Product Information

There is something so special and iconic about classic English Shrub Roses.

This is an old-fashioned type of rose with intricate and full centres of heavenly apricot petals that flow around one-another to form the most remarkable patterns. Breeding over many years has made them so much easier to grow in any garden, big or small, either in larger pots or in borders and beds.

This variety has been bred to have both a good fragrance and superb disease resistance, which is not always seen with roses, but our growers have managed it! Best of all, it is a repeat flowerer and will bloom for up to five months of the year with little deadheading - although you may wish to keep them tidy.

English Shrub Roses are a little more vigorous and less formal than Hybrid Tea varieties, so can be mixed with other shrubs to form superb border displays.

Supplied as one bare root plant, trimmed back to 30-35cm, dormant without leaves, ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease.

Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.

Care Information

  • Roses tolerate wide range of soils but thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil, so add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole if necessary and plant so that the graft union (the swollen area when the stems meet the roots) is around 3cm below soil level. Water well every other day - daily if the weather is hot and dry.
  • Established roses can be watered around once a week through spring and summer - more if the weather is hot.
  • For best results, feed roses in late-March/April and again in late July.
  • Before planting, plunge bare root plants into a bucket of water for half an hour to rehydrate.
  • To prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly.
  • Traditionally, you would cut just above a leaf joint with a sloping cut away from the bud, however, this isn't necessary, and donít worry about pruning too much - roses are very resilient and will grow back.
