Planting Conditions

Planting Florentina®, your climbing Rose is a straightforward process, but it requires attention to detail. Choose a location with well-drained soil and full sun exposure, as these roses thrive in bright light. Ensure proper spacing, allowing at least 4-6 feet (1.2-1.8 meters) between each plant to allow for air circulation and healthy growth. Dig a hole deep and wide enough to accommodate the root system and amend the soil with compost or organic matter to improve fertility and drainage. Incorporating a sturdy trellis or support structure for youthful climbing varieties is essential. Adequate planting conditions set the foundations to allow Florentina® Climbing Rose to flourish in your garden for years to come.

Watering & Feeding

Caring for Florentina® Climbing Roses involves regular and consistent watering. Keep the soil evenly moist but avoid waterlogged conditions. Water at the base of the plant to prevent fungal issues. These roses benefit from a balanced and slow-release fertiliser application during the growing season, providing essential nutrients for vigorous growth and abundant blooms. Pruning and deadheading spent flowers help maintain the plant's shape and encourage further flowering with an abundance of blooms. Proper watering and feeding practices contribute to the health and vitality of your Florentina® climbing Rose, ensuring they continue to adorn your garden with their stunning and fragrant blossoms.

General Care

General care for your Florentina® climbing Rose involves regular pruning, deadheading, and monitoring for potential pests and diseases. Prune in late Winter or early Spring to remove dead or diseased wood, promote new growth, and maintain the desired shape. Regularly deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming. Keep an eye out for common rose pests, including aphids, spider mites, and rose beetles, as well as diseases like powdery mildew and black spot. Treat promptly if necessary to prevent infestations and maintain plant health. Mulching around the base of the roses helps retain moisture and suppress weeds, while providing a sturdy trellis or support ensures they maintain their climbing habit. Diligent care safeguards against pests and diseases, allowing these roses to thrive, adorning your garden with their breathtaking blooms and fragrance.
