Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

A deservedly popular rose since its introduction in 1923. Rose ‘Phyliis Bide’ has all the old-fashioned beauty of classic ramblers but with the benefit of reliable repeat-flowering to boot!

Abundant bunches of small yellow flowers with an apricot-pink flush that fade to cream, creating a lovely two-tone effect. The flowers are long-lasting and have a medium-sweet scent. This medium-sized rambler will easily smother a large arch, pergola or wall with masses of flowers creating that quintessential, relaxed cottage garden style. Its slender, flexible branches are not too thorny making it easier to prune. Tolerant of both poor soil and partial shade it can even be grown on a north-facing wall. Height: 4.5m (15ft). Spread: 2m (6.5ft).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Plant roses at the earliest opportunity following delivery. To avoid the risk from the build-up of harmful soil organisms and disease, choose an open position in full sun that has not been planted with roses in recent years. Roses enjoy a rich, fertile, well drained soil. Dig in plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting roses and add a small handful of granular fertiliser to the planting hole.

Feed and water rose plants regularly and deadhead faded flowers. When growing roses it is necessary to remove any suckers that arise from the base of the plant, below the graft union.

Ramblers flower on flexible stems with many new stems being continually produced from the base. Due to their vigour, they can quickly become a tangle of branches if not pruned regularly. Ramblers can be pruned in late summer or winter. The advantage of winter pruning is that it is easier to work with the rose and see pruning cuts when the stems are leafless. Begin pruning ramblers by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged stems. For the first two years the remaining stems should be trained horizontally on wires until satisfactory coverage has been achieved. From the third year, the main stems can be reduced to maintain the plant within the available growing space. Prune out all the stems that have flowered and tie new ones in to take their place. Side shoots should be reduced by about two thirds to encourage branching. In winter, remove up to 1/3 of the very oldest stems right down to the base to encourage the production of new, vigorous, replacement stems. Apply a mulch of well-rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.
