Frequently Asked Questions

   

Q. What is a rose sucker?

A. Suckers are shoots that grow from the rootstock rather than from the named variety which has been grafted onto it. If nothing is done then the suckers will take over the plant completely and you will have a bush that has reverted back to the root stock.

You can tell if it is a sucker if you see that it is coming from below the bud union and by the different leaf form and colour.   Suckers can appear anywhere from the bud union downwards.  Any growth above the bud union is new growth and NOT a sucker.

Don't go by the number of leaflets as a guide as that is a bit off an old wives tale.

Try to pull or break the sucker off at the base rather than cutting it, as cutting stimulates growth again. Pulling it or breaking it off at the base causes the wound to make a callous and heal over.

ALWAYS REMEMBER ME

Hybrid Tea Rose 3ft

The flowers of this hybrid tea are a soft peachy apricot, lightly scented and produced singly. Leaves are glossy and large and new growth is a bright copper red. Habit is upright. Rosa Always Remember Me is a medium growing plant reaching about 3 feet (100cms). Do you remember PC Bill Barker? His name is synonymous with the Cumbrian floods of 2009 when he was swept away from a collapsing bridge in Workington when ensuring the safety of others. His family and the community will never forget the courage of a people’s hero. And in years to come, a new rose called “Always Remember Me�? will blossom in memory of PC Barker’s steadfast nature. Sales of the rose will benefit the Air Rescue, an important charity nominated by PC Barker.

Available from Country Garden Roses from December 2012.

ROSE NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

THE MERCY ROSE Supports THE MERCY SHIPS

Mercy Rose

Mercy Ships UK has released a new ‘Mercy Rose’ potted plant which is now available to buy.

Proceeds from the sales of the potted plant will go towards funding the world’s largest charity hospital ship that provides free medical care and humanitarian aid to the poorest countries in Africa.

The launch of the potted plant follows the success of the initial Mercy Rose bare root plant which was launched last year in August.

These unique pale pink roses have been developed over time to provide a floribunda bush rose that blooms from June to late autumn. A cluster of up to nine buds reveal delicate shell-pink flowers with a fresh, spicy perfume. The Mercy Rose potted plant is now available from Mercy Ships and costs £11.95.

The Mercy Rose is grown by Harkness, specialist rose growers for over 130 years. Funds raised from the sale of the Mercy Rose help pay for the medical care provided on board the Africa Mercy which is currently finishing a six-month field service in Togo, West Africa.

You can acquire either the potted plant or the bare root plant direct from Mercy Ships by calling 01438 727800 or by e-mailing [email protected].

NEW ROSES FOR 2012

OLYMPIC SPIRIT

Floribunda. 1988. 2ft-3ft

An attractive rose with clusters of orange blend blooms which are quite a striking colour. Flowers in flushes throughout the summer and into autumn and the first frosts. Produces plenty of blooms so the spent blooms should be removed regularly to promote repeat flowering and to keep the plant tidy.    Nice healthy foliage and good disease resistance. The stems are not very long being a floribunda, but it does make an attractive cut flower. Fruity fragrance.

 Not very well known at the moment, but that should all change soon with the next Olympic Games coming to London in 2012.
