Growing Calendar for Potted Rose - The Birthday Rose 3.5L
Delivery: Late February to Late August
Rose ‘The Birthday Rose’is the perfect gift on a gardener’s birthdays. This beautiful floribunda rose produces a mass of deep cream flowers that last until the first frost. The lovely sweet scent that exudes from the prolific blooms will last well into October and even November in mild years. This thoughtful birthday rose is a gift that will last for years to come.
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.
