Growing Calendar for Rose (Bush) Iceberg - Bare Root
Delivery: Early November to Early March
Rose Iceberg is one of the best known white roses; Iceberg roses are healthy and disease resistant. Ultra hardy and completely reliable, Rose Iceberg flowers for a very long time, often well into December. Iceberg is a classic floribunda bush rose, sending up abundant sprays of slightly scented roses. In rainy weather the petals can take on a pink-speckled appearance but this is normal and nothing to worry about.
Rose Iceberg has been given an RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM) as an excellent garden worthy plant.
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 roots 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.
