Growing Calendar for Potted Rose - Esperanza 3.5L
Delivery: Late February to Late August
Rose ‘Esperanza’ is an eye catching shrub rose with excellent disease resistance. It’ll grow well in most conditions and is ideal for a mixed border. ‘Esperanza’ will really stand-out, not least for its quality of health and tolerance to diseases. It produces really beautiful coral-pink rose blooms that look the part in mixed borders as well as in containers.
Plant roses into good garden soil that has been well dug and weeded; improve poor soil with compost. Dig a hole wide enough to take the root ball of the rose without cramping. Position the rose centrally in the planting hole with the bump on the stem (the graft union) level with the soil surface. Back fill with soil to cover the rose’s roots, firm in gently and water well. Prune roses to shape in spring and deadhead spent flowers as they fade to prolong the display.
