    Justifiably popular ‘Iceberg’ goes on flowering right through the summer. Clusters of pink buds open to double slightly fragrant white flowers 7cm across. It is disease-resistant and easy to grow. There is also a climbing variety.

  • Garden Care: Plant deeply in soil that has been improved with organic matter such as well-rotted garden compost or manure ensuring that the ‘bud union’ (the bulge just below the shoots) is 2.5 cm below the soil. Add a handful of balanced slow-release fertiliser such as bonemeal to the planting hole. Deadhead regularly to promote flowering. Prune lightly from late winter to early spring removing dead and diseased shoots and cutting to just above an outward-facing bud.
