Hardy, robust and vigorous for its age, this variety thrives best when grown on a south-facing aspect.

Planting Instructions

How to plant Mrs Sam McGredy

Mrs Sam McGredy should be planted between autumn and spring when there is no snow and when temperatures are above freezing. Like most roses they prefer well drained soil and enjoy the addition of well rotted manure or compost at planting time. A generous 1/2 bucket per plant is ample. The graft (union) should be level with the surrounding soil when you finish planting. A top dressing of Vitax Rose Fertiliser in spring encourages a real show in summer

Fully grown these roses will climb to around 15CFCbCbCb in height and spread, and they should be positioned on a South-facing aspect in order to achieve the greatest of their potential. Expect repeat flowering from around May right through into the beginning of Autumn.
