2 Roses 'Indigoletta' and 1 Metal Rose Arch - Shrub
When you receive the bare rooted Climbing Rose 'Indigoletta', place in a bucket full of lukewarm water overnight. These climbing rose plants grow best when planted in the ground. Prepare a large hole and fill with good quality soil mixed with granulated 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.
The Climbing Rose 'Indigoletta' is a must for the garden with its unusual violet flowers.
To encourage new growth deadhead the faded flowers, right up to the first five leaflet leaf. Climbing rose 'Indigoletta' requires plenty of food in order to experience a rich bloom, which means fertilizing on a regular basis. In the winter place granulated cow manure around the base, in early spring apply a mixed organic fertilizer and in July a special rose fertilizer. Look on the package for the correct dosage. To protect the vulnerable graft union point, we advise creating a mound of earth around the base of the bush before the start of winter. Spread this earth out again before pruning in the spring.
