 1. Remove the dead wood;
  • 2. Remove weak growth;
  • 3. Cut remaining growth to leave no more than 10 cm from point of growth the previous season (Hybrid Tea & Floribunda) / 5 cm for Patio. Shrub roses: unwanted growth should be trimmed back as and when necessary;
  • 4. In November / December the plants should only be trimmed back lightly to tidy up the plants;
  • 5. During December, remove debris and dead leaves and mulch with manure or leaf mould." from Dickson Roses.

The following is from Ashridge Nurseries:-

Rosa Canina Hedging
Rosa canina, Dog Rose, is the cheapest and most commonly used native wild rose for use as a country hedging plants. It is an incredibly hardy and versatile rose that will grow pretty much anywhere except on the very wettest sites. Rosa canina is good for hedges up to about 3 metres high.
View our selection of rose hedging or see our full range of thorny hedging plants
Rosa canina hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Rosa canina hedge:
Plant Rosa canina hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant Rosa canina at 5 plants per metre in a staggered double row, with 33 cms between each plant along the row and 40cms between the rows.

General description of Rosa canina plants:
The Dog Rose, Rosa canina, is a fast-growing native rose with a thicket of prickly stems that make a great secure hedge. It carries clusters of single, scented pale pink flowers in summer and small red hips in autumn that attract birds.
It is best in mixed hedges, usually interplanted with hawthorn to help give it structure. We usually use it in our conservation hedge packs.
Dog rose bushes by themselves usually won't get much bigger than 1.5 metres, but when they are pushed up against other plants in a hedge, they will reach 3 metres.

Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
Bareroot and potted - what's the difference?

Little White Pet

"White Pet is sometimes known as Little Dot in New Zealand.

[From A Year of Roses, by Stephen Scanniello, pp. 146-147:] Tree roses, also called standard roses, are often displayed to their best advantage when planted in containers. Tree roses come in heights anywhere from two feet high (most common with miniature roses) to over six feet. There are two forms of standard roses available. One is the common form of a long stem supporting a bushy display of roses, sort of like a large lollipop. The other is a weeping standard, the only style I think worth using.


Tree roses are created by attaching three buds of a rose cultivar to a long straight stem of another rose. The most common stem stock to use is an unnamed rugosa rose variety. Other roses have been used for creating standards, but the rugosa seems to be the strongest, surviving the longest." from Help Me Find

Comment

"Bush roses were bred for use in formal rose beds. The large-flowered bushes are best for formal rose beds near the house, and for cutting. Cluster-flowered bushes are ideal for beds of showy colour and could also be planted in groups at the front of a shrub border, or even singly. Cluster-flowered bushes are better suited to poor conditions, especially wet areas, because their flowers withstand rain better.

Choosing bush roses is a matter of personal taste, but there are do’s and don’ts. Choose either large-flowered bushes or cluster-flowered bushes. Do not mix them – the results can be very messy. Neither should varieties of large-flowered bushes be mixed in the same bed because mixed colours take from the effect of formal elegance.

The more showy cluster-flowered bushes can be mixed, but stick to two or three varieties – avoid the ‘fruit-salad’ effect. Try to match the varieties for height – use the taller ones to the back, or the middle of a bed, mixed border or island bed – and choose complementary colours. Research the variety and try to see it growing – visit St. Anne’s Rose Garden, Clontarf, Dublin, or a rose nursery during the flowering season.

Standard roses are used in the middle, or at the back of large rose beds, to add some height. They have long been used as specimens on their own, but less so nowadays. They could also be used in groups, or singly, in a shrub border behind low, non-competitive plants to give summer colour.

Being true shrubs, the shrub roses are best placed among other flowering and non-flowering shrubs. They bring colour to a shrub border in late spring and early summer. The shrub roses can also be planted as specimens on their own and some of them make good informal, secure hedges

The climbing habit of growth of climbing and rambling roses makes them ideal for covering walls and unsightly large objects. They can also be grown on flowering garden trees to give more interest, or on an old tree stump, pillar or pergola.

Miniature roses have become very popular for patio and container growing. They can also be used on rockeries, and as house plants." from Using Roses in the Garden by Ireland's Gardening Community.

