Probably the most famous & popular Rose of all time Peace has beautiful primrose-yellow flowers that fade to blush-pink at the tips. Each of its large, showy double blooms is accompanied by a delightful light fragrance! Repeat-flowering, disease resistant and easy to grow, this hardy, vigorous Hybrid Tea variety is a brilliant garden performer. Endorsed by the RHS Award of Garden Merit and public alike - It has been voted World's Favourite Rose too in 1976. It is steeped in history and was named in 1945 to commemorate the end of World War II, having been smuggled out of France as a seedling during hostilities. Later that year Peace roses were given to delegations at the inaugural meeting of the United Nations with a note that read We hope the Peace rose will influence mens thoughts for everlasting world peace. 'Peace is the finest Hybrid Tea ever raised and it will remain a standard variety forever' - Peter Beales, Rose Expert.
- To prune, just remove any dead, dying, damaged and diseased stems and also deadhead regularly. Traditionally, you would cut just above a leaf joint with a sloping cut away from the bud, however, this isn't necessary, and don’t worry about pruning too much - roses are very resilient and will grow back. When pruning, make sure that your secateurs are clean and sharp to prevent squashing stems and introducing disease. Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help the plant establish quicker.
- Roses can be planted at any time of the year, as long as the soil is not frozen, waterlogged or drought-dry.
- Plant your rose where it can get plenty of sun for at least half of the day, and where it will be sheltered from the wind.
- Roses tolerate wide range of soils but thrive in deep, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil, so add plenty of well-rotted manure into the hole if necessary and plant so that the graft union (the swollen area when the stems meet the roots) is around 3cm below soil level.
- Water well every other day - daily if the weather is hot and dry. Established roses can be watered around once a week through spring and summer - more if the weather is hot.
- For best results, feed roses in late-March/April and again in late July.
