Rose 'Nostalgie'® - Shrub
A cutting rose from the garden!
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'® looks great in the border
This rose is great as a cut flower, but Rose 'Nostalgie'® also looks stunning in the border. The creamy-white with cherry-red colour blends well with lavender and other rose varieties.
These flowers last a very long time in a vase. Pick the flowers preferably early in the morning. Cut the stems as long as possible and preferably cut just above a new shoot. Remove the bottom leaves and put the stems 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 fertiliser 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.
