Plant bareroot roses at the earliest opportunity following delivery. If planting is not possible then 'heel them in' by covering the roots with soil until conditions allow them to be planted in their permanent positions. When growing roses, choose a position in fertile well drained soil in full sun. Roses are greedy plants so add a small handful of granular fertiliser and mix some well rotted manure or compost to the soil. Dig a hole of sufficient width and depth to comfortably accommodate the bareroot plant. Position the plant in the hole so that the base of the stems sits just below soil level. Backfill the soil around the roots of the plant, firm in, and water well. Stems of climbing roses will require training against a suitable support such as a pergola, fence or wall.
Feed and water roses regularly. Deadhead faded flowers. In autumn apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. In late summer begin pruning roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. For the first two years the remaining stems should simply be trained horizontally on wires. From the third year, the main stems can be reduced to maintain the plant within the available growing space. Side shoots should be reduced to 3 buds.

ALMOST ROSEY IN THE GARDEN
By Deborah Clarke 20-03-2015
MY FAVOURITE FLOWER AND WITH A BIT OF ATTENTION TO GET THEM INTO THE BEST AREA, MOST OF THEM PROVIDED ME WITH STUNNING BLOOMS AND THE MOST UPLIFTING AROMA FROM THE GOLDEN SHOWER, I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS SEASONS DISPLAY. HOWEVER 2 OF THE PLANTS HAVE REFUSED TO GROW. THEY ARE STILL ALIVE, BUT HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING AT ALL. I HAVE PLACED THEM IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT AREAS BUT STILL NOTHING. HOPEFULLY NOW THEY HAVE RESTED ALL WINTER I WILL GET A BLOOM FROM THEM THIS YEAR. I BELIEVE THEY REQUIRE A BIT OF PATIENTS.
Thank you for your review and for taking the time to provide your comments. I hope we can continue to be of service.

The roses have grown well and I am looking forward to flowers next year. Bought one last year and it has flourished....no flowers yet but patience is required. Good product and worth the money.