The following practical advice was written by Percy Thrower in his Percy Thrower's Practical Guides Roses and published by W.H. & L. Collingridge Ltd in 1964:-

"Soils and Situations
Roses, ideally like a deep, good quality loam, not waterlogged or sour, but well supplied with plant foods and stiff enough to allow the roots to find a congenial cool run. I believe that, with good cultivation and the proper use of manure, almost any garden in the British Isles may be made to produce quite satisfactory roses.
Roses do not like to be dried out, yet they appreciate enough sun to ensure thorough ripening of the wood. The more open the beds are to light and air, the better. If the soil is naturally light and quick draining as in sand, it must have sufficient organic matter added to ensure that during dry spells it will not become parched."

See Interaction between 2 Quartz Sand Grains to make soil page on how to add clay etc to a sandy soil and how to add sand to a clay soil to get a SOIL towards a Perfect general use soil, which is composed of 8.3% lime, 16.6% humus, 25% clay and 50% sand.

"Organic matter is equally useful on clay soils to improve their texture and prevent them cracking in hot weather."

A 150mm deep mulch of mixed peat, sharp washed sand and horticultural grit was applied on top of a heavy clay soil to improve its structure, and stop the plants therein from drowning in Soil Formation - What is Soil Texture? page.

"While, of course, partly rotted organic materials provide the basis of nearly all natural plant food taken up by the roots, they also act as a sponge, holding on to soil moisture which should otherwise be lost. At the same time soil texture is improved enormously by the air spaces left as the material breaks down further into humuds and it is from this that clay soils particularly benefit.

Humus.
Humus itself is the end product of the complex breaking down of organic materials added to the soil. It takes some time to reach this state and because of this, I try to give my roses regular dressings of organic matter each year, knowing that this breaking-down process is going on all the time.
Humus can be provided in a variety of ways, the best being as well-rotted farmyard or stable manure. Unfortunately, this is not often readily obtained near a town, and haulage over long distance may make the price prohibitive.

In Britain, unless you own the well-rotted farmyard manure, you cannot take it and transport it as a member of the public. You have to get the owner who could be a company or an individual to transport it to your property, which is why there are great heaps of the stuff lying on farmers and stable owners properties, which could benefit householder's gardens - another example of crass government stupidity.

Any decayed vegetable matter may be used with advantage if well worked in. There must be tons of kitchen vegetable trimmings put into dustbins each year which could, and should, be added to the garden compost heap.
Lawn mowings and other garden refuse, stacked for a few months and turned occasionally, will rot down into good manure.

When I was maintaining my customer's gardens, the gardens were too small to have large compost bins that I could apply sufficient prunings/weeds each fortnight for it to compost properly. So I advised my clients to have a small plastic dustbin under their sinks for vegetable and fruit peelings, used tea bags/coffee grounds and eggshells, which I could then apply to a newly weeded area in the garden as a 3 inch (7.5cm) deep mulch and cover over with a 0.5 inch (1 cm) layer of mown grass/mown prunings/mown removed weeds. That would decompose to produce humus, stop weed seeds germinating, stop the ground from drying out due to wind and sun; and reuse that organic matter for those garden plants.

Cultivation
Double digging is the most satisfactory preparation for roses. This means thoroughly breaking up the soil to a depth of about 24 inches (60cms). The work is commenced by taking out a 24 inch wide trench across the plot to a depth of 12 inches (30 cms), and wheeling the soil removed from this to the other end of the patch. Then, the gardener gets into the trench and, with a strong digging fork, breaks up the bottom soil as deeply as possible. A 6 inch (15cm) depth of well-rotted manure is incorporated with this soil which has been dug over at the bottom of the trench.
The work proceeds by opening an adjacent trench 24 inches in width and turning the soil onto the broken soil lying in the previous trench.
Now the bottom of this new trench is forked.
Manure is not wanted at first in the top soil because it check early root development in newly planted roses, but there is no reason why sheep's wool/bracken, straw or Green Compost should not be used to improve the texture of the top soil.
To complete the pre-planting preparations it is a good plan to dress the soil with bone-meal or hoof and horn, which will benefit the roses over an extended period.

