Planting and flowering details
Large-flowered roses combined with other plantsThese large-flowered 'tea' roses bring big blousy blooms, one per stem, from June until the first frost. Such great eye-catchers in your garden. This is a really lovely variety that will look beautiful in a border surrounded with a buxus hedge! You can combine them with other plants and shrubs, although a well-filled rose bed has plenty of appeal just on its own. You can grow lower growing plants around the base such as Lamium Maculatum 'Beacon Silver'. Place them near a group of lavender or plant tulips so that they can bloom between your roses during the spring.
Show moreTo encourage new growth, deadhead the faded flowers and snip back right up to the first five fingered leaf. They require plenty of food in order to experience a rich bloom, which means fertilising on a regular basis. In the winter apply granulated cow manure around the base of the large-flowered roses. In early spring apply an organic manure and in July, use a special rose fertiliser. See the pack for correct dosage.
Pruning hybrid rosesLarge 'tea' roses should be pruned every spring. Prune in March leaving only about five of the strongest branches. Prune each branch until there are 3-5 eyelets left (these are dormant buds - difficult to detect). The roses that you'll receive from us have already been pruned, so they only need to be pruned about a year to 18 months later.
Show moreOur large-flowering roses are commonly known as hybrid-tea roses with large, lightly fragrant flowers. The double flowers are in beautiful shades. These rose bushes are very strong and healthy and flower in abundance.
