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 40' 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!

About your Rose
  • Planting Requirements
  • Planting Guide
  • Planting Essentials

The key is to regularly water newly-planted plants, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure adequate spacing between bushes, which is determined by a rose's eventual height and spread.

Rose plants are easy to grow. Your plants growth and output will likely be fine providing you followed our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: Modern roses are produced from a amalgamation of rose species - many of which that are from far colder regions than the UK - and are fully hardy.
  • Position: Rose plants benefit from being planted in full sun. Planting your plant in a sheltered spot will allow the plant to put more resources into flowering.
  • Soil Types: Soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Having said that, less than ideal conditions will reduce growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis, cause its roots to rot and create the perfect environment for many diseases. Similarly, compressed soils can starve a plant of oxygen and water, so do not compress the soil when planting. Aeration can be improved further with mulching.
  • Planting in Pots: Patio and miniature roses will suffice in 40cm pots, while compact ground cover and climbing roses will suffice in 60cm containers. You should prune your rose's roots prior to planting to encourage fibrous growth, apply mulch and water regularly in the warmer months.

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.