The above cultivation is a pipedream in the modern gardens in Britain, since it is more than likely that there is a very little depth of topsoil below the turf, before you get to the subsoil of clay or sand with perhaps rubble on top of that subsoil.
I suggest that you dig down through the turf as far as you can using a fork, then fork in a depth of 6 inches (15cms) layer of sheep's wool/bracken, straw or Green Compost. Then using the fork mix this with the next forkfull of turf/soil, before repeating the process until the bed for the roses has been dug. Water the dug area with a a good amount of water.
Leave the dug area for 3 months.
Then, Dig down 2 forks depth and laying this to one side.
Apply the manure to the bottom of the trench and mix it with a fork's depth of the next part of the turf/soil depth of trench. Next, apply a 3 inch (7.5cm) depth layer of sheep's wool/bracken, straw or Green Compost. Then dig the second fork depth fork depth to lay on top of that mulch. Repeat the process until completion.
Leave for 2 months before applying the
bone-meal or hoof and horn.

Planting
Roses can be planted at any time from late October to late March, but from past experience I have found that November is probably the most favourable month. Many roses are now grown in pots and these can be transplanted at any time, even in mid-summer, providing moist soil is kept around the roots.

Faults to avoid in planting.
There are 3 things to avoid as each of them may check the plants severely. They are:

  • allowing the roots to become dry before or during the time of planting;
  • planting too deeply, and
  • doubling up some of the roots so that their ends are pointing upwards instead of outwards or downwards as they should

To these I would add insufficient firming of the soil, but I do not regard this as quite so serious as the other 3, particularly if roses are planted in the autumn, because the amount of rain we usually get in 1964 then soon consolidates the soil even if it has not been well trodden down in the first place.

Arrival from nursery.
Roses, if properly packed, should arrive from the nursery with their roots reasonably moist, but if they appear to be dry, do not hesitate to stand them in a bucket of water for 30 minutes to get a thorough soaking. Then, either dig a hole big enough to accomodate all the roots in the bundle of roses and cover them immediately with soil, or wrap damp hemp sacking or straw around them.
If the rose arrives in a pot, then soak it for 30 minutes in the bucket. Take them out of the bucket and wrap them in damp hemp sacking or straw to prevent them drying out.
It may take several hours to plant a large number properly and in that time roots can be seriously damaged by drying out if left exposed to the sun or a drying wind.

CUT-FLOWER

" Flower arranging is an art, and is all about proportion and balance...... Some years ago, a very persuasive lady telephoned me to ask for help. 'I need a 1000 blooms,' she said, 'for a festival of Rossini Music and Song'. Until the day I arrived in Sunderland I cursed myself for not saying No; the logistics were ridiculous - cut 1000 blooms one day, up at the crack of dawn, travel for 7 hours the next. But when I arrived at Bishopswearmouth church I knew it was all worthwhile. I was beseiged, embraced and thoroughly spoilt by an army of 'Geordie' lady flower arrangers who produced some real works of art with my roses in that church. Later, when the soprano hit top C, petals fluttered to the floor to add an extra sense of unreality to my first encounter with the friendly Northeast. ...

Selecting roses for cutting is an acquired skill. Cut them too tight and they never open, too open and they last only fleetingly. The best stage is when the sepals have started to fold back and the furled petals are showing colour. Timing is important. Early morning or late evening is best, but at whatever time flowers are cut they should always be placed in water up to their necks and stood in a cool place for 2 or 3 hours before they are arranged. A couple of spoonfuls of sugar or even a pint of lemonade to about 1 gallon of water will help them to stay fresh for a few hours longer. Before placing the flowers in water it is best to remove the 2 bottom leaves - no more - and scrape the thorns from the bottom 3" (7.5cm). Some people crush the base of each stem but I usually make a cut about half-an-inch (1cm) long upwards into it. This exposes a bigger area of inner tissue and enables the flower to take up more water. Cut roses will wilt in warm, dry conditions, and lightly syringing the leaves with cold water will help to revive them. I am told by the experts that plunging the bottom inch of stem into boiling water for about 1 minute and then placing them quickly back into cold water will sometimes revive wilting blooms.

