'White The Fairy' Rambling and Trailing Rose - Shrub
When you receive your Ground Cover Roses from us, place in a bucket full of lukewarm water overnight. These rose bushes grow best when planted in the ground. Prepare a large hole and fill with good quality soil mixed with cow manure. Spread the roots of the roses out and plant them at the appropriate depth. The base of the stem should be about 5 cm below the soil surface, as they are sensitive to frost. If the soil and roots are dry, a bucket of water should be gently emptied into the planting hole. Fill the hole with the soil and continuously press with your foot. Plant in a sunny position so that it experiences a rich bloom.Ground Cover Rose 'White The Fairy' in the garden
These creeping and ground covering small roses blossom very profusely. The flexible branches are laden with hundreds of double white roses.

This variety of rose is really gorgeous in a flower bed edged with ‘Box’ hedging.

Encourage reflowering by cutting back overblown flower stems to the first five pointed leaf. Rosa polyantha requires a lot of feeding for abundant flowering so fertilise your mini roses regularly. Scatter fertiliser pellets around the foot of the shrubs in the winter, followed by a mulch of mixed organic compost in the early spring. Fertilise with special rose fertiliser in July – check the packet for correct dosage. Pile earth around the base of the plant during the winter and spread this earth out before pruning in the spring.Fertilising roses
The spray rose relies on plant food for a rich flowering. Therefore regularly apply a fertiliser. During the winter sprinkle granulated cow manure around the base of the bush. In spring apply a mixed organic fertiliser and in July use the special rose fertiliser. Check on the packaging for the correct amount to be used.
