Masses of marvellous, musk-scented, single, yellow flowers on reddish-green arching stems in May and fern-like, grey-green leaves. This pretty shrub rose makes an excellent, informal hedge for an open, sunny site. One of the first roses to flower, the distinctive, fern-like foliage is perfect for floral arrangements.Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell, incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.All our roses are field grown. In October/November they are dug up and potted. However, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be suprised if the compost falls away from the roots when winter planting. Some suppliers send out 'bare root' plants unpotted, but we don't as it is easier to manage them on the nursery in pots.