Some people believe that harm can be done to rose bushes by the cutting of blooms, and certainly if too many are taken with long stems the plants do suffer slightly, but they should come to no real harm. Try to cut to an eye though, so as not to leave an unsightly stump to die back on the bush. ...

2 or 3 carefully chosen bushes, growing in even the smallest garden, can usually provide enough flowers for taking indoors without any detriment to the outdoor display; and their scent will pervade the entire house, rivalling both sweet peas and ten-week stocks."

TOLERANT OF POOR SOILS

Roses prefer acidic soil of pH 6.5 (sand) but will tolerate alkaline soils up to pH 7.5 (chalk). Mix 25 litres farmyard manure, or pulverized tree bark with bone meal, in soil before planting. Broadcast rose fertilizer in early Spring and in early summer as well.

HEDGE

" Formal Hedges.

When planting a formal hedge, consideration should be given to any upright-growing variety capable of reaching the desired height. Bushes should either be in a single row, with 18" (45cm) between each plant or, for a really thick hedge, a double row of staggered bushes with 12" (30cm) between each row and 24" (60cm) between each plant. It is essential to prune the bushes very hard in the first year to encourage basal growth for later years, when such pruning will not be possible. If formality is desired from some of the old-fashioned and species roses, traditional methods of pruning have to be abandoned in favour of shears; and since not all types take kindly to such treatment, the choice of variety is particularly important. Clipped hedges can look very attractive, but these must be pruned very hard both their first and second year. Once the hedge is growing well, clipping can start, but if this is not timed correctly flowering may be affected. Clipping should be practised after flowering so that the hedge has time to make growth for the following year.Throughout the rest of the summer it should only be necessary to remove extra vigorous or 'awkward' shoots as they appear. Only the 'once-flowering' varieties are suitable for treatment this way. So, if you require more from your hedge, such as autumn flowers and/or hips, then informality must be accepted. Planting distances for old-fashioned and species roses will depend on the variety but few will need to be closer than 24" (60cm) and most make satisfactory hedges planted 36" (90cm) apart.

See Hedge Page for 10 Good Shrub Roses which can be kept trimmed for Ornamental Hedges.

Informal Hedges.

Some of the Hybrid Musks make quite neat plants as hedgerows, whereas the Centifolias will form wide, impenetrable, untidy jungles. The secret of good informal rose hedges, no matter what the type, is, as already stressed, hard pruning in the first year and light clipping or tidying when the hedge is matured. Feeding, too, is important to keep them at their best.

See Hedge Page for 10 Good Tall, Recurrent old and shrub Roses for use as Informal Hedges.

See Hedge Page for roses which are excellent for edging bed borders.

CLIMBER IN A TREE

Some gardens have old trees of dubious purpose and dead tree trunks which could be put to the " use of supporting a climbing rose. Also some rather boring stretches of hedgerow, atractive only for their bird population, could well be enhanced by the addition of a few well-chosen vigorous climbing rose species.

Nature does not provide for growing and flowering at the same time; thus without exception, all the vigorous tree-climbing roses flower only once each season. Some do have good autumn foliage and produce abundant hips to give colour later. As with the climbers for north walls, the most suitable, with 1 or 2 exceptions, are white, cream or yellow in colour. Size of tree should not present a problem since some of the very vigorous climbers can reach 30' (9m) with ease.

It is best to plant these roses a little distance, about 2' (60cm), from the trunk on the side of the tree with most light, giving them a helping hand initially with string or wire, until they can scamble their own way up through the branches. Bear in mind that, being vigorous, they need to make big roots. If soil is poor, as so often under trees, give them a good start by adding a pocket of good soil at planting time and apply plenty of water at the height of summer.

See Climber in a Tree Page for 11 older Roses suitable for growing up into Trees and Hedgerows.

Because the tree's roots will extend from the trunk to the drip-line from the end of the branches, Chris would suggest that the rose is planted outside that drip-line so that its roots do not compete with the roots of that tree.

