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 rambling 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 onto their support, and side shoots can be reduced to 4 buds. From the third year, begin to remove up to a quarter of the stems at the base of the plant. New stems will arise to replace them. Continue to reduce side shoots to four buds on the remaining stems.
