Rose Bush - Francis Meilland (PBR) 200mm Pot (VN)

Description of plant at maturity:
Father of the Peace Rose. A magnificent Hybrid Tea, Francis Meilland boasts impressive very large, perfect and classically shaped double blooms of soft pastel pink to white. The long, strong stems and intense fruit and citrus fragrance makes it a delight to cut and enjoy in the home. A multiple award winner for disease resistance, this vigorous, healthy rose is clothed in dark green glossy leaves.

Prefers an open, sunny position in organic, rich, well drained soils. Improve soil by incorporating organic matter and improve poorly drained soil by raising garden beds.

Planting potted roses:
Remove the pot gently without pulling on the plant. Do not tease the roots unless they are tightly packed or spiraling. Position the plant in the hole to the same soil level as found in the pot. Water in thoroughly. Do not place any fertiliser in or around the hole at this time; wait until new growth appears.

Planting bare root roses:
Remove the plant from its bag or covering. Where roots have been confined, gently move them back into a more outward direction. Trim back any broken or long roots using sharp secateurs. Dig a hole as deep as the roots and wider. Water the hole prior to planting. Do not place fertiliser in or around the hole when planting; wait until new growth appears. Plant your rose so the bud union is 3-5cm above the soil level. Backfill around the roots. Firm the soil gently and water in well.

Remove spent flowers and dead wood as they occur. Pruning is best performed during July when the rose is dormant.

Bush, Hybrid Tea and Floribundas can be planted about 60-90cm apart. Standards, about 1m apart. Climbers, 2-4m, depending on their vigour.