Little White Pet

"White Pet is sometimes known as Little Dot in New Zealand.

[From A Year of Roses, by Stephen Scanniello, pp. 146-147:] Tree roses, also called standard roses, are often displayed to their best advantage when planted in containers. Tree roses come in heights anywhere from two feet high (most common with miniature roses) to over six feet. There are two forms of standard roses available. One is the common form of a long stem supporting a bushy display of roses, sort of like a large lollipop. The other is a weeping standard, the only style I think worth using.


Tree roses are created by attaching three buds of a rose cultivar to a long straight stem of another rose. The most common stem stock to use is an unnamed rugosa rose variety. Other roses have been used for creating standards, but the rugosa seems to be the strongest, surviving the longest." from Help Me Find

Rosa 'Kathleen Harrop' can be grown in children's play areas or by the front door since, like its parent 'Zephirine Drouhin', it is completely thornless - see other Thornless or Nearly Thornless Roses.

Mottisfont Rose Gardens It is still regarded as a masterclass in how to combine roses with other plants:-

Our walled garden is one of the most famous rose gardens in the world, forming a range of colouring, style and fragrance that has never been surpassed. Created by Graham Stuart Thomas in the 1970s - one of the most important figures in 20th century British horticulture - it is home to many varieties that may otherwise have become extinct.

If you’re inspired by the scented sights of our gardens and want to try growing roses yourself, here are some top tips from Assistant Head Gardener Jonny Bass:-

  • Healthy root system – Here at Mottisfont we use Mycorrhizal fungi religiously. It’s added into the soil around the roots when planting and will create a beneficial or symbiotic relationship with the plant to help produce new, fibrous roots.
  • Food – You can’t beat a good dose of well-rotted manure. Either dug into the soil or used as a mulch around the roses it will give excellent results and it’s 100 per cent organic and natural.
  • Pruning - When pruning your roses don’t be afraid to get stuck in. It’s important to have strong new growth coming up from the base and you should be looking to cut out some of the oldest wood every year."

BEDDING

From Peter Beales Roses An illustrated encyclopaedia and grower's handbook of species roses, old roses and modern roses, shrub roses and climbers by Peter Beales (ISBN 0-00-272178-3) Published 1992:-

" By far and away the best roses for bedding are Floribundas. They start flowering in late June and continue in flower until the first frost of November. As they come in all sizes, however, they are most effective when only one variety is grown en masse; and this applies not just in parks and large gardens but in small gardens too... because... it is very difficult to get an even height throughout any wide-ranging mixture.

See Bedding Page for 20 widely available HYBRID TEAs for Border Bedding.

CLIMBER / PILLAR

"For a formal structure, rough-sawn timber is the least expensive of the prepared materials and should likewise be ready-treated with preservative. Upright poles or posts should be a minimum thickness of 4" (10cm) and should always be sunk at least 2' (60cm) into the ground. Rails and cross-members can be thinner than this but not less than 2" (5cm). Since the principal purpose of such structures is to provide support for climbing roses which will eventually cover them almost completely, the pattern created by criss-crossing timber need not - unless so desired - be very elaborate. What is important, in order to ensure long life, is the quantity and quality of the upright poles placed in the ground. The spacing of these poles is therefore crucial. The best rustic trellis has uprights placed at about 6' (1.8m) intervals. Rustic arches should be well anchored in the soil at each corner."

Ordinary trellis should be 1" (2.5cm) x 1" (2.5cm) timber in 6" (15cm) squares to carry the weight of the roses. A more simple form of support for climbers and ramblers is post and wire. 4" x 4" Posts can be set at 6' (1.8m) apart before attaching chainlink fencing from 2' (60cm) to 5' (1.5m) in height up the 6' above ground post. All end or corner posts should have additional straining posts to enable the chainlink to be stretched tightly.

See Climber / Pillar page for 10 Good old-fashioned Rambers for Trellis and Arch.

See Climber / Pillar page for 10 Good older Climbers for Trellises and Arches.

