These roses were potted up in November. They flowered this season on the nursery and have now been cut back ready to plant in the garden. They have been reduced in price in order to make way for next year's stock which will be available at the end of October. Fabulously fragrant, pure white, double flowers open from pink tinged buds from summer to autumn. This vigorous Bourbon rose was introduced in 1867 and has been a popular rose ever since. The dark green foliage shows off the fully double, snowball-like blooms extremely well making this a great rose for the middle of the border.Please note : All our roses have had a summer prune to tidy them up so they will not be in flower when you receive them.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.
