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.
When providing your roses with a supporting show and companion planting try and leave a bit of space around their root zone clear.
*Kordes Perfumer notes: The scent of this rose reminds of the clear fresh air after a summer rain. The sweet note of pear changes to a soft apple when the blooms open. Even more fruity aspects like apricot develop as the bloom matures, with a classic rose and geranium scent mix to create the flowery heart note. Best fragrance time is at midday and in the evening.
