When it comes to growing and keeping roses at their healthy best, there’s few that can rival the knowledge our own Garden Centre Manager Jack Kitson. Here he gives us a rundown on best practice to keep your plants enjoying a series of blooms throughout the summer.
Over the course of the season we will pot in the region of 25,000 individual roses. These are hand watered, fed and treated 361 days a year so they are in perfect condition.
The benefits of a rose hedge include a long flowering period, the potential for a heady scent, a source of food and shelter for wildlife and depending upon the variety, an impenetrable barrier.
Climbing roses can be grown up houses, over fences, arches and pergolas, even through trees! They grow quickly and it’s essential that you choose the right rose for your location
