Summer is nearly over or has it even started? So perhaps it would be a good idea to mention a few things in this blog regarding
roses and warm humid weather.
What if you have a problem with green Fly?
We use Rose Clear every week, by spraying your roses before it gets any diseases will ensure that you have a healthy rose bush, but if you do get green fly, spray the plant with 'Lavender washing up Liquid' dilute it and spray onto the plant-yes it really works.
I have a problem with Black Spot?
Rose Care Tips for the Summer
Feeding your Roses
Feed your roses with either a granular fertilizer or Liquid fertilizer. If using liquid fertilizer regular feeding every 2-3 weeks until late summer, will give you beautiful blooms throughout the growing season.
If conditions are dry, water your roses before feeding them and then keep them well hydrated afterwards, this helps the plants absorb nutrients better, and prevent fertilizer burn on roots and leaves.
Spring has been a very wet one, but we have continued to grow as a company taking on more staff, we have introduced new gift wrapping and our logo has changed together with our certificate and label layout.
All of our roses are unique and very personal to you. Each one is individually gift wrapped and the certificate and label are also personal to you.
We are the only company to print your image/photo onto the plant label using our special in house printers that print onto our waterproof and frost proof labels.
MARCH 2020 Welcome to our Blog. Its official February was the wettest on record. If you have heavy clay soil, you will need to break up some of the soil and introduce some manure or compost, or leave it to the worms… But it’s always a good idea to feed your roses now, with a good Rose Feed and again in the summer. We still have all our colours in stock, and with Mother’s Day around the corner we have got a Special Edition Coral Patio Rose bush, which will be happy in a pot or the garden, it will produce 100’s of small flowers throughout the summer.
