rose Sharifa Asma (shrub) £12.99
Position: full sunSoil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil, including clayRate of growth: fast-growingFlowering period: July to SeptemberFlower colour: blush pink fading to whiteOther features: excellent cut-flowersHardiness: fully hardyFragrant, double, blush pink flowers from July to September and mid-green leaves. This beautiful, repeat-flowering English rose has a distinctive fragrance, reminiscent of white grapes and mulberry. An excellent specimen for a mixed or shrub border it’s best planted in partial shade, since the delicate petals may be damaged by hot sun.Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell, incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the ‘bud union’ (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.All our roses are field grown. In October/November they are dug up and potted. However, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don’t be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when winter planting. Some suppliers send out ‘bare root’ plants unpotted, but we don’t as it is easier to manage them on the nursery in pots.
