Growing Calendar for Potted Rose - Special Mum 3.5L
Delivery: Late February to Late August
Rose ‘Special Mum’ will show your mum how special she is. This delightful floribunda rose is easy to grow and produces strongly scented, nectar-rich flowers that attract bees. The masses of beautiful medium candy pink flowers bloom from early summer all the way through to the autumn. Rose ‘Special Mum’ is a healthy variety and is well suited to container growing as well as the garden border. The ample blooms are ideal for cutting.
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.
