PLANT ADVICE - If planting in Autumn and Winter use bonemeal mixed in with the compost. Use rootgrow (mychorrhizal fungi) if roses have been planted there before to develop a robust root system, and fresh top soil.

AFTERCARE - Feed in early Spring with Toprose and again midsummer, mix in the soil and water well. Water your rose until it is well established. The first Spring after planting is essential , the roots are deep so water thoroughly. Once the rose is established water at least once a fortnight more during dry spells. Potted containers need watering more regularly to keep the soil moist.

PRUNING -   You can lightly prune back in Autumn if desired. Roses are best pruned in March, remove any dead, diseased, weak or crossing stems. Try to keep the centre open. Shorten back the strongest remaining shoots to approx 4-6in from the base, to the point where last year's growth began. Deadhead regularly.
