 GROWING CARE:

Like all roses,  a little extra care is required for best results.    A rose-care spray on a regular basis ensures maximum flowering, growth and enjoyment and minimises the risk of traditional rose problems.    

HINT #1:   Roses prefer a fertilizer with less nitrogen (N) and more Potash (K) where the numbers of the N:P:K are something similar to 11:5:9 [The (N) provides nitrogen and quick growth, but too much of this above Potash (K) makes the plant more susceptible to disease. The Potash in this balance helps flowering and hardens the plant. 

Because of the continual flowering,  a handful of slow release fertilizer with trace elements ensures great flowering in spring and again in summer is ideal.

HINT #2: Check with your local nursery outlet for the best rose spray to use in your area to keep your plants in prime condition.
