English roses are renowned for the beauty of their repeat-flowering fragrant blooms as well as good vigour and disease resistance. They typically begin flowering from June onwards.
Position: They have many uses in the garden and make excellent informal hedges. Give them an open sunny position and any deep well-drained soil including clay.
Cultivation: They need plenty of nutrients so add Bonemeal and garden compost or well-rotted manure when planting. Rootgrow (mycorrhizal beneficial fungi) sprinkled on the roots will aid root development. Use a rose fertiliser such as Toprose during the growing season.
Pruning: Newly planted English roses need little initial pruning other than a light trim and the removal of any dead, diseased, rubbing and crossing stems. Once established they can be pruned in early March to approximately half their size, aiming to create a shapely rounded plant. Prune out any dead or weak stems. In addition they may be summer-pruned: after each flush of flowers has finished, cutting back the flowering stems to two or three sets of leaves.
