Rose 'Nostalgie' - Shrub
A cutting rose from the garden!
'Nostalgie is a rose with a distinctive shape, fragrance and a rare colour combination of creamy-white with cherry-red. Most roses bred commercially for cutting are grown in the greenhouse, but 'Nostalgie' can be grown outdoors as it is so robust. Consequently 'Nostalgie' is one of the most beautiful roses to appear on the market in recent years. The fragrance is quite bewitching. Definitely well worth a try.
When you receive the bare rooted rose 'Nostalgie', place in a bucket full of lukewarm water overnight. These rose bushes grow best when planted in the ground. Prepare a large hole and improve the soil with compost and granulated cow manure. Spread the roots of the rose 'Nostalgie' 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 press firmly with your foot. Plant in a sunny position so that it experiences a rich bloom.Rose 'Nostalgie' is great in the border
Rose 'Nostalgie' is great as a cut flower and also looks beautiful in the border. The creamy-white with cherry-red colour will tone well with Lavender and other rose varieties.
These flowers survive a very long time in a vase. Pick the flowers preferably early in the morning. Cut the stem so it's as long as possible and preferably cut just above a new shoot. Remove the bottom leaves and put the stem directly into a bucket full of lukewarm water with flower food. Due to their strong stems, rose 'Nostalgie' can be used with oasis.
Rose 'Nostalgie' needs plenty of food in order to experience a rich bloom. Provide it with manure regularly; in the winter, place granulated cow manure around its base. Give it a mixed organic fertilizer early in the spring and special rose manure in July to allow for a great bloom and growth. To protect its sensitive graft union during the winter, we recommend you create a mound of soil around its base. Before you prune in spring, spread the soil between the bushes.Nostalgie' needs to be pruned
This rosebush needs to be pruned every spring. Prune in March leaving only about five of the strongest branches. Prune all branches until there are 3-5 eyes left (these are dormant buds that are difficult to detect). Always cut at an angle so that rain water can drip off. Also remove any unwanted suckers from the roots and any growth that is either dead or diseased. The roses that you'll receive from us have already been pruned, so they only need to be pruned the following year.