Climbing roses, if grown on walls, will need support. Starting at 18" (45cm) above ground drill holes in the centre of the brick to take screw-eyes in their plastic plugs. Vertically every 4th brick and then horizontally every second brick will provide the neccessary support structure. The top and bottom rows with each end column of short vine-eyes should have its screw thread fully screwed into the plug to provide a secure unbending vine-eye so that the wire can be stretched tightly between each end of each row. Then, the remaining 4" long screw-eyes with their 1" length of screw thread should have their screw thread fully screwed into the plug to give a 2" gap behind the wire stretched in the vine-eyes to allow air ventilation for the roses.

Click for further details on WISLEY WISLEY Rose Plant Classification System:-

Rosa Wisley 2008 'AUSbreeze' is:-

  • Wisley 2008 is the Exhibition Name, the name it is introduced to the public by, the name that is used in retail and its cultivar name.
  • 'AUSbreeze' is the Registration Name, which is AUS to indicate that David Austin Roses Limited was its breeder and breeze was its name. Rosa England's Rose 'Auslounge' is described as England's Rose Varietal Name : Auslounge by Roses UK. So, besides the Registration Name, we also have the Varietal Name - see further naming problems in Rosa 'England's Rose' (AUSrace) page.

 

Normal Rose Plant Classification System:-

Now you should not confuse the above system with the usual retail name of Rosa 'Wisley 2008' (Ausbreeze) by Austin Roses where

  • 'Wisley 2008' is the cultivar name and
  • (Ausbreeze) is its Registration Name ( This is used in the trade to make absolutely certain that they know what the rose is). To differentiate the 2 parts of the Registration Name Ausbreeze would normally appear as AUSbreeze.

The Royal National Rose Society is "is not only the world’s oldest specialist plant society but the foremost global authority on the cultivation and care of the rose. Established in 1876, the RNRS now has a membership that spans the globe and includes many affiliated horticultural societies and research libraries, as well as thousands of rose- loving individuals.

Today, the RNRS is best known for its flagship Gardens of the Rose at Chiswell Green in Hertfordshire, on the outskirts of St Albans. Opened 50 years ago by the then Patron of the Society, the Princess Royal, The Gardens of the Rose offer five acres of stunning displays of tens of thousands of roses, both traditional and contemporary, complemented by a huge selection of companion plants.

A major objective is the administration of the RNRS International rose trials which are open to both professional and amateur rose breeders. Visit our International Rose Trials page for some background to the trialling process.

The Society is also recognised as a governing body in the administration of showing and judging roses in the UK. Visit our shows area page for details of forthcoming events."

"Pruning roses - the sissinghurst method

Pruning roses the Sissinghurst way helps create those wonderful fountains of roses you see in summer gardens - delicious-smelling, out-of-control geysers of flowers that effuse all over the garden. Pruning roses like this means you don't get those boring little twiggy bushes, all leg and no body, surrounded by bare ground.

The Sissinghurst rose pruning technique originated at Cliveden with the Astors' head gardener Jack Vass, who moved to Sissinghurst in 1939.

Vita Sackville-West loved her roses, particularly the dark, rich Gallicas such as 'Charles de Mills', 'Tuscany Superb' and 'Cardinal de Richelieu', but it was Jack Vass who started to grow them in this exceptional way, and roses have been pruned and trained like this at Sissinghurst ever since. Other National Trust properties send their gardeners here to learn this ingenious technique.

The rose pruning philosophy can be summed up as "treat them mean, keep them keen". If you put every stem of a rose plant under pressure, bending and stressing it, the rose will flower more prolifically. The plant's biochemistry tells the bush it's on the way out and so needs to make as many flowers as possible.

THE SISSINGHURST ROSE PRUNING TECHNIQUE

Climbers and ramblers

The rose pruning season at Sissinghurst starts in November with the climbers and ramblers that cover almost every one of the terracotta brick walls.

First, the gardeners cut off most of that year's growth. This keeps the framework of the rose clear and prevents the plant from becoming too woody.

Next, large woody stems are taken out - almost to the base - to encourage new shoots. These will flower the following year.

The remaining branches are re-attached to the wall, stem by stem, starting from the middle of the plant, working outwards, with the pruned tip of each branch bent down and attached to the one below.

