MORE INFORMATION

This beautiful red rose has been named in honour of the late Captain Sir Tom Moore, who raised almost £40m for the NHS.

This 'Hybrid Tea' rose from the Harkness Roses Breeding programme will provide you garden with beautifully scented and perfectly formed, double flowered red roses. Winter hardy, the 'Captain Tom Rose' will flower from May to October and is the ideal specimen for planting in pots, beds, and borders.

For every rose that is sold, £2.50 is donated to The Captain Tom Foundation - Charity number 1189808.

Co-founder of The Captain Tom Foundation, Hannah Ingram-Moore, said: 'When we were first approached about the 'Captain Tom Rose', we really liked the idea as my father spent a lot of time in our garden in his shed, and the funds raised will enable the foundation to continue to spread my father's message of hope.'

The Captain Tom Foundation supports charities including the Royal British Legion, Mind, Helen & Douglas House Hospice.

Delivered as 1 x bare root plant, ready to plant out.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

To prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly. 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.

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

  • 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.
  • Roses tolerate wide range of soils but thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil, so add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole if necessary and plant so that the graft union (the swollen area when the stems meet the roots) is around 3cm below soil level. 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.
  • For best results, feed roses in late-March/April and again late July.
