Rose Blaze Superior loves manure rich soils so when planting or potting up incorporate plenty of well-rotted manure into the planting hole. This will encourage more flowers and healthier foliage. If you’ve planted against a wall give it plenty of water in dry spells as walls and fence lines can prevent rainfall from reaching the roots. Regularly deadheading the spent flowers will encourage new buds to form. Cut back a third in late winter or early spring and remove all dead or crossed branches as this stimulates new fresh growth. A thick layer of well-rotted mulch in spring traps moisture and proves nutrients for the growing year.
