Primrose Guides


Ground Cover Rose

Ground cover roses are known for being incredible performers. They reliably produce masses of showstopping flowers every year and are perfect for using in low borders or patio pots. They blossom horizontally as opposed to vertically so are great for spreading and filling in unwanted gaps in your garden. In this case your garden will be full of wonderful scarlet flowers which contrast beautifully against the dark green foliage. Ground cover roses also have excellent disease resistance and are one of the easiest to grow. They also become drought tolerant once established.

Long Flowering Rose

Every year ground cover roses produce masses of flowers over a long period. With a low spreading habit this ground cover rose is brilliant for using in previously sparse areas of your garden to ensure that it will be full of wonderful colour for many months of the year. In this case you can expect your rose bush to repeatedly bloom from May all the way through to September with masses of bright scarlet flowers that cover nearly the entire bush.

Planting and Care

Your rose should be planted in soil with a pH of 6.0-6.5 in a sunny spot with shelter from the cold winds. A nearby hedge or fence is good but should not be too close that it shades the bush. Your rose will need good drainage as it will not grow in waterlogged soil. Roses should be planted from Late October to March and the ground should not be waterlogged or frozen.

Water young roses regularly until established. All roses will need plenty of water in a period of drought in spring and summer. Apply a layer of mulch in spring. Frequent hoeing will help keep down weeds not smothered by mulching. Feed your rose every year using a proprietary compound fertiliser. Roses need frequent deadheading to remove faded blooms and also need to be pruned yearly. For more information about how to plant and maintain your rose bush please click here to see our guides.
