Care

Do not be fooled by there delicate appearances as these plants are very hardy. All rose regardless of root stocks are classed as very water efficient garden plants in Western Australia. These plants can go with out water for long period but to ensure top product performance regular watering and feeding is advised.

A good way to insure you are choosing the right variety is to walk your local area and observe what roses and varieties are in your area this will indicate which roses will perform for you.
Best time to plant our roses is from October to April this is when you will see strong growth and root development. We prune year round to produce salable products but in the home situation we recommend that when the flowers have expired to tip prune around an inch back from the flower to encourage new shoots and to build a larger head. Traditionally winter is the pruning season and very hard pruning at this time necessitates heavy feeding to help the rose grow. We prune after the shortest day in June to ensure good growth when the day length start to extend. Trails conducted over many years prove that the more foliage a rose carries the better its performance. Rose is pruned for two reasons to keep them in bound and to make them flower.

Roses should be fed, mulched and deadheaded and any suckers that may be produced by the root stock should be removed. There are many thoughts on how to prune a rose properly so I will provide you with this bit of information an experiment conducted on cut flowers rose shrubs in Europe between hand prune strategically, deadhead pruning and hedge trimmer found that the hedge trimmer actually produced the best re-growth, we do however recommend hand pruning cutting the stem on an angle to prevent moister sitting on the tip and removing all dead wood. As with all garden plant roses can be attacked by diseases, the best prevention is to ensure that routine maintenance and feeding as mentioned is up kept and a healthy bush is always present. The two most common diseases are Black spot and Powdery Mildew these are best taken care of by a good rose fungicide and remember sometimes prevention is better then cure.

Common pest are Aphids, Spider Mite, Thrips and Caterpillars, use Rose pesticides for these problems and always read the label and use only as directed on the label.
