STANDARD ROSES

Standard roses are roses that are specially grafted at the top of a standard length rootstock. This provides a mass ball of foliage and an abundance of flowers on top of a straight stem. The elevated growth and formal appearance make for an eye-catching attraction to any garden. Whether mass planted along side a pathway or driveway, potted on either side of an entrance, or planted in a row behind a small hedge, standard roses always look great.

We grow are standard roses in two sizes. Our tallest is approximately 90cm high, and is grown in a 250mm pot. The smaller is a patio standard which is approximately 70cm high, and is grown in a 200mm pot.

Rose Care

 

Unfortunately, many people consider growing roses too hard and difficult. If you follow these simple hints, anyone can grow great roses. Check out our newest YouTube video below for a guide on how to plant your new roses.

Position

Roses love sunlight, therefore choose a bright open sunny position.

Choose the right variety

There are literally thousands of rose varieties to choose from, some more disease resistant than others. If you have never grown roses before, start with the Iceberg varieties. They are the most disease resistant and always flower no matter how they are treated. If you are considering other varieties, check with your neighbours and friends, which varieties they prefer and grow best your area. Also examine the plants carefully in the nursery and only purchase those that are disease free and looking vigorous and healthy.

Planting

Roses will tolerate many soils, from sandy loam through to heavy clays. No matter what your soil type it is always a good idea to enrich the soil by turning over and digging in some organic matter, such as compost, garden mix or cow manure. Dig the whole twice the size of the pot. Remove the pot and if root bound, gently tease the roots. Place the root ball in the hole, keeping it at the same level as it was in the pot and then backfill. Water well and keep moist for the first couple of weeks, until the roots grow out into your soil. If planting in rural areas, don’t forget to protect roses from rabbits and or wallabies as they will feast on the new shoots.

Mulching
To reduce water loss and reduce weeds always apply mulch. There are many suitable mulches, sugarcane, lucerne, teatree, leaf litter etc.

Watering
The drought in the past couple of years, has certainly proven how hardy and drought resistant roses actually are. Once established, they will survive without any irrigation, although for best results it is ideal to give them two good soakings a week in the hot summer months.

Fertilising
Fertilise regulary, after every flush of flowers, during the growing season. the key is to fertilise in small amounts, but often. we recommend the use of organic fertilisers such as, Organic Life, chicken manure, blood and bone, cow manure or Dynamic Lifter. Water your plant well; remove any mulch from around the trunk. Spread the fertiliser evenly around the soil underneath the canopy, but not directly against the trunk. The amount varies, depending on which fertiliser you choose. Don’t be afraid, you can apply a few large handfulls per plant of organic fertiliser.  Generally the organic fertilisers are less harmful if you accidentally overfeed.

Pruning
Many people are terrified of pruning roses, in case they get it wrong. The first rule in rose pruning is don’t be scared!

 

Summer  Pruning
Throughout the growing season as each flush of flowers finishes and the petals start to drop, dead head these blooms. This is simply done buy cutting off the finished flower and a small portion of stem below it. This simply encourages the plant to shoot away with new growth producing more flowers.

Winter  Pruning
Winter pruning is done each year, ideally around the end of June or start of July when the rose is loosing its leaves and going dormant. A general rule of thumb is prune off two thirds and leave one third. Remember, don’t be scared.

before pruning 

 

Start by pruning at least half the growth away. This enables you to see what your doing.

after pruning half the growth

Next prune out any dead or diseased branches.

Now prune any branches that are crossing over each other or shooting in towards the centre of the bush. This opens up the plant, forming a vase shape.

Finally go over the entire plant and further reduce the height and prune back to an outward facing bud. Try to cut at an angle to reduce the risk of dieback.

 

 

 

That’s it! Your done!

One rose plant successfully pruned.

It wasn’t that difficult, was it?

Planting a rose?

Watch how simple it is!
