  • Garden care: Avoid planting in a site in which roses have recently been grown. Apply a balanced fertiliser and a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in late-winter or early-spring. Prune after flowering reducing side-shoots to between two and four buds.
