Patio roses are compact bushes with tight clusters of small flowers produced in profusion. They typically begin flowering from June onwards. They have excellent disease-resistance.

Position:  They are ideal for growing in patio pots, using John Innes Compost No. 3. In the open ground, give them an open sunny position and any deep well-drained soil including clay.

Cultivation: They need plenty of nutrients so add Bonemeal and garden compost or well-rotted manure when planting. Rootgrow (mycorrhizal beneficial fungi) sprinkled on the roots will aid root development. Use a rose fertiliser such as Toprose during the growing season.

Pruning: Newly planted Patio roses need little initial pruning other than removing any dead, diseased, rubbing and crossing stems. Established Patio roses often produce a mass of twiggy growth and in early March any unproductive wood can be pruned out, reducing the main stems that are left by about one-third to a healthy bud or lateral. Remove entirely any over-vigorous shoots that spoil the shape of the bush.
