A RANGE of beautiful new roses become available during winter so now is the perfect time to start planning which varieties you want to plant in your garden.
Yates have three stunning new release roses from Treloar Roses to tempt you -
Unconventional Lady (Korsamasi)
This is a hybrid tea rose with large deep pink fragrant flowers. The vigorous bush grows to around 1.6 m tall and its long flower stems make it a wonderful rose for cutting.
Climbing Future (Korjoslio)
It's a climbing rose that is covered in softly scented large white flowers with a pale pink blush.
Growing to around 2m tall, it's a beautiful rose for growing against a fence or over a large arch.
Garden of Roses (Korfloci)
This one is a floribunda rose with delicately scented, full soft apricot blooms. It's a compact rose, growing to around 60 cm high, so is ideal for smaller gardens and pots.
- Roses do best in cool to warm temperate zones.
- When deciding on where to plant any new roses in your garden, choose a spot with well-drained soil that receives at least six hours of sunshine a day.
- An area with good air movement is also beneficial, as this will help to reduce disease problems.
- If planting a new rose in a pot, use a pot that has good drainage holes and fill with a good quality potting mix like Yates Premium Potting Mix.
