Roses, When to Plant and How to Prevent Black Spot

Posted 24 Aug 2016

Hi Mistchatt,

This all depends on the type of Rose plant you have,Bare-root roses should be planted in late autumn when the leaves are falling from trees, and from late winter to early spring, before growth resumes. Avoid planting in the colder months of winter when the ground is frozen.

Containerised and container-grown roses can be planted all year round, provided the ground is neither frozen, nor very dry.

There are lots of different smelling roses, some strong and others are more subtle and can also vary from sweet smelling to musky.  The best thing to do is to visit a public garden such as RHS Wisley, where you can smell a vast variety of roses.  Alternatively, the following may be of help:

Highly Perfumed Roses

Prevention of Black Spot is difficult as it is an airborne fungus, but good garden hygiene is paramount in keeping it at bay and from spreading.  The following article provides all the information you need: Black Spot.

Kind Regards
