Choose patio rose variety Wildfire, great for small spaces for years of hot summer colour. With its many fragrant flame-orange roses that appear from June and continue through the whole summer Wildfire makes a welcome addition to a sunny site outdoors, especially with neighbouring formal shrubs or topiary.
Grow patio rose Wildfire in patio pots, one plant to a 30cm (12in) pot, and fill with rich soil which your rose plant will thank you for with its many beautiful blooms. Replace the surface of your container every spring with a fresh layer of nutrient-rich compost.
Rose Wildfire makes an effective low hedge too. Create a hedge around half a metre to where you are growing tender crops or half hardy ornamentals. The hedge will filter wind and draughts and act as a natural windbreak.
Your rose plant on arrival:
You receive your rose, delivered to your door in a 4.5 litre pot filled with rich moist compost. The rose itself is pruned to three or four main stems which form an open and attractive framework once the bud come into leaf and produce attractive young red-tinged leaves. Each stem is expertly pruned to just above a bud for healthy plant growth.
Your 4.5 litre pot is wrapped in polythene to encourage humidity and maintain moist soil. You can keep your plant in its pot until you have time to plant it in a larger container or a flower bed. Plant on a clear, dry rain. Add Westland Naturally Rich Rose Food to the bottom of your planting hole to give your plant a boost to the roots. We also recommend that you give your plant a thorough water after planting.
