Fairytale Roses are English style roses bred to enchant. They are robust and flower tirelessly; they are a result of a breeding program from renowned growers, Kordes, that doesn’t use pesticides and fungicides, so only the strongest survive and become available to gardeners.
Tesselaar has selected this rose variety especially because it is vigorous, hardy and disease resistant.
Rose bushes are upright, elegant shrubs that are adorned twice a year with spectacular, showy blooms.
The basics of rose care are simply ...
1. Keep the plants moist at all times, but never allow the roots to sit in water.
2. Feed generously, and frequently, two or three times over the flowering season.
3. Keep pests to a minimum (this is usually not a problem if you start with a strong variety, and keep it well watered and well fed).
4. Prune back once a year .
5. Keep the area around the roots weed free, and ensure 4-6 hours of sun per day. Loamy soils are ideal, though Roses will grow in heavy top soils (if well drained) and sandy soils (if kept watered and fed more frequently). For Roses to thrive, good drainage is critical.
