Fab at 30 | Floribunda Rose
A floriferous rose variety forming beautiful, fragrant blooms
This rose has been attentively grown at our trusted English nursery; admired for producing beautiful, quality roses for many years. A Floribunda variety, 'Fab at 30' will benefit from a light pruning in autumn, and a more significant pruning in spring (try to mimic the shape of an open wine glass frame to maximise light and airflow around the plant). When you first plant this rose, mulch with organic material to keep weeds at bay and boost nutrients, and also water plentifully. As the weather warms up, you will find that your rose will grow very quickly, bursting into life!
|Supplied As||5L pot|
|Height on Arrival
Your rose's height depends on the variety it belongs to and when it's purchased. Some roses are pruned to 15cm high when dormant; this ensures that it won't get uprooted in the wind, and is less vulnerable to disease.
|Eventual Height and Spread
Your rose's eventual size can depend on both environmental and genetic conditions.
|Rose Type||Floribunda, repeat cluster flowering|
|Fragrant?||Yes, a medium fragrance|
Our roses are carefully pruned during the colder months to ensure that they present strong, healthy growth in spring. For that reason, you may find that a rose that arrives early in the year is cut back to around 6 inches above the ground. Rest assured that it will burst into life come springtime, growing to 2ft (or more) in the first year.
Later in the year, we endeavour to send out a rose with several buds that is just about ready to flower. We ensure this supply by staggering the early pruning to delay flowering. Although not always possible, the majority of customers will receive a plant with flowers that are about to bloom.
We wrap the roots of our bare root plants and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra bit of protection prevents them from drying out and allows them to get off to a flying start.
Our trusted rose grower has spent years developing the perfect packaging to protect your plant. The extra thick, cardboard box has a specially designed clamp to hold the pot in place at the bottom of the box. This prevents any movement during transit, keeping your rose safe and secure.
