To ensure successful growth of the Avila™ Rose, follow these planting conditions. Choose a location that receives a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. You need to opt for well-drained soil rich in organic matter, enhancing the plant's growth. Maintain proper spacing to allow healthy air circulation between plants and ensure the graft union is at or slightly above ground level when planting. Ensuring that the graft union (i.e. where the cultivar joins the rootstock and the point from which the branches originate) is at soil level (not below as this is reported to increase the risk of rose dieback). Keep the soil consistently moist without over-watering, focusing on deep watering at the root zone. With these planting conditions in place, your Avila™ Rose will thrive, gracing your garden with its vibrant blooms and inviting fragrance.
Watering and feeding the Avila™ Rose is paramount to maintain its health and vigour. When it comes to watering, aim for consistent soil moisture, ensuring the root zone is deeply saturated, especially during dry spells or warm periods. Morning watering is advised to allow the foliage to dry during the day, reducing the risk of fungal diseases. It's beneficial to avoid overhead watering to prevent fungal issues. The application of organic compost around the rose's base helps in preserving soil moisture, regulating temperature, and inhibiting weed growth.
For feeding, use slow release rose fertilisers and adhere to the manufacturer's guidelines regarding application rates and schedules. Typically, roses benefit from two primary feedings, usually in Spring and late Spring or early Summer. By diligently implementing these watering and feeding practices, your rose will flourish, gracing your garden for years to come.
Caring for the Avila™ Rose involves a set of practices to ensure its health and vitality, enhancing its stunning beauty year after year. Regular pruning is essential, typically carried out during late Winter or early Spring when the plant is dormant. This entails removing dead or diseased branches, shaping the plant, and stimulating fresh growth and continuous blooming. To maintain prolific flowering throughout the growing season, it's crucial to practice deadheading, the removal of spent blossoms. This encourages the production of new flowers and keeps the rose looking pristine.