Climbers such as 'Paul's Lemon Pillar' are a bit more reluctant than ramblers like 'Albertine' and the famous Rosa mulliganii on the frame in the centre of the White Garden, which are very bendy and easy to train.

Shrub roses

Once the wall roses are done, it's the turn of the border shrubs. They should be pruned before they come into leaf to prevent leaf buds and shoots from being damaged as their stems are manipulated. Depending on their habit, shrub roses are trained in one of three ways.

The tall, rangy bushes with stiffer branches (such as 'Charles de Mills', 'Ispahan', 'Gloire de France', 'Cardinal de Richelieu' and 'Camayeux') are twirled up a frame of four chestnut or hazel poles. Every pruned tip is bent and attached to a length below.

The big leggy shrubs, which put out great, pliable, triffid arms that are easy to tie down and train, are bent on to hazel hoops arranged around the skirts of the plant. Roses with this lax habit include 'Constance Spry', 'Fantin-Latour', 'Zéphirine Drouhin', 'Madame Isaac Pereire', 'Coupe d'Hébé', 'Henri Martin' and 'Souvenir du Dr Jamain'.

All the old and diseased wood is removed and then, stem by stem, last year's wood is bent over and tied onto the hazel hoop. You start at the outside of the plant and tie that in first and then move towards the middle, using the plant's own branches to build up the web and - in the case of 'Constance Spry' and 'Henri Martin' - create a fantastic height, one layer domed and attached to the one below. Without any sign of a flower, this looks magnificent as soon as it's complete, and in a couple of months, each stem, curved almost to ground level, will flower abundantly.

That leaves just the contained, well behaved, less prolific varieties ('Petite de Hollande', 'Madame Knorr', 'Chapeau de Napoléon', ( syn. Rosa x centifolia 'Cristata') and those that produce branches too stiff to bend ('Felicia' and the newish David Austin rose, 'William Shakespeare 2000'). These are pruned hard, then each bush is attached to a single stake, cut to about the height of the pruned bush and attached by twine. Without the stake, even these will topple under the weight of their summer growth.

For those who live in the North, where some roses are yet to leaf, you could get bending now. If your roses are already too advanced for this year, come and see how it's all done at Sissinghurst." from Sarah Raven.

"The 5 P’s For Easy Rose Growing

1. Planning

2. Preparation

3. Planting

4. Pruning

5. Preservation

Planning

Try to plan well in advance of purchasing your roses. Roses come in a multitude of sizes, habits and colours. They prefer a sunny position and a neutral or slightly acidic well drained soil. Certain roses will tolerate differing degrees of shade and some will thrive in poor soils. Do your homework.

Preparation

The area to be planted should be free of weeds and deeply dug with the addition of plenty of organic matter such as well rotted farmyard manure or garden compost plus bonemeal. Soil that has previously grown roses should be removed to a depth of 45cms and replaced with fresh soil from elsewhere. This should be completed well before planting to allow the soil to settle.

Planting

Bare root roses can be planted from November until March provided the soil is workable. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the roots. Mix a handful of bonemeal with the excavated soil. Spread the roots out in the hole and gradually replace the soil firming well so the union (where the shoots meet the roots) is 2-3 cms. below the soil, water well. If conditions are very wet or frosty when your roses arrive they can be kept unopened in their packaging for a week or more and planted as soon as things improve.

Pruning

This is a way to maintain a healthy, productive and well balanced plant. Different types of roses require different strategies so see the group headings on the website for more detailed pruning guides. Always use sharp secateurs or loppers and try to prune just above an outward facing bud (where the leaf stalk meets the stem) with a cut sloping down away from the bud. Remove any dead, damaged or diseased wood before pruning.

Preservation

Roses can be long lived plants provided they are properly maintained. They require plenty of moisture and nutrients to stay healthy and flourish. In dry spells water well, especially in the first few years after planting. The application of a deep mulch in the spring will help to retain water. Feed twice a year on heavy soils (March and June) and more regularly on lighter soils with a good rose fertilizer or fish blood and bone. Pests and diseases are best controlled with good husbandry. There are some good organic pr
