CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

  • When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Compassion Rose:

  • Roses can be planted at any time of the year, as long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or drought dry.
  • Plant your rose where it can get plenty of sun for at least half of the day, and where it will be sheltered from the wind.
  • Add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole and plant so that the graft union (the swollen are when the stems meet the roots) is just below soil level.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.


 

Aftercare Information for your 'Compassion' rose:

  • Water well every other day - daily if the weather is hot and dry.
  • Established roses can be watered around once a week through spring and summer - more if the weather is hot.
  • Stems can be tied into a support as they grow.
  • For best results, feed roses in in late-March/April and again late July.

 

Pruning Advice for Rosa Compassion:

  • To prune, remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly.
  • Prune in winter, after the flowers have faded, between December and February. Long whippy shoots can be shortened by a third and tied in during autumn, to prevent wind damage.
  • Traditionally, you would cut just above a leaf joint with a sloping cut away from the bud, however, this isn't necessary, and donít worry about pruning too much - roses are very resilient and will grow back.
