Groundcover Roses are an amazing way to bring colour to your summer display. These roses have a broad, spreading habit, and are tough and resilient so they fill borders and carpet banks easily. Groundcover Roses can repeatedly bloom throughout the summer as they are free flowering. Many produce brightly coloured rose hips which extend the display well into autumn. These spectacular roses will cope in most soils and situations and offer good disease resistance - perfect for improving security around boundaries in those awkward corners of the garden. We cannot specify in advance which varieties we will send, but we are sure you will not be disappointed! Height: 80cm (31"). Spread: 100cm (39").

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 prior to planting.
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 winter, begin pruning shrub roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then reduce the stems lightly by no more than a third. Remaining side shoots should be reduced to two buds.
