Gertrude Jekyll, a short climber; it is always one of the first English Roses to start flowering. It bears perfect, little, scrolled buds, which open into the most beautiful rosette-shaped blooms of glowing bright pink. They have a strong, perfectly balanced Old Rose scent – often described as being the quintessential rose fragrance. Named after the famous garden designer. Perfect for planting in a sunny spot, next to a doorway, pillar, obelisk or doorway.
Roses prefer a soil which has good water holding capacity but is never waterlogged. A clay loam is ideal but roses will grow in most soils. Improve light soils by digging in plenty of compost and prepare the ground by deep digging prior to planting.
Roses love lots of sun but they will be fine with some afternoon shade. Five hours of sunlight is adequate. Most roses won’t do well in a very windy position but they do need good ventilation. An overcrowded situation makes them more susceptible to disease.
